PhD in Vision Science

This year, thanks to system-wide initiatives at SUNY, training in
the graduate program has been given a new look. Fellowships at
$30,000/year will be offered to select students starting July 1,
2008. Faculty have recently been hired in areas from cell-signaling to
perception and action, and there are firm plans to hire additional
basic and clinical scientists to extend further coverage of the visual
sciences. The graduate curriculum is undergoing complete
revision in order to prepare Ph.D.s to do research as faculty in
departments of Neuroscience, Psychology, Biology, Cognitive
Science, Optometry, Medicine, or in industry. The new curriculum
provides a flexible way for talented students to focus on their
research while receiving maximum support from SUNY’s
diverse community of outstanding scientists. Students receive
foundational training in visual neuroscience, perception
and psychophysics, ocular physiology and anatomy, and
computational theory, plus expert instruction in such practical
matters as how to write scientific papers, how to get a grant, and
how to land a job.
Watch for our new website to debut this spring. For more information,
visit the current website http://www.sunyopt.edu/aca
demics/grad.shtml or email [email protected], or get in
touch directly with faculty members whose research is of interest
to you. Applicants who are interested in doing research on any
aspect of vision and have strong backgrounds in any of the
following areas are encouraged to apply: physics, neuroscience,
engineering, biology, cognition, computer science, chemistry,
psychology, mathematics, or the health sciences.
Among the architectural landmarks overlooking Manhattan’s Bryant Park is the
State University of New York, College of Optometry. This 19-story campus houses
not only SUNY’s renowned clinical facilities, but also its outstanding research labs
that are investigating the human visual system at all levels—clinical, experimental,
and theoretical/computational.

    I have been finding it extremely difficult to obtain scholarship postgraduate (MSc/MPhil or PhD) in vision science. We do not have any higher institution in Bangladesh that offers postgraduate studies in vision science. Self sponsorship is not possible considering the economic condition and exchange rate of dollar and taka in Bangladesh.

    I have been finding it extremely difficult to obtain scholarship postgraduate (MSc/MPhil or PhD) in vision science. We do not have any higher institution in Africa that offers postgraduate studies in vision science. Self sponsorship is not possible considering the economic condition and exchange rate of dollar and pound in Nigeria.
