    The Institute of Ophthalmology, University College London is seeking
    to recruit an outstanding investigator to work in the Division of
    Visual Science. The Institute of Ophthalmology, which received a 5*
    in the last Research Assessment Exercise, has a distinguished record
    of achievement and scholarship. The Division, which is undergoing a
    major expansion of expertise, space, and equipment, is concerned with
    basic research in visual psychophysics and in developing applications
    to vision rehabilitation.

    Successful candidates will be highly motivated vision scientists
    currently working in any area of visual psychophysics. Areas of
    special interest include eye movements, image enhancement and
    understanding, and the psychophysics of reading and other everyday
    tasks. The successful candidate for this post will be encouraged, in
    addition to pursuing their core research, to take a special interest
    in the application of psychophysics to clinical problems related to
    vision impairment. The successful candidate for the post will be
    encouraged to participate in the development of new eye movement
    recording,, fundus imaging, and visual simulation laboratories.
    Exciting opportunities will exist to develop cross-disciplinary
    collaborations that will build towards an integrated approach to
    visual function and rehabilitation in a stimulating environment for
    clinical and academic vision research. Superb new laboratory space is

    Preliminary enquires should be made to the Head of the Department of
    Visual Rehabilitation Research and holder of the Helen Keller Chair,
    Professor Gary S. Rubin (; tel 020 7608 6989), or
    the Institute Director, Professor Adam Sillito (ams.admin;
    tel 020 7608 6805). Formal applications should include a full CV,
    research proposal, and the names of three referees, and should be
    sent to the Director, Professor Adam Sillito, at the Institute of

    The Institute operates a no-smoking policy.
