Vision & Movement Control Research Studentship - fully funded 3-year project

The Vision and Mobility Research Laboratory is currently seeking two
enthusiastic, self-motivated PhD students, to work on two ongoing research
projects which are supported by grants from The Health Foundation UK, and
Vicon Motion Systems Ltd. Candidates should have a good background in motor
control, biomechanics and/or vision science. The successful candidates will
join a multi-disciplinary research team which has members from the Schools
of Life Science, Health Science and Engineering Design and Technology. The
team is lead by a clinical biomechanist (Dr John Buckley) and a clinical
vision scientist (Prof David Elliott).

One PhD will investigate how central and peripheral vision is used in the
control of gait and posture. The successful candidate will be expected to
undertake their PhD within the Vision Science Research Group, School of Life

The other PhD will investigate the importance of 'online' vision in the
control of adapted gait involving, for example, stepping up or down to a new
level or over obstacles. The successful candidate will be expected to
register to undertake their PhD within the Medical Engineering Research
Group, School of Engineering Design and Technology.

Applicants should send a CV, a statement of reasons for applying for the
position, and a letter of reference to Shamim Haider at the address below.

Closing date for applications is 24th November 2006.
