We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to work on
NIH-funded projects in the field of retinal neurobiology. Our lab uses
molecular, histological, functional imaging, and electrophysiological
techniques to study circuit structure and function in normal and diseased
retina. Current projects include:

1)  Investigation of the physiological properties of novel amacrine and
ganglion cell types in ex vivo macaque retina.

2)  Investigation of retinal circuit remodeling and stem-cell derived
photoreceptor integration in a non-human primate model of photoreceptor
degeneration. This project is a collaborative effort funded through the NEI
Audacious Goals Initiative.

Further information about our research and links to project descriptions
can be found at: www.retinalab.berkeley.edu/research

Applicants should have a PhD in vision science, neuroscience, molecular and
cellular biology, bioengineering or a related discipline. The ideal
candidate will have experience in one or more of the following areas:
retinal electrophysiology (e.g. patch-clamp, calcium imaging or
multielectrode array recordings), immunohistochemistry, fluorescence
microscopy (e.g. confocal, two-photon, light-sheet), immunoelectron
microscopy, image analysis.

Interested candidates should submit a: (1) curriculum vitae, (2) brief
statement of research interests and (3) contact information for three
references to tpu at berkeley.edu The first rolling deadline is December 15,
2021. Informal inquiries are welcomed.
