We now offer 15 PhD positions in Translational Vision Science for the European MARIE SKŁODOWSKA-CURIE Innovative Training Network (ITN) OptiVisT (“Optimal support of Visually impaired individuals through inclusive Tests and Tools for testing, training and augmenting functional vision”).
Are you, like us, fascinated by vision, the brain and technology and consider it important to help visually impaired people?
Do you have an inquisitive mind, and are you looking for a PhD position embedded in an international training network in which you can develop your research, technical or clinical skills?
Then consider applying with OptiVisT and join one of our 15 PhD projects.
OptiVisT is dedicated to promoting the role of women in science, and, therefore, explicitly invites women to apply.
We offer projects with a focus on
1) gaining new INSIGHTS will identify and quantify the aspects of vision that are critical for successful interaction with the environment. This will inform us about those aspects of vision that need to be tested, trained or augmented to improve daily life abilities of vision-impaired individuals;
2) designing new SOLUTIONS will apply our fundamental insights into functional vision to create tools for testing functional vision in adults, children and tools for training and augmenting functional vision; and
3) APPLICATIONS while using new tools to improve professional decision-making in three different fields: medical diagnosis, rehabilitation and athlete classification.
