PhD Scholarship in Rehabilitation Engineering and Neuromechanics at UQ in Australia 2021

The University of Queensland in Australia 2021 offers a PhD scholarship in Rehabilitation Engineering and Neuromechanics in the 2021/22 academic session.

A PhD position is available in the field of rehabilitation engineering and the neuromechanics.

The goal of our recently founded Medical Robotics and Neuromechanics research group at the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering is to promote better rehabilitation outcomes following neurological injury or disease, and other musculoskeletal disabilities, through technological innovations.

Several projects are available at the interface of robotics, wearable sensors, augmented reality and multi-level neuro-mechanical modelling. Candidates with track record in these areas are encouraged to apply.
