Laboratory for Visual Neuroscience
Department of Ophthalmology
Jonathan C. Horton, MD, PhD

Open Lab Position

Position available for a post-doctoral fellow or research specialist in a Neuroscience laboratory funded by the National Eye Institute engaged in studies of visual function in alert behaving macaques with experimental strabismus and in human subjects with naturally occurring exotropia. The main goal of our research is to understand the neural adaptations that occur in primates with ocular misalignment. We are especially interested in the mechanism of visual suppression, which prevents diplopia, and in how the oculomotor system controls which eye acquires visual targets. This position will involve working closely with all laboratory members in every aspect of research, including planning of experiments, studies in humans with strabismus, electrophysiological recordings in strabismic monkeys, analysis of electrophysiological data, and neuroanatomical work. The laboratory is located in the Beckman Vision Center at the University of California, San Francisco. Candidates should have a PhD; salary is contingent on qualifications and experience. Interested applicants should email a letter of introduction and a CV to Jonathan C. Horton MD, PhD, Program in Neuroscience, Beckman Vision Center, UCSF (hortonj@vision.ucsf.edu).
