The Institute of Ophthalmology at University College London, in
affiliation with Moorfields Eye Hospital, has made a major commitment
towards the development of a new Department of Vision Rehabilitation
Research. The commitment takes the form of dedicated laboratory space
and support staff, state-of-the-art equipment, and the enthusiastic
collaboration of researchers and clinicians throughout the Institute
and Hospital. We are currently recruiting for a new Lecturer's
position that we hope to fill by the beginning of the 2000-2001
