The Centre for Vision Research (CVR) at York University offers a one-week, all-expenses-paid undergraduate summer school on vision science. This year’s program will be held June 5-9, 2017.
This year’s summer school will be substantially expanded, as part of the VISTA initiative that will dramatically increase the number of faculty members and students engaging in vision research at York University in the coming years.
The program includes talks by CVR faculty members on current research topics in vision science, as well as hands-on experience in CVR laboratories. The curriculum reflects the wide range of research areas at CVR, which includes research on human visual perception, computer vision, machine learning, visual neuroscience, 3D film, immersive environments, and visual disorders.
The program accepts undergraduate students (including philosophy majors) who are interested in pursuing a career in scientific research. It is intended mainly for students who are planning to apply to graduate school in the fall of 2017, and who are interested in investigating vision science as a possible area of research. Citizens of all countries are eligible.
The program covers all transportation costs, and provides on-campus accommodations and meals.
Application instructions are available on the summer school website, www.yorku.ca/cvrss. The revised application deadline is March 1, 2017, and applicants will be notified of decisions by March 15, 2017.
