POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSISTANT
SALARY RS1A SCALE 16,286 - 24,479 pounds sterling
A postdoctoral position funded by the Wellcome Trust is available for
two years to work on the growth and refractive development of the eye.
The person appointed will work with primates. The aims of the research
project are to discover whether eye growth compensates for optical
demand altered by the wearing of spectacles or contact lenses in
juvenile and early adult life and to explore the sensory and other
signals, particularly the role of blurring of the retinal image, in
driving the altered growth.
Applications are encouraged from postdoctoral biologists, experimental
psychologists, optometrists, ophthalmologists, physiologists or vision
scientists with an interest in vision and development.
