Our laboratory seeks a postdoctoral fellow to be funded by an NEI 
institutional training grant to Smith-Kettlewell. We investigate 
interactions between oculomotor systems using naturalistic stimuli, with 
an emphasis on attentive and subconscious elements of oculomotor 
control. Our approach pairs psychophysics with eye movement recording to 
elucidate sensorimotor signal flow, and ongoing projects use fMRI to 
investigate new perspectives on circuitry underlying these processes.

Smith-Kettlewell is located in San Francisco, a hub of biomedical and 
biotech research. Our location and reputation in vision science affords 
the opportunity for postdocs to collaborate with nearby universities and 
tech companies. San Francisco has many cultural amenities that include 
diverse dining and entertainment venues, and easy access to outdoor 
activities in our many parks and waterways.

The fellowships require a Ph.D. or M.D. and are normally awarded for two 
years. Fellows who demonstrate success obtaining external funding can be 
invited to continue as sponsored investigators at the institute. 
Applications from individuals with disabilities or other 
underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged. The NEI Training 
Grant requires that fellows be US citizens or permanent residents. Note 
that the position is offered through the Smith-Kettlewell fellowship 
program, which accepts applications to all Institute labs.

Applications will be accepted until Feb 24, 2017. Details of the program 
and application procedures can be found at
