PhD Studentship in Biomechanical Modelling

Departments of Musculoskeletal Surgery and Bioengineering

Imperial College London

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship provided by British
International Rowing and the Henley Stewards Charitable Trust in
biomechanical modelling of rowing. The project will be jointly
supervised by Dr Alison McGregor of the Department of Musculoskeletal
Surgery and Dr Anthony Bull and Professor Bob Schroter of the
Bioengineering Department. These departments have both received the
highest research rating (5*) in the most recent Research Assessment
Exercise.

The BioDynamics Research Group at Imperial College has been
investigating aspects of back pain, performance and injury of rowers.
This project has reached an advanced stage with specialised
instrumentation and data acquisition systems. This study will apply
mathematical modelling techniques to investigate the effect of rowing
technique and equipment on lower back pain. The student should have a
first class or upper second class degree in Engineering, Physics or
Mathematics.

A stipend and fees will be awarded. Students must satisfy the
eligibility criteria, including UK or EU residence for three or more
years. For further details of the post please contact Dr Anthony Bull on
020 7594 5186.

The studentship is available with immediate effect and applicants should
register their interest by sending an up-to-date curriculum vitae to Dr
Anthony Bull at a.bull@imperial.ac.uk , and by submitting an application
form (which can be downloaded from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/pgoptions
).

Closing date: 29 October 2004
Valuing diversity and committed to equality of opportunity
