  Smart Sensors and Spectral Techniques in Human Movement Science
  Dr D Vicinanza
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Sound and Game Engineering (SAGE) Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/sound-and-game-engineering.
  The effect of age and risk of falling on walking: A holistic approach to human movement analysisEntry Awaiting Update by Supervisor
  Dr G Williams
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The University of Exeter (UoE) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore are offering six fully funded postgraduate studentships to undertake collaborative research projects at the two institutions, leading to PhD degrees (split-site) to be conferred either by the UoE or NTU.
  Optimal control of long-term feedback during periodic and continuous movements
  Dr G Blenkinsop
Applications accepted all year round
Movement variability is inherent in human movement, which during periodic and continuous movement may accumulation over time to cause significant deviations away from the planned movement pattern.
  Simulation of human - built-environment interaction
  Dr E Shahabpoor Ardakani
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Civil structures, particularly bridges, footbridges, tall buildings and long-span floors vibrate when exposed to dynamic forces exerted by wind, vehicles and human movement.
  Movement-science inspired development of upper-limb prostheses for young children
  Dr S Watt, Dr K Valyear
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Project rationale and description. Growing up without a hand poses unique and difficult challenges. Prosthesis provision for infants and young children is extremely limited, and the basic-science principles that inform how children learn to use prosthetic devices are largely unknown.
  Understanding eye-hand coordination in object interception – a computational modelling approach
  Dr S-H Yeo
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project with Dr Yeo will focus on understanding how we perform interception. Interceptive movements--such as catching a gently thrown ball, quickly grabbing a tilting cup to avoid spilling or even just handshaking someone--feel like trivial everyday tasks for us that seemingly look too simple to study.
  Human Capital Investment and Public Policy - Investigating investment in human capital in the presence of government intervention
  Dr J Skatun, Prof C Montagna
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Purpose. The purpose of this PhD proposal is to investigate investment in human capital in the presence of government intervention.
  The importance of sensory acuity and sensory thresholds in human postural control
  Dr G Blenkinsop
Applications accepted all year round
The control of movement and posture requires the detection of the environment through various sensory receptors throughout the body.
  Personalised rehabilitation for musculoskeletal and spinal pain
  Dr A Rushton, Prof D Falla, Dr N Heneghan
Applications accepted all year round
Our PhD students are an active part of our Centre of Precision Rehabilitation for Spinal Pain (CPR Spine). CPR Spine was established at the University of Birmingham in 2016 following a ~£1M investment awarded to Professor Falla and Dr Rushton.
  Psychological, Physiological, and Behavioural Responses to Stress
  Dr S Williams
Applications accepted all year round
By its very nature, sport and physical activity can be very stressful. How an individual responds to these demands, and whether they appraise this stress as challenging or threatening can influence whether they excel or fall to pieces in such situations.
