PhD studentship in Novel Retinal Imaging Technology

Start date: between April 2010 and October 2010

Stipend: £15,290 p.a. + fees (UK/EU students)

A 3-year PhD studentship is available at the multi-disciplinary  
Wellcome Laboratories for Vision Sciences in the Department of  
Optometry and Visual Science, City University London, UK. The  
studentship is part of a new EPSRC-funded project looking at  
developing novel retinal imaging techniques. Imaging the human retina  
plays a prominent role in diagnosing eye disease, and early diagnosis  
is key to saving sight. Current retinal imaging technology falls  
either in the inexpensive but low resolution category, or in the  
complex, high resolution and expensive one. This project seeks to fill  
the gap by developing a technique based on a simple optical  
architecture that still has the possibility to obtain high-resolution  
retinal images useful for high-end disease diagnosis.

The student will work on developing both theoretical and practical  
aspects of the technique and should have a background in physics,  
optics, engineering or related topic. A first class or upper second  
degree, MSc or equivalent is required. The position is available to  
start October 2010 (or earlier)

The studentship covers tuition fees (UK/EU students) and a stipend of  
£15,290 per annum.
