Postdoctoral Positions at SKERI

The Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute announces the availability of postdoctoral fellowships.  Smith-Kettlewell is a non-profit, independent research institute in San Francisco, California historically dedicated to basic and clinical research in human vision  with an emphasis on strabismus and its associated sensory and motor conditions, and on visual rehabilitation.  The fellowships are open to any field of visual neuroscience, oculomotor control and low-vision/blindness rehabilitation. Translational or clinically relevant aspects of these topics are particularly sought after. Details of the research interests of individual preceptors are listed below. The fellowships require a doctoral degree and are normally awarded for two years, with our most successful fellows often being invited to continue as sponsored investigators. Applications from individuals with disabilities or other underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged.

Applications will be accepted until June 1, 2015. Details of the program and application procedures can be found at To apply, please contact one of the preceptors to discuss and develop a research application. If you have further questions, please email Dr. Preeti Verghese at
