A postdoctoral position is available in an NIH-funded project that uses 
eye-tracking to manipulate text in real time to improve reading in 
people with macular degeneration. The project provides opportunities for 
both basic science that seeks to understand the limits of reading 
performance and translational work that aims to develop the assistive 
technology. Position requirements include some skill in programming 
vision experiments; experience with eye tracking, virtual reality, 
and/or testing of reading is a plus. Start date is flexible, and the 
position is open to both US citizens and foreign nationals. The position 
also provides opportunity to develop additional collaborations with the  
Vision Science community at The University of Minnesota, which spans 
Psychology, Ophthalmology, Neurobiology, The Center for Magnetic 
Resonance Research (www.cmrr.umn.edu), and the interdisciplinary Center 
for Applied and Translational Sensory Sciences (catss.umn.edu), which 
will house the project.

representation in the field, and encourage people from all backgrounds 
to apply.
