York CVR Vision Science Summer School

The Centre for Vision Research (CVR) at York University offers a one- 
week, all-expenses-paid undergraduate summer school on the topic of  
vision science.  This year's program will be held from May 31 to June  
6, 2009.

The program includes talks by CVR faculty members on current research  
topics in vision science, as well as hands-on projects in CVR  
laboratories.  The curriculum reflects the wide range of research  
areas at CVR, which includes basic research on vision in humans and  
animals, covering both neuroscience and behaviour, as well as applied  
topics such as computer vision, virtual reality, visual perception in  
low-gravity environments, and vision in clinical populations.  For an  
idea of the topics to be covered, see last year's schedule at www.yorku.ca/cvrss/schedule2008.pdf 
.

The program will accept 24 undergraduate students who are interested  
in pursuing a career in scientific research.  It is intended mainly  
for students who are planning to apply to graduate school in the fall  
of 2009, and who are interested in investigating vision science as a  
possible area of research.  Both Canadian and international students  
are encouraged to apply.

The program provides on-campus accommodations, breakfast and lunch  
each day, a closing banquet, and reimbursement for transportation costs.

Application instructions are available on the summer school website, www.yorku.ca/cvrss 
.  The application deadline is February 1, 2009, and applicants will  
be notified of decisions by March 1, 2009.

For further information, see the summer school website, www.yorku.ca/cvrss 
, or write to Dr. Richard Murray (rfm at yorku.ca) or Dr. Jennifer  
Steeves (steeves at yorku.ca).

This program is funded by NSERC and York University.
