The successful candidate will work on an Innovate UK-funded project to develop and evaluate vision enhancement solutions for low vision patients.

The project is a collaboration between Aston University and the small-to-medium enterprise company Give Vision, with weekly clinical support from Moorfield’s eye hospital. The project seeks to develop the next generation of vision enhancement powered by on-the-fly image manipulation. The current prototype can be found at www.givevision.net. The successful candidate will work as part of a small team which allows for engagement in all development activities, with an emphasis on image enhancements.
