    PhD STUDENTSHIP IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

    Academic Biomedical Engineering Research Group

    UNIVERSITY OF BOURNEMOUTH
    and
    SALISBURY DISTRICT HOSPITAL

    Following neurological damage, such as stroke and multiple sclerosis,
    many patients are left with some degree of movement disability. This
    work aims to study the electrical activity in muscles during walking and
    use these to characterise walking patterns in these patients.

    The project requires the development and implementation of hardware and
    software tools to measure, record and analyse movement and muscle
    activity. The system must be reliable and robust enough for use by
    patients and clinical staff in a hospital setting. The project requires
    the student to obtain a good understanding of impaired and unimpaired
    walking and will therefore involve working directly with patients and
    physiotherapists.

    The post holder will follow a structured training programme both at the
    university and the hospital to develop engineering skills and research
    methods. Clinical experience in other aspects of biomedical engineering
    will be provided as part requirement of taking this opportunity further
    into professional registration.

    The successful post holder should have, or expect to graduate with, a
    good honours (class 1 or 2i) degree in engineering, preferably
    electronics but certainly demonstrating completion of electronic
    options. Experience in biomedical engineering research is not required,
    though an interest to work in this field is necessary. The studentship
    covers student fees and a living allowance.

    The position is to be based in the Department of Medical Physics and
    Biomedical Engineering in Salisbury District Hospital. The department
    has an excellent reputation in biomedical engineering, in particular in
    restoring movement patterns using electrical stimulation. This project
    has close links directly with the work in that field.
