The project relates to the application of surface EMG decomposition to sporting performance or clinical rehabilitation. Applicants from sport science, biomechanics, kinesiology, engineering or related areas are all eligible to apply. A strong aptitude for mathematics, an ability to program in MATLAB, and experience of EMG software is desirable.
Applicants should have a first or upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant area. Applicants with a relevant Masters are particularly welcome. Suitably qualified candidates worldwide may apply, although international students must self-fund the difference between the International and UK/EU fees. Applicants should possess excellent report writing and English language communication skills as well as an ability to work to deadlines. The studentship will require you to do up to 6 hours of work per week, such as, developing partnerships in industry within the region. As such, it is anticipated that the appointed candidate is comfortable liaising with external partners. The income of this will go towards the cost of your tuition fees and any surplus fees will be paid by the College.
