OHSU

NIH T32 Vision Research Training Program

The Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Department of Ophthalmology at Casey Eye Institute is pleased to announce a training grant funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI).

  • Open to individuals with a primary interest in vision research. Previous experience in vision research is not essential.
  • Applications are welcome from post-doctoral fellows and to pre-doctoral students currently enrolled in, or eventually accepted into, a PhD program at OHSU (PMCB, NGP, or DMICE).
  • Participating faculty have a broad range of research interests, including basic, translational, clinical, and informatics-related vision science research. Applicants are encouraged to contact potential mentors to obtain more information regarding their research programs.
  • Didactic components of the training include course work completed as part of the PhD program, supplemented by a semester of additional vision-science training (also to be completed by postdoctoral trainees).

The goals are to prepare trainees in the fundamentals of vision science research, and to provide mentoring to enable trainees to become independent vision researchers.  Program will begin in Fall 2013.
