Schepens Eye Research Institute, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, has
an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Vision Rehabilitation to work with
Dr Alex Bowers and Dr Eli Peli. The overall goal of the project is to
improve rehabilitation strategies for hemianopia and spatial neglect, two of
the main visual-perceptual consequences of severe traumatic brain injury
(TBI) and stroke. The impact on functional performance of optical
(prismatic) interventions combined with perceptual-motor training and other
training modalities will be evaluated in real and virtual environments
(including a driving simulator and a walking simulator).
The ideal candidate will have completed (or be about to complete) their PhD,
will have a strong background in clinical vision science, rehabilitation
research or visual psychophysics, experience of using virtual environments
as an assessment tool, experience with eye movement research and a keen
interest in working with people with cognitive and vision impairments.
The position is initially available for 1 year with the possibility of an
extension for another 2 years. Start date is Winter 2010, with some
Applications should be sent by email (in pdf format) to Alex Bowers
(alex.bowers at schepens.harvard.edu) and should include a CV, publication
list, brief statement of research interests and career goals, the expected
date of availability, and contact information for at least 2 referees.
