A PhD studentship to work on a project on colour vision deficiencies and education, is available at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK.

The successful applicant will perform quantitative analyses of colours used in educational materials, assess the effects that CVDs have on academic attainment, and test whether new colour enhancement tools, such as colour-enhancing filters and computer software manipulations can help pupils with CVD in school environments and in real world tasks.

The student will work within Anglia Vision Research - a stimulating, coherent research group in the Department of Vision and Hearing Sciences, Faculty of Science & Technology.  We consist of academic staff with a wealth of international experience in research, research training and teaching in optometry and vision sciences.

The project will involve testing of colour vision in children, as well as quantitative analyses of data.  Applicants should have a strong interest in vision science, excellent quantitative skills and knowledge of, or a keen willingness to learn programming in Matlab.  Past experience in the testing of vision will also be desirable.  The studentship is open to full-time UK/EU applicants.  Successful applicants will benefit from a fee waiver and a stipend/bursary at Research Councils UK (RCUK) level.
