How do I go about looking for a job with my PhD in vision science

This answer was rated:

How do I go about looking for a job with my PhD in vision science research. Just defended few days ago. So far i had two responses:I was overqualified with both. I need a postdoc or some administrative job where my pay isn't based on grants.

Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. I think one of the best ways to do this is, first of all, to maximize the contacts of your supervising professor with whom you worked on your Ph.D., as well as the contacts of those in your departments. After this, though...
Doctor DanB : I think the most effective thing you can do is to contact the faculty director in charge of research at the various ophthalmology residency programs throughout the country. This is probably the best way to find out what opportunities exist in the various vision research labs around the country in the most direct and quick way.

I will also be happy to answer any other questions until you have the information you need.   If you would like to ask further questions or clarification regarding anything I've said, please let me know and I will be happy to address your concerns when I return to see if you've responded.
