musculoskeletal biomechanics:

EPSRC funded PhD studentship in Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

Bioengineering Unit, Faculty of Engineering, University of Strathclyde,

Applications are invited for a three-year PhD studentship on the modelling
of musculoskeletal systems. The standard EPSRC stipend of 10,500 for the
first year, increasing to 12,300 for the third year as well as payment of
full tuition fees are available for those with the required UK connection.
EU students may receive fees only and overseas candidates would not receive

The primary aim of the PhD project will be to investigate the strategies
used by the body to distribute loading to the muscles of the lower limb
during a range of functional activities. The project will require the
generation of computer programmes to interpret motion and force data. The
project will involve testing of subjects with various pathologies.

The starting date is expected to be between 1 November 2004 and 31 December

Ideally, the candidate should be a graduate in mechanical engineering or a
related discipline (for example, engineering computing or physics).
Biomechanics knowledge is desirable, but not essential. To be eligible, the
candidate should have at least a 2:1 degree and meet EPSRC residency

In the first instance you are encouraged to make informal enquiries about
the research project to:
