Postdoctoral Research Fellow in retinal regeneration – University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston


The O'Brien lab is recruiting a motivated postdoctoral researcher to study the molecular basis of replacement of retinal neurons from progenitor cells in the degenerating retina.  The successful applicant will join an interdisciplinary research team employing unique animal models, genetic techniques, and modern molecular techniques.  The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston hosts a vibrant research community with strengths in neuroscience and regenerative medicine.  The rich intellectual environment is supplemented by formal career development programs and training opportunities for post-docs.

Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree, a published record of research productivity, and an ability to design and troubleshoot experiments.  Experience with zebrafish is required and experience with retinal progenitor cells or development is preferred.  Competitive salary and benefits are provided.  Please send CV, a cover letter describing research accomplishments and interests, and have two to three scientists who are familiar with your research send letters of recommendation to:
