Welcome to Biovision Lab website

Think about how much you rely on vision for all your daily activities in a seemingly effortless way… Now, think about what would happen if you were losing some visual capacity... It is the daily life of 253 million people being visually impaired, with a pathology that cannot be cured. What used to be enjoyable, effortless activities now require thought, preparation and a lot of adjustments.

Now recruiting! Join us in building a more accessible world: The Biovision Lab is recruiting candidates to join our dynamic, multi-disciplinary research team, which primary goal is to study vision impairment from theoretical and applied perspectives. You will be based in Sophia-Antipolis on the French Riviera, in the Inria Research center. Funding opportunities will be available to pursue as a Ph.D. student, including support for fellowships abroad through our international network.

Biovision Lab is located in the Inria Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée Research Centre in the south of France, between Nice and Cannes.
