The Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA <http://www.yorku.ca/vista>) 
program seeks applications for up to 14 Postdoctoral Awards at York 
University, Toronto, Canada. The topic of research must fall within 
VISTA’s mandate, which is to support fundamental and applied vision 
research that combines biological and computational perspectives and has 
translational potential for health, industry, or other applications.

VISTA is a program funded by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund 
<http://www.cfref-apogee.gc.ca/home-accueil-eng.aspx> that will enable 
York University, and its partners, to accelerate York’s already 
world-class vision research. VISTA involves five York faculties, seven 
research centers (including the Centre for Vision Research), and over 50 
partners in the international research community and non-academic 
sectors such as healthcare and private industry.

VISTA Fellows require a PhD or equivalent degree in a discipline 
appropriate for the VISTA program (e.g., psychology, neuroscience, 
computer science, engineering, philosophy, film, or a medical 
discipline). The PhD or equivalent degree must be completed by the start 
date, and held no longer than three years prior to expected start 
date.Applicants must be sponsored by at least one proposed supervisor 
from this list of VISTA core faculty 
<http://vista.info.yorku.ca/team/core-faculty>.Fellowships will be 
awarded competitively based on the strength of the candidate, the 
strength of the research proposal, and fit with the goals of the VISTA 
program. Up to fourteen candidates will be awarded a minimum salary of 
$55,000 CAD/year plus benefits for up to two years (with a possibility 
to reapply for an additional year) and will each receive an annual 
allowance of $7,500/year for research and $1,000/year for networking and 
meetings. For complete applications procedures, see the VISTA website 
<http://vista.info.yorku.ca/training-scholarships/postdoctoral-awards>.

Closing date for the competition: April 10, 2017 and Sept 6, 2017.

/VISTA welcomes applications from all qualified individuals, including 
individuals within the University’s employment equity categories of 
women, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities and 
aboriginal persons, individuals of diverse gender and sexual orientation 
and all groups protected by the Human Rights Code. The VISTA Team is 
committed to equity and diversity across the program, and to a positive 
and supportive environment./
