    quality of life, or epidemiology, would be particularly welcome.
    Candidates will be encouraged to participate in the development of
    state-of-the-art visual simulations, fundus imaging and eye movement
    recording laboratories. Exciting opportunities will exist to develop
    cross-disciplinary collaborations that will build towards an
    integrated approach to function and rehabilitation in a stimulating
    environment for clinical and academic vision research. Superb new
    laboratory space is available.
