About the Project

The University of Sheffield's Biomedical Robotics Laboratory within the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering invites applications for a PhD Scholarship on Resilient Robotic Implants from talented and excellent graduates.

The project’s mission is to develop bionic and biomedical robots that support sustained autonomous operation for long-term adaptive healthcare. Our group has expertise in design, fabrication, control and evaluation of these biomedical robots in pre-clinical trials. This is an exciting opportunity to join two internationally leading research groups and conduct medical robotics research in an interdisciplinary project involving engineers, scientists and clinicians. The project will be in collaboration with the local and international hospitals and research groups.

Candidates are expected to have a background in one of the following fields: Mechanical Engineering, Robotics, Mechatronics, Electrical Engineering, Material Engineering, Control, Bioengineering or a related field.

Start date is as soon as possible and by no later than October 2021.
