Research Fellow
One year appointment.

The Department invites applications for the position of  post-doctoral research fellow to work on our antimyopia project. The candidate should have a first degree in Optometry and a PhD in a relevant area. The position requires experience of research in the field of myopia, and expertise at measuring and analysing the optical properties of the mammalian eye. Programming skills for visual display units would be an advantage, as would experience with psychophysical research.

You will join a team of 5 academic staff, led by Prof. Daniel O'Leary and Prof. Shahina Pardhan and 2 postgraduate students who are working on the antimyopia project in collaboration with teams in  the Vision Co-operative Research Centre at the University of New South Wales, The University of Houston, and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. Our brief is to better understand the origins of myopia in humans so we can move towards a preventative treatment. 

The appointment is initially for 12 months, although there are excellent prospects for funding to be extended to 3 years.
