  Decoding movement kinematics from subpopulations of motor cortex neurons
  Dr T V Gerdjikov, Dr J Liu
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Fine motor control involves the ability to reach, grasp and release objects. It is a fundamental aspect of motor behaviour essential for feeding, self-care and the manipulation of tools.
  Upper limb biomechanical modelling and movement analysis based on inertial sensors
  Dr E Chadwick, Dr D Blana, Dr A Starkey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clinical movement analysis provides quantitative information on patients with movement disorders in order to aid clinical decision making when managing their conditions.
  Face identity recognition: Exploring the role of observer motion and motion of viewed person
  Dr K Lander, Dr P Warren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to identify people around us is crucial to our everyday lives, determining the nature of our social interactions and relationships.
  Perceptual stability in Virtual Reality across the adult lifespan
  Dr P Warren, Dr R Champion
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When we move, stationary parts of the world around us move on the retina. Of course, usually we correctly interpret this retinal motion as due to our own movement and not movement of the surrounding environment.
  Design Apothecary of Embodied Knowledge for Inclusive Spaces
  Dr Carolina Vasilikou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Design Apothecary of Embodied Knowledge aims to bring together hybrid processes informed by design, movement practices and emerging technologies to examine how we can better map thinking in ways of movement in architectural design.
  A new approach to modelling complex human/robot movement dynamics using techniques from machine learning
  Prof X Hong, Prof W Harwin, Prof R Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in sensing and communications have made it easy to obtain large sets of measurements about an entity, activity or event.
  Smart sensors and spectral techniques in human movement science
  Research Group: Computing, Informatics and Applications Research Group
  Dr D Vicinanza, Dr J Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Computing, Informatics and Applications Research Group in collaboration with the Exeter Biomechanics Research Team (ExBiRT), University of Exeter.
  What is on at Downtown? Places, People and Movement in an Urban and Digital Age (Advert Reference: SF19/BL/EIS/DILAVER)
  Dr O Dilaver, Prof D Charles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Urbanisation and digital transformation are two facets of extensive societal change. The former presents a unique dilemma. while more people are attracted to cities around the world, many city centres - the quintessential core of this attraction - are deserted to decay.
  Influence of listener movement on tonality and spatial quality in adaptive immersive surround sound systems
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst there is a significant body of work that focuses on the spatial quality and tonality of immersive surround sound systems for a sweet spot position, these qualities under a dynamic listening scenario (i.e.
  Evaluating motor and cognitive function through gaze-control technology
  Dr D Souto
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gaze-control technology has proved invaluable in assisting people with neurodegenerative conditions, such as Motor Neuron Disease (MND) or Cerebral Palsy (CP), at times dramatically improving their quality of life by extending their ability to communicate independently.
  The relationship between social cognition, bodily movement and functions of the neurobiological basis for social alignment
  Dr H Gvirts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded Ph.D. to begin in October 2019. The candidate will work with Dr. Hila Z. Gvirts on the relationship between social cognition, bodily movement and functions of the neurobiological basis for social alignment.
  Machine learning based movement tracking from Internet-of-Things [IoT] devices to better understand the link between human behaviour and environmental stressors in cities
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr D Topping, Prof J Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The population in cities around the world is growing. Eighty-five per cent of humanity – some nine billion people - will live in cities by the end of this century.
  Data Access and Movement Modelling for HPC
  Dr OT Brown, Dr D Holmes
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The future of high-performance computing is heterogeneous, and with that heterogeneity comes increasingly complex decisions about where data should be located for optimal performance.
  Biologically-plausible neural network models of movement control algorithms
  Dr A Gilra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of neural network implementations of control theory algorithms have been proposed, especially with the recent rise of machine learning.
  Microtubule motors in cell migration and integrin trafficking
  Prof V Allan, Prof P Woodman, Dr P Caswell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration is vital for the development and health of multicellular organisms. However, enhanced cell migration is also a hallmark of cancer cells, and contributes greatly to metastasis.
