  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Applications accepted all year round
Most animal movements are driven by muscle contractions controlled by the nervous system, but there is now considerable evidence that passive forces, originating in muscles, tendons or other tissues, interact with active forces to generate limb movements in both vertebrates and invertebrates (Page et al.
  Motor Control, Motor Learning and Brain Stimulation - investigating how the brain controls movement and how it allows us to learn new motor skills
  Dr N Jenkinson
Applications accepted all year round
My research incorporates a range of techniques including non-invasive brain stimulation, electrophysiological recording, eye-tracking, neuroimaging and behavioural techniques.
  Understanding the role of serotonergic systems in motor control
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Serotonin is a key modulator of locomotor activity in the brain and spinal cord of vertebrates. A wide range pharmacological and lesion studies have provided important information about the role of serotonergic systems in modulation of motor output.
  Predictive motor control in autism: establishing whether movement difficulties are caused by problems with prediction
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff, Dr S Baines
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long condition affecting communication and social interactions. ~70% of autistic individuals also have movement difficulties such as poor eye-hand coordination and unstable balance.
  Characterising motor impairments in autism using computational techniques
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people.
  The effect of experience, slope and club selection on human kinematic variability and performance outcomes in golf
  Dr M Hiley, Dr G Blenkinsop
Applications accepted all year round
To determine the effect of task constraints on the variability in technique and performance outcomes in golf. Golf demands consistent performance, so understanding how various task constraints (e.g.
  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.
  Investigating motor impulse control in Parkinson’s disease using non-invasive brain stimulation
  Dr H MacDonald, Dr C J McAllister
Applications accepted all year round
The ability to control our urges and impulses is arguably one thing that sets humans apart from other species. We have the capacity to think before we act.
  An examination of the individual and environmental factors influencing the visual control of braking during cycling: Implications for city planning
  Dr M Navarro, Dr M Dicks, Dr F Lemes
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the Department of Sport and Exercise Science and will be supervised by Dr Martina Navarro, Dr Matt Dicks and Dr Fabiano Lemes De Oliveira.
