A two-year postdoctoral research position in glaucoma diagnostics is available within the Discoveries in Sight Research Laboratories at Devers Eye Institute in Portland, Oregon, USA.
The project will be supervised by Dr Stuart Gardiner and is in the broad field of glaucoma research.

Proficiency with the English language and scientific writing is essential. A record of first-authored publication(s) in peer-reviewed literature is highly desirable.
Successful candidates will work within a highly collaborative research environment that includes five Principal Investigators active in glaucoma research, from a wide range of different academic backgrounds, as well as external collaborators.
