Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Microglial Research

A postdoctoral position is available in the Section on Neuronal-Glial Interactions in Retinal Disease, National Eye Institute (NEI), Laboratory of Retinal Cell and Molecular Branch, National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, USA, to study the interaction of microglia with different retinal cell types that underlie retinal diseases.

Some of our current research interests focus on (1) understanding the physiology of resident immune cells in the retina and examining how they interact with retinal cells such as neurons, RPE cells, and supporting macroglia, (2) the impact of aging of microglial physiology, and (3) translation research into retinal microglia as a therapeutic target for retinal diseases. A description of our research projects and a listing of our recent publications can be found at: .


Successful candidates should have: (1) Ph.D. training in experimental (bench) science, preferably in neuroscience, cell biology, or vision research, (2) a productive publication record, and (3) an interest in basic and translational research in the vision sciences. Self-motivated and creative applicants interested in how neuroscience interacts with immunology with regards to vision research are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be within 5 years of having obtained their doctorate degree.


The position provides generous scientific resources and stipend support. Applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. US citizens, U.S. permanent residents, and non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply.


To apply, please send a curriculum vitae, bibliography, and three letters of reference via e-mail or post to:
