PhD Position available

School of Optometry and Vision Science, UoA

This project aims to develop a method to track gaze in three-dimensional space. By building upon the latest virtual reality, mechatronics, and eye tracking technology, outcomes from this study will inform the physiology of eye movements, improve the diagnostic ability and sensitivity of eye movement testing in a clinical setting, and contribute to the development of VR technology. There is also potential to deploy knowledge gained during the PhD into population groups that are likely to show deficiencies in binocular vision, including mild cognitive impairment and traumatic brain injury. A full scholarship is on offer, covering fees and tax-free stipend of $35,000.

All applicants eligible for PhD enrolment will be considered.
