A postdoctoral position is available in the Pediatric Eye Research
Laboratory at the Retina Foundation of the Southwest, under the direction of
Eileen Birch, Ph.D. Research focuses on the necessary and sufficient
conditions for the development of single binocular vision in human infants.
Psychophysical, electrophysiological, eye movement recording and digital
imaging protocols are employed to study alignment, accommodation,
convergence, eye movements, visual function in normal infants and pediatric
patients affected by strabismus, anisometropia, cataracts, and eye movement
disorders. The laboratory is also involved in the design and conduct of
randomized clinical trials in infant nutrition and pediatric ophthalmology.
Funding is available for up to 3 years.
The research environment at the Retina Foundation of the
Southwest and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center provides
many opportunities for developing a broader knowledge of ophthalmology and
vision research. The fellow will participate in teaching seminars and the
Ethics in Human Subjects Research program at the medical center as well as
weekly research group meetings and journal clubs at the Retina Foundation of
the Southwest and monthly regional pediatric ophthalmology meetings.
