Postdoctoral Research Fellowships

Thank you for your interest in a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute. We invite you to contact any of the faculty below to indicate your interest and start the application process. General information about benefits and other policies for research fellows is available from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Fellows at Wilmer have the opportunity to collaborate on research projects at the forefront of ophthalmology and receive mentoring from experts in their fields. The Wilmer Eye Institute Research Discussions, a seminar series organized by and for postdoctoral fellows, and the Wilmer Research Meeting, an annual event for faculty, fellows and students, provide opportunities for fellows to present their projects and receive feedback. Fellows also participate in FARM, a monthly seminar series where faculty present their research, and the Wilmer Science Seminar Series, a monthly event featuring speakers from outside of Wilmer.
