 Funded by the United States Department of Education, National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR).

The National Research and Training Center on Blindness and Low Vision (NRTC) is located in the historic Industrial Education Building on the campus of Mississippi State University. The NRTC is the only U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-funded center focused on employment outcomes of persons with blindness or low vision. In October 2016, the NRTC marked its 35-year anniversary as a center for applied research focusing on this population. For a brief history of the research and training conducted at the NRTC during its first 30 years (1981-2010), please click here. When job oppurtunities become available, they will be listed on this page.
