Please post widely where undergraduates might see this announcement and encourage your students to consider applying.


The Centre for Vision Research <https://cvr.yorku.ca/> at York University<https://www.yorku.ca/> in Toronto, Canada offers a one-week undergraduate summer school on vision science in cooperation with the Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA<vista.info.yorku.ca>)  initiative.

After disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2023 program will be returning to an expenses-paid, in-person event. This year's program will be held July 10-14, 2023.

The program includes talks by CVR faculty members on current research topics in vision science, as well as hands-on experience in CVR laboratories. The curriculum reflects the wide range of research areas at CVR, which includes research on human visual perception, computer vision, machine learning, visual neuroscience, digital media, immersive environments, and visual disorders.

The program accepts undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in scientific research. It is intended mainly for students who are planning to apply to graduate school in the fall of 2023 (for entry in fall 2024), and who are interested in investigating vision science as an area of research. Citizens of all countries are eligible.

Application instructions are available on the CVR summer school website (https://www.yorku.ca/cvr/summer-school/ ).  We are accepting applications from now until the revised application deadline of March 3, 2023. Applicants will be notified of decisions by mid-March. We expect to accept between 30 and 40 students.

Summer Research internships

Faculty members in the Centre for Vision Research <https://cvr.yorku.ca/>  also sponsor undergraduate students in several competitive summer internship programs funded by the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council NSERC<https://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/Students-Etudiants/UG-PC/USRA-BRPC_eng.asp>, other government agencies or through internal summer internship programs. With supervisor consent, summer research interns are invited to participate in the Summer School as part of their internship. Please contact faculty members for details on opportunities in their laboratories. Deadlines vary but be aware many are quite soon (e.g., the Lassonde School of Engineering<https://lassonde.yorku.ca/research/lura-and-usra-research-at-lassonde> and Faculty of Science <https://www.yorku.ca/science/nserc-usra-enura-summer-2023/>  have deadlines very soon)
