    EPSRC funded project to study “Limits of functional, diffraction-
    limited vision”

    A well motivated PhD student with a good academic record is
    sought to study the “Limits of
    functional, diffraction-limited vision with emphasis on development
    of novel instrumentation and
    techniques to separate the effects of scattered light and
    aberrations”. The aim of the project is to
    develop and validate novel techniques for rapid objective
    measurement of the scatter function of the
    eye with emphasis on separating the effects of scattered light and

    A number of psychophysical studies of visual performance will also
    be carried out using a new
    adaptive optics system constructed for this work. The successful
    applicant will join another PhD
    student and will be working in a team that includes John Barbur,
    Chris Dainty, Chris Hull and Luis
    Santana Haro.

    The clinical, psychophysical studies will also involve Michael
    Morgan, Manfred Fahle and Roger
    Buckley. The project provides skilled technical support with
    development of optical instrumentation
    and specialised programming. The position is open to a graduate
    with a good background in a scientific
    or engineering discipline. Interest or experience in retinal imaging,
    adaptive optics and / or the
    measurement of scattered light in the eye would be a distinct
    advantage. The position is available from
    1st October for three years.
