The Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA) program seeks applications 
for up to 4 Postdoctoral Fellowships 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 in a discipline appropriate for the VISTA 
program (e.g., psychology, neuroscience, computer science, engineering, 
philosophy, film, or a medical discipline). The PhD must be completed by 
the start date, and held no longer than three years prior to the 
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/vista-researchers/).**_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 four 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 application procedures, see the VISTA website 

Closing date for the competition: *September 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./
