About the Project
The supervisors, Professor Valerie Pomeroy and Dr Alpar Lazar, are international experts in stroke rehabilitation and sleep respectively. The student will be immersed into the multi-disciplinary environment of the School of Health Sciences in the University of East Anglia. Expertise available includes: sleep science; rehabilitation science; neurophysiology, physiotherapy, movement science, medical statistics, health economics, and early phase evaluation of complex interventions. The immediate environment also includes state-of-the-art laboratories for Movement Analysis and Sleep. The research environment into which the student will be immersed also includes industrial collaborations for evaluation of novel rehabilitation technologies.

This is a PhD project.
The start date of the project is 1 October 2020.
The mode of study is full-time.The studentship length is 3 years with a 1-year registration period.
Candidates should have at least an upper-second-class first degree or a Masters degree in an area relevant to this PhD studentship: SleepWalk. This includes, but is not exclusive to: neuroscience, movement science, sleep science, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. Some participants in the studies of this PhD studentship will be NHS patients. Therefore, the student will require CRB clearance. Registration with a clinical professional body is not essential.
Please note: Applications are processed as soon as they are received and the project may be filled before the closing date, so early application is encouraged.
A bench fee may also payable on top of the tuition fee to cover specialist equipment or laboratory costs required for the research. The amount charged annually will vary considerably depending on the nature of the project and applicants should contact the primary supervisor for further information about the fee associated with the project.
