Two PhD student positions are open at the “Laboratorio de Optica” at 
University of Murcia, Spain (http://lo.um.es) within the ACTIVA project, 
“Advanced Customized Technologies for Intact Vision in Ageing”, funded 
by EC MSCA Doctoral Network (www.kth.se/activa). ACTIVA provides 
international training at the interface of physics, optics and medicine 
to develop novel techniques facilitating intact vision with age. The PhD 
students should have a background in applied physics, optical 
engineering, vision science, electrical engineering, or a related 
discipline relevant for the project.

There are two separate work packages where each fellow will join: ​
- “Using infrared pulsed light as a diagnosis tool"
- “Wearable opto-electronic devices for vision correction”​

Required qualifications and experience:
- MSc degree in optics, physics, electrical engineering or
related topic.
- Previous work experience in experimental and instrumental optics will 
be useful.
- Previous experience in optical design and modeling will be an asset.
- Spanish language is NOT required.

The EU provides 36 months of support with a highly competitive salary.
The candidate will have the opportunity to interact with other 
researcher in the "Laboratorio de Optica"  and the MSCA Network as well 
as participate in international conferences.
