PhD Scholarship Notice

Biomechanics of Impact Injury


Two APAIs are available for PhD candidates to
undertake research as part of an Australian
Research Council funded Linkage Project on the
performance of pedal and motor cycle
helmets. Partners are the NRMA, the NRMA-ACT
Road Safety Trust, ATSB, TAC and DVE. The study
involves a prospective study of pedal and motor
cycle accidents, accident reconstruction,
biomechanical analysis of impacts and helmet
performance using experimental and numerical
methods, and injury analysis. Therefore, an
interest and background in one or more related
areas is essential. Suitable applicants will
have at least a 4yr degree with honours 2,1 or
equivalent (eg. Masters degree) in engineering or
science and be Australian residents. The
candidate will be enrolled full time in a PhD in
the School of Safety Science at UNSW. The School
will offer a top up scholarship.

Candidates must be Australian residents

Commencement Date ASAP
