We are pleased to announce a new interdisciplinary training program in Vision Science & Applications, offered by members of the Centre for Vision Research (CVR), York University, Toronto, Canada. The program is accepting applications at the Master’s, PhD and Postdoctoral levels.
Made possible by an NSERC Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) grant, this new program provides specialized training in vision science research as well as opportunities for cross-disciplinary training, international experience and collaboration with industry in a range of application areas, including:
Interested applicants should contact one of the program mentors directly. Master’s and PhD Applicants must also apply through one of the participating graduate program at York University: Biology, Computer Science & Engineering, Kinesiology or Psychology. Applications may in some cases be considered beyond the graduate program deadline.
Both Canadian and International applicants are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants will be fully funded.

The goal is to provide training in a number of dimensions in a relatively active way. The dimensions we want to explore are those that the stuendts may not visit through their regular academic work, but which could be equally important for their career. We have invited a number of distinguished guests from the Canadian science and innovation community to lead specific workshops. Please see the Program Schedule. You can download the collection of slides here.
The CVR at York University is an international leader in human and machine vision research. Uniting researchers from psychology, computer science & engineering, biology and kinesiology & health science, work at the centre is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, rooted in a fundamental research program that merges techniques in human psychophysics, visual neuroscience and computational theory. Leading-edge facilities include a 3T fMRI scanner, a six-sided immersive virtual reality room, and a wide array of visuo-robotic platforms. For more information: cvr.yorku.ca.
