Postdoctoral position in the Department of Ophthalmology and Hansen Experimental Physics Laboratory at Stanford University on restoration of sight using transplantation of photoreceptors and photovoltaic retinal prosthesis. Job Description: The group of Prof. Daniel Palanker at Stanford University is inviting applicants for a postdoctoral fellowship to work on several approaches to restoration of sight in rodent models of retinal degeneration. One approach involves transplantation of photoreceptors, and the other – photovoltaic subretinal prosthesis. Experiments related to both approaches are already ongoing, animal models are available, and results are very encouraging. Both approaches involve subretinal implantation, electrophysiology (ERG and VEP), and behavioral experiments. We are looking for a person trained in retinal biology to join the group. The successful candidate should have a background in the following areas: retinal biology, electrophysiology, immunohistochemistry. Candidates need to have, or be in the final stages of completing, a Ph.D degree. To apply, send a letter indicating your qualifications, current C.V. with educational background, research experience, and publications. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
