15 PhD positions in Translational Vision Science 355 views

The University of Groningen is inviting application for 15 PhD positions in Translational Vision Science for the European MARIE SKŁODOWSKA-CURIE Innovative Training Network (ITN) OptiVisT. OptiVisT aims to resolve this by (1) gaining new Insights: i.e. a fundamental understanding of the visual demands of activities of daily living and sports; (2) developing Solutions: i.e. creating new objective, inclusive and engaging tools for testing, training and augmenting functional vision; and (3) the Application of 1 and 2: evaluating the effectiveness of our new tools in diagnostics, rehabilitation and classification in practice.

OptiVisT offers three types of projects:

  1. Projects with a focus on 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. Projects with a focus on designing new SOLUTIONS will apply our fundamental insights into functional vision to create tools for testing functional vision in a) adults, b) children and c) tools for training and augmenting functional vision.
  3. Projects with a focus on APPLICATIONS will use our new tools to improve professional decision-making in three different fields: medical diagnosis, rehabilitation and athlete classification.


  • Applicant must have a strong interest in vision (psychophysics, eye-tracking, VR, non-invasive electrophysiology, neurological and ophthalmic disorders), computational approaches to vision science, deep learning and/or biologically motivated computer vision.
  • Applicant must have passionate about doing research and have or be willing to develop the skills to communicate this passion with other scientists and the general public.
  • Applicant must have relevant skills and experiences, and a strong interest in both theoretical and applied science.
  • Applicant must hold a M.Sc (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline (which can be, but is not limited to, biology, experimental and clinical psychology, medicine, physics, movement sciences, artificial intelligence, computer science, mathematics).
