The Ou laboratory at the University of California, San Francisco is recruiting a highly motivated and creative scientist to join our team as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar. Our group is interested in studying the early mechanisms underlying retinal ganglion cell degeneration and circuit remodeling in glaucoma. Our approach takes advantage of mouse models of experimental glaucoma, biolistic transfection of cells, microscopy, electrophysiology, and molecular and cellular biology. Highly motivated candidates with a solid record of productivity and a neuroscience background or related fields are sought. Prior experience with mouse models, confocal imaging, electrophysiology, molecular and cellular neurobiology, and programming are desired. Responsibilities include designing and conducting experiments, analyzing data, preparing and presenting research findings at meetings, helping write scientific manuscripts, and applying for fellowships/grants. The successful candidate will have a recent MD, PhD, or MD/PhD (or equivalent) degree, solid publication record, exemplary written/verbal English communication skills, strong organizational skills, and the ability to work independently. The research environment at UCSF is robust and collaborative, with a strong vision science group in the Department of Ophthalmology within a diverse neuroscience community. The Department also recently launched a postdoctoral fellow training program focused on mentorship, networking, and recognition. Duration: Minimum of 2 years with advancement to the second year dependent upon satisfactory progress during the first year. The appointment may be extended beyond 2 years contingent on funding and satisfactory performance. Please send CV, a statement of research experience, a statement of career goals, and contact information for three references (including phone number and email address).
