Postdoctoral Position in Translational Vision Science at UMN
A postdoctoral position is available to develop and test novel assistive
technology for people with age-related macular degeneration. The
NIH-funded project at The University of Minnesota is a collaboration
between the labs of Dr.s Stephen Engel (engellab.psych.umn.edu) and
Gordon Legge (gellab.psych.umn.edu), and The Department of Ophthalmology
and Vision Sciences. The technology uses eye-tracking to manipulate text
in real time to improve reading. The research includes both basic
science and translational components, aiming to improve the technology
and understand the limits of reading performance.
Requirements include skill in programming vision experiments; experience
with eye tracking, virtual reality, and/or testing of reading is a plus.
The initial appointment would be for 1 year, with renewal opportunities
for several additional years. Start date is summer to early fall of
2020, negotiable. Salary is at NIH rates.
The position also provides opportunity to develop additional
collaborations with the large and highly collaborative Vision Science
community at The University of Minnesota. Vision research spans the
departments of Psychology, Ophthalmology, Neurobiology, and The Center
for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, as well as the interdisciplinary Center
for Applied and Translational Sensory Sciences (http://catss.umn.edu),
which will house the project.
