    Funded PhD Scholarship in Foot Neuromechanics, The University of Queensland

    The Centre for Sensorimotor Performance at the University of Queensland (Australia), in collaboration with researchers from The Australian Institute of Sport, are pleased to offer a fully funded PhD place for an outstanding student to study foot Neuromechanics.

    The research project is funded through an Australian Research Council Linkage Grant and will incorporate the use of novel musculoskeletal imaging, biomechanical and neurophysiological research tools to explore ways to augment / enhance the function of the human foot during running. This research will have direct implications for management of running injury and athletic performance.The project will suit students with a strong background in biomechanics from any of the following fields - bio/mechanical engineering, exercise science (kinesiology), rehabilitation sciences (physiotherapy, podiatry), comparative biology or anatomy.

    The research team for this grant includes Dr Luke Kelly (UQ), Dr Dominic Farris (University of Exeter), Assoc. Prof Gen Lichtwark (UQ) and Prof. Andrew Cresswell (UQ).

    Essential qualities for candidates include - strong computational and analytical skills in Biomechanics including knowledge of three dimensional kinematics and kinetics and experience in working with human research participants.

    The opportunity is open to both International and Domestic candidates. Competitive international applicants will have a Masters level qualification and evidence of peer reviewed journal publications and conference presentations.

    Tuition fees will be covered and a living stipend (currently $26800 per annum, tax free) will be included as part of the scholarship. Exceptional candidates may also apply for a top-up to this scholarship.

    If you are interested in applying, please contact Dr Luke Kelly ( with your CV.
