    Funded PhD in Movement Variability - La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia


    A funded PhD position is currently available in the field of movement variability at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia. The closing date for applications is 31 October 2019. Please see https://www.latrobe.edu.au/study/apply/research/doctor for further details about Graduate Research Degrees at La Trobe University, including eligibility criteria. Applicants must be an Australian citizen.

    The successful candidate will receive a full tuition fee-offset and an RTP scholarship (tax-free living allowance) of AU$27,596 (2019 rate, indexed annually) for 3.5 years.

    We are currently recruiting a suitable candidate to conduct a research project investigating the relationship between movement variability and a range of individual, task and environmental constraints during military load carriage. As this project will form part of a larger project, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to additional, yet related, studies.

    The project will be well resourced by La Trobe University’s new Sports Science laboratories, a $75 million investment from the University. The biomechanics lab will be equipped with multiple Vicon motion capture systems, in-ground and portable force plates, an instrumented treadmill, wireless EMG, and inertial measurement units.

    Candidates should have a strong background in biomechanics (or related field) and experience collecting and analysing kinematic and kinetic data (e.g. 3D motion capture, force plates, EMG). Demonstrated ability to disseminate research findings (e.g. peer-reviewed publication/s and/or oral presentations) is preferred. Experience analysing time-series data (e.g. detrended fluctuation analysis; goal equivalent manifold) will be considered favourable.
