Post-doctoral position in Oculomotor Neuroscience - University of Houston
The laboratory of Dr. Vallabh Das in the College of Optometry, University of Houston, has an opening for a talented and motivated post-doctoral fellow to carry out experiments studying oculomotor mechanisms in non-human primates. The NIH funded research is focused on examining eye movement properties and neural eye movement circuits in monkeys with strabismus (eye misalignment). A specific goal for the next few years would be to perform experiments aimed at understanding how neural plasticity might affect the outcomes of surgical treatment of strabismus in the non-human primate. State of the art methodology is used in the research including developing animal models for strabismus, behavioral eye movement studies and single cell neurophysiology in the awake-behaving primate.
Candidates applying for this position should have a biology (preferably neuroscience or vision science) or engineering background. Candidates with experience in the visual-oculomotor system, experience in neurophysiology or experience working with non-human primates will be given preference. Strong math and computer skills would be a plus. Applicants should submit (via email) a current CV, a brief statement of research activities and interest, and names and contact information of 2-3 references to:
