Are you interested in the implementation of digital health technology for neurological disorders?

We are looking for a really motivated PhD candidate to join us at the Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh Campus, UK). This is a full-time opening for a 4-year PhD scholarship (with a stipendium of 18,622 pounds per year, no tuition fees) to work in collaboration with UK and international universities. As part of this project, you will develop objective, cost-effective, valid and novel methods for real-world gait assessment in Parkinson’s Disease with a single wearable sensor. Particularly, we aim to better characterise the effect of anti-parkinsonian medication and progression in Parkinson’s Disease, which in turn, will likely improve its clinical management. A successful candidate is expected to hold a master’s degree with a significant research component in either of biomedical engineering, electronic engineering, computer engineering, data science and robotics. Foundation skills in computer programming (MATLAB or/and Python) and machine learning are essential. Expressions of interest are welcome from UK-nationals and residences with settlement/pre-settlement status. The expected start is in September/October. Please, apply as soon as possible via the link below: Do not hesitate to contact us for any further information or doubt. Looking forward to working with you and excited to bring science forward.
