A fully-funded postdoctoral fellowship is available in the laboratory of Jeffrey Goldberg, MD, PhD in the Department of Ophthalmology, Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg is Professor and Chair of Ophthalmology at the Byers Eye Institute.
Why do cells in the eye and neurons in the central nervous system (CNS) fail to survive and regenerate after injury? Using primarily the retina and optic nerve as a model system our lab investigates why mature, central nervous system neurons fail to regenerate after injury, and how this failure depends on the regulation of gene expression and cellular signaling, during development and in the adult. Our research is directed at neuroprotection and regeneration of retinal ganglion cells and the optic nerve, a major unmet need in glaucoma and other optic neuropathies.
Core duties:
Multiple postdoctoral fellowships are available; generally graduate experience in eye, stem cell, molecular signaling, or neuroscience research is the best initial preparation.
Primary Location: 
Our laboratory is located in the Stanford Research Park (SRP). We are surrounded by other Stanford School of Medicine research labs, startups, R&D companies, and research facilities for companies like Tesla, SAP, HP, and Nest.

Required Qualifications: 
  • PhD with experience in regenerative neuroscience research
  • Successful experience during graduate school (e.g. with publications and presentations) is required
Required Application Materials: 
  • One-page statement of research accomplishments and interests
  • Contact information for 3 professional references
