  • PhD Scholarship in Australia - Clinical Biomechanics

    ARC APAI Scholarship
    Clinical Biomechanics

    Graduates with an honours degree, or equivalent, are invited to apply for
    an APAI scholarship funded as part of an Australian Research Council
    Linkage grant. In collaboration with the Royal Children's Hospital
    Foundation and the Royal Children's Hospital and Health Services District,
    this project focuses on the analysis of children with disabilities that
    limit their ability to walk efficiently. This project aims to develop a
    greater understanding of children who walk with assistive devices, through
    the application of gait analysis techniques. It will incorporate the design
    and development of a portable load-measuring instrument to supplement
    existing methods of assessing walking ability. Clinical studies will be
    undertaken at the Queensland Children's Gait Laboratory.

    The PhD scholarship offers an annual stipend of $23,294 tax free, for a
    period of three years. Applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent
    residents of Australia, and have a background in an area such as
    engineering, physics, biomechanics or other clinically related field.

    Certified copies of academic records, a curriculum vitae and contact
    details of two referees should be forwarded to Dr Timothy Barker, School of
    Mechanical, Manufacturing & Medical Engineering, at the address below, by
    fax 07 3864 1469, or e-mail by February 21, 2003. For
