Veterinary College (U of London), here are some new PhD scholarships (for
UK/EU residents) just advertised online at:


Titles most relevant to biomechanists include (supervisors in brackets):
1. Relationships of foot anatomy, impact mechanics, and pathogenesis in
large mammals (John Hutchinson et al.)

2. 3D computer animations for improved recognition of movement asymmetry in
horses (Thilo Pfau and Prof. Stephen May)

3. Neural control of insect locomotion on soft surfaces (Andrew Spence et

Deadline for applications is 13th February 2009.

Interview Dates are 9th March 2009 (Hawkshead Campus) and 11th March 2009
