  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Applications accepted all year round
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

The project involves the design of a novel control system for a 6 degrees of freedom parallel robot. The project will include incorporating position/orientation sensors to provide a robust servo-controlled feedback system that can provide active/passive actuation system in conjunction with an impedance control strategy for leg rehabilitation of post stroke patients. The project will require an interest/background in robotic, mechatronics, kinematics, and/or control engineering.

Funding Notes

For excellent applicants (very good first degree), there is the potential for funding for Home (UK) / EU students that will cover fees and a stipend of £14,400 un-taxed. Overseas students are welcome to apply but should note that they will be required to be either completely self-funding, or if awarded a scholarship, they should be able to pay for their living expenses.
