In particular, we are exploring the mechanisms responsible for visual suppression in a disease that affects children called strabismus (crossed eyes). The candidate will work closely with all laboratory members in various aspects of research, including training of monkeys for experiments, analysis of data, planning of experiments, histological processing of tissues, provision of technical support, ordering of supplies and maintaining laboratory inventory, and general oversight of laboratory operations and organization. The laboratory is located at the Parnassus Campus of the University of California, San Francisco. Candidates should have a minimum of a bachelors degree; a background in science, engineering, or computers is preferred. This position is suitable for recently graduated college students who wish to gain laboratory experience before entering graduate or medical school, or others who are early in their career. Salary will be contingent on qualifications and experience. Interested applicants should email a personal letter of introduction, including an outline of career goals and reason for interest in this position, along with a CV.
