Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities

The Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute announces the opening of an exciting opportunity to apply for 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. 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 to apply.

Applications will be accepted until January 15, 2020. Details of the program and application procedures can be found at To apply, please contact one of the mentors to discuss and develop a research application. If you have further questions, please email Dr. Preeti Verghese at
