Exposure to bright light can induce widespread changes in our physiology, mood and behaviour.

The successful candidates will hold a Masters degree in a topic relevant to systems neuroscience and, ideally, have an established interest in an aspect of vision science, chronobiology or lighting design/engineering. Practical experience of acquiring and/or analysing electrophysiological data would be an advantage.
