  • PhD available for immediate start

    We are offering a PhD position (for 3 or 4 years) examining the areas of
    both (i) the biomechanics of tennis and (ii) motor learning from image
    feedback. The project is part of a large CSET funded project called CLARITY
    ( which is a partnership between Dublin City
    University and University College Dublin, supported by research at the
    Tyndall National Institute (TNI) Cork.

    One section of the CLARITY project is a ‘tennis-sense’ group who are aiming
    to develop new technologies and techniques to facilitate improving tennis
    performance. Two of the technologies being developed include:
    - the use of inertial measurement units to track movement
    - the use of animated characters that can be manipulated to provide varying
    levels of image feedback
    The successful applicant will broadly examine the biomechanics of tennis and
    examine the use of the above technologies for enhancing tennis; but the
    exact nature of the project will evolve as the technologies mature.

    We are seeking applicants who have a strong interest in biomechanics and/or
    motor learning, are highly self-motivated, have a long term plan to work in
    the area and are innovative in their thinking.

    The stipend will be €16k per annum (plus your fees paid).

    If you are interested in the position please contact Dr Kieran Moran in the
    first instance. The student will be expected to begin as soon as possible
