At the eye department of the University Hospital majored sports medicine in Erlangen, volunteers are searched for who would like to participate in tests on visual ability. The tests will be done with a very interesting and non-invasive way, a perceptual learning training program based on a gesture control 3D video game. The doctoral project is willing to help people, no matter how good/bad vision they are right now, to improve their visual ability, especially on the 3D stereo vision.
The participant will also get benefit while finishing the test.
“Nachwuchsakademie OFFSPRing” offers Scientific Perspectives in Reproduction
The “Nachwuchsakademie OFFSPRing – OFFering Scientific Perspectives in Reproduction” is a DFG-funded programme that supports selected young researchers in the compilation of their first full DFG proposal. The idea of the programme, coordinated and designed by a number of group leaders of DFG-funded Research Units and the Priority Programme, is based on the fruitful cooperation of their research groups in reproductive science in local and nationwide networks. Many young scientists are attracted to enter these programmes as they will be trained to perform cutting edge research in reproduction sciences. The Nachwuchsakademie aims to enable young researchers a mid- to long term perspective in reproduction science and to generate their own academic identity as well as to strengthen the field in reproductive science and to create a sustainable scientific environment. Up to twelve participants will selected for OFFSPRing.
Application criteria and process
Young scientists and clinicians who are at an early postdoc level (up to six years after their doctorate), can apply for the participation in the OFFSPRing programme by providing a full CV, list of publications and a short two to three pages draft of their pilot project by e-mail. The target group consists of young scientists/clinicians who have compiled their doctorate degrees in the field of reproductive sciences, ideally in the areas of physiology, cell biology, endocrinology or embryology. The participant should have experience in research laboratories and be familiar with common laboratory procedures and methods. Ideally participants should have performed independent experimental research projects focussing on in vitro or in vivo model systems using animals or humans. Excluded are candidates who already have obtained individual DFG grants. DFG funded fellowships are no exclusion criteria.
Deadline for applications is 15 June 2012. Successful applicants will be informed in July 2012.
