Job Opportunity: VISTA Postdoctoral Fellowships, York University

Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA) is a collaborative program at York University funded by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund that builds on York’s world-leading interdisciplinary expertise in biological and computer vision. In collaboration with over 50 academic, public, and for-profit partners from around the world, VISTA will propel Canada as a global leader in the vision sciences by integrating visual neuroscience with computer vision to drive innovation.

The central scientific question that drives VISTA is ‘How can neural and/or machine systems be integrated to provide adaptive visual behavior in real-world conditions’. Answering this question will provide fundamental advances to vision science and exciting, widespread applications for visual health and technologies. Our overarching aim is to advance visual science through research that spans computational and biological perspectives and results in real-world applications.

VISTA will support interdisciplinary training programs across its core fields and will support training opportunities with partners in industry and public service that will enhance the postdoctoral experience. Funding is available for up to two years.

Fellowship and Distinguished Fellowship postdoctoral awards are available. A Ph.D. or equivalent degree must be completed by the start date of the program. Following review of the eligibility criteria, and confirmation of a VISTA core member supervisor, applicants should submit their application to applyvista@yorku.ca by the application deadline.

Application Deadline: April 16, 2018.  Please visit the the VISTA website for full details and eligibility information.
