|Organization:||Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland Clinic|
|Type of Position:||Postdoctoral Fellow|
Description & Details:
An NIH-funded Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the lab of Brian Perkins in the Cole Eye Institute at the Cleveland Clinic to study retinal regeneration in zebrafish. The focus of the lab is to identify the mechanisms that regulate photoreceptor regeneration in zebrafish and to explore the role of immune cells in promoting or inhibiting regeneration in zebrafish models of inherited retinal disease.
I am seeking highly motivated, independent, creative, and enthusiastic individuals who have excellent English oral and written communication skills. The candidate must have received a Ph.D. and/or an M.D. degree and a track record of peer-reviewed publications is required. Students who will soon complete their Ph.D. degree are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate will have expertise in zebrafish genetics or vision research but applicants with strong training in neuroscience, cell biology, genetics, or biochemistry will be seriously considered.
Please email a CV, a brief description of research interests and career goals, and the names and contact information for three references to Brian Perkins at email@example.com.
