If you are interested in joining the lab, please Dr. Hulleman .

Postdoctoral training

There is an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research fellow in the laboratory of John D. Hulleman, Ph.D. in the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) Medical Center. The Hulleman Laboratory is committed to understanding the underlying causes of inherited and idiopathic retinal disorders and developing novel therapies for them.

Under the auspices of a recently-awarded Research to Prevent Blindness Career Development Award, the successful candidate who fills this position will apply chemical biology and functional genomics techniques to develop new approaches for controlling the cellular oxidative stress response. These approaches will ultimately be applied towards the treatment of age-related macular degeneration, which is a leading cause of blindness in the elderly. The candidate must be highly motivated, hardworking and proficient in conventional molecular biology and biochemistry skills, protein analysis and cell culture techniques.  The benefits of performing postdoctoral research at UTSW can be found on the UTSW Graduate School website.

If interested, please your resume to Dr. Hulleman.  

Graduate student training

We are always looking for motivated and excited graduate students who want to do cutting-edge research in ophthalmology. Dr. Hulleman is affiliated with the Biological Chemistry Graduate Program.

Medical student training

The Hulleman lab openly receives applications from medical students who are interested in performing basic research in ophthalmology. Medical students are encouraged to apply for the Summer Research Program through UTSW. Medical students in the lab work on their own unique projects and are expected to ultimately publish their work. 

We are especially interested in students who are willing to take a year off from medical school and dedicate their time towards performing research as a Dean’s Research Scholar or pursue an M.D. with Distinction in Research. Additionally, in the past, medical students joining the laboratory have been competitive for prestegious fellowships like the Research to Prevent Blindness Medical Student Eye Research Fellowship.
