The Graduate Program in Physiological Optics and Vision Science at the University of Houston College of Optometry in Houston TX is now accepting applications for its doctoral and master of science programs for Fall 2020: http://www.opt.uh.edu/future-students-residents/programs/graduate-program/
The deadline for applications for Fall 2020 is January 30, 2020: http://www.opt.uh.edu/future-students-residents/programs/graduate-program/how-to-apply/
The Program provides students with a broad base of knowledge in the vision sciences, as well as the resources and environment for students to develop expertise in specific areas of interest in biomedical science related to vision. Students receive tuition fellowships and graduate teaching and research assistant stipends. The research infrastructure is supported by a Core Grant for Vision Research from National Eye Institute. Students will have access to extended facilities in the UH Health and Biomedical Sciences Center featuring state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories and collaborative spaces for vision scientists working together with researchers in engineering, pharmacology and natural, social and computer sciences.
Graduate students work side-by side with internationally recognized basic, clinical and translational researchers studying normal and abnormal visual systems using state-of-the-art experimental approaches:
Research areas include studies of normal and abnormal monocular and binocular vision and eye movements in animals and humans; basic and clinical research on the ocular surface and anterior segment, dry eye, inflammation and contact lenses; visual optics, including high resolution imaging of ocular structures, myopia, accommodation, metrics for evaluating the aberrated eye as in keratoconus; structure/function relations in animal models of glaucoma and in humans with diseases that affect the retina and optic nerve; molecular and cellular biology of vision, mechanisms for repair or regeneration of ocular tissues.
Educational requirements include a minimum of a B.S. degree (or equivalent) in biological or physical sciences or engineering, or optometry or medicine. The ideal candidate would have research experience in vision or related sciences.
Questions about applying or the graduate program may be sent to rrattelade at Central.UH.EDU<mailto:rrattelade at Central.UH.EDU> or call 1 (713) 743-1885.
Houston Texas offers an excellent blend of cultural and entertainment activities, including acclaimed museums, concert halls, theaters, restaurants, music venues, and professional and collegiate sports.
