  PhD in vision sciences: Exploring the relationship between visual pigment kinetics and age related macular degeneration and pathology
  Dr A Wood
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using technology more usually found in the field of astronomy, we have developed a ground-breaking functional imaging technique known as Imaging Retinal Densitometry (IRD) that can probe outer retinal function in unprecedented detail.
  The eyes have it: fetal reactions to visual stimulation
  Dr N Reissland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The womb is not entirely dark and hence fetuses can perceive light. It is not clear what fetuses might be able to perceive and in what detail they might be able to “see” which has implications for cognitive development.
  Measuring Visual Sensitivity to Emotional Facial Expressions in Health and Disease
  Dr A Logan, Dr U Shahani, Prof G Loffler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19031. Humans tend to leak emotion through facial expressions. A brief glimpse of a face is often sufficient to determine that an individual is feeling happy, sad, angry or surprised.
  Using novel technologies to improve visual performance in Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  Dr S Jeon, Dr L Sweeney, Prof N Strang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19029. The prevalence of age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is increasing in the UK; leading to large numbers of older people having difficulty with tasks such as reading and recognising faces.
  Spatial statistical methods and machine learning for analysis of retinal images of optic disc
  Dr G Czanner, Dr S Czanner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Automated disease diagnosis using medical imaging data is an increasingly important problem. For example, colour retinal images are used to detect glaucoma - a major cause of blindness.
  Doctoral candidate specializing in physics
  Prof R Macdonald
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is the National Metrology Institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with scientific and technical service tasks.
  Novel approaches for the treatment of dry eye disease
  Dr J Gabhann, Prof C Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation is a key unifying factor for a range of ocular surface inflammatory diseases including autoimmune mediated dry eye disease (DED) and complications with corneal transplantation (CT).
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
  Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours
  Dr T Brown, Dr D Bechtold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.
  Generation of transplant tissue following correction of patient stem cells by genomic engineering
  Dr F Manson, Dr RL Taylor, Dr A Adamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of retinal degenerations result from mutations in genes expressed in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) which lies under the photoreceptors.
  Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration
  Prof R Lucas, Dr Nina Milosavljevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
  Investigating a reading test as a measure of the efficacy of ocular lubricant treatment in individuals with dry eye disease
  Prof C Dickinson, Prof R Harper, Prof F Carley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The front surface of the eye is covered by a thin layer of tears to lubricate it, to help avoid infection, and to create a precise optical surface to help with the formation of clear images on the back of the eye.
  Wellcome Trust 4-year Programme in Optical Biology at UCL

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for places on the Wellcome Trust 4-year Programme in Optical Biology at UCL. Optical Biology is an interdisciplinary field that involves developing new optical technology for studying the interaction of light (i.e.
