  • PhD positions in biomechanics available at the University of Salford (UK)

    A range of PhD positions have just been offered by the University of Salford. They span a range of disciplines but the most relevant to BIOMCH-L are probably:
    • Charactrerising variability in normal walking
    • An exploration of the asymmetry in unilateral amputee gait and how this may reduced residuum-socket forces and moments to improve socket comfort.
    • Are running knee kinetics increased in individuals who have had a partial menisectomy - implications for prevention of running related osteoarthritis.
    • Biomechanical determinants of injury risk and performance during change of direction: Implications for screening and interventions.
    • Using body worn activity monitors to prolong independence for people living with dementia.
    • Device selection in users of multiple mobility devices.
    • Is cognitive impairments ther root ot the problem in falls in walking aid users?
    • Role of foot sensation in the control of ambulatory tasks.

    Further details can be found at this link. We suggest that anyone considering an application approaches either of the supervisors before submitting an application. The information names supervisors but doesn't provide e-mail details for some reason (maybe this is the first challenge to identify the stronger candidates.

    Applications are though an on-line process that you can enter through this page.
