[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PhD studentship in Rehabilitation & Assistive Robotics at ASPIRE CREATe lab, UCL, London

Alireza Rastegarpanah
*PhD studentship in Rehabilitation & Assistive Robotics*

3-year PhD studentship is available in the UCL’s AspireCREATe Centre for
Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (Aspire CREATe). Aspire
CREATe is part of UCL Faculty of Medical Sciences and UCL Faculty of
Engineering Sciences. Founded in 1826, UCLis one of the world’s  leading
universities  focused on research  excellence  and  teaching. The  student
will  be registered  with  UCL  and  join  a  team  of researchers at  the
Aspire  CREATe  centre,  the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre (LSCIC), and
the Peripheral Nerve Injury Unit (PNI) at the Royal National Orthopaedic
Hospital  (RNOH).  The  studentship will  be  based  at  the  UCL/RNOH
Stanmore campus.

The studentship is available for immediate start and will cover each a
tax-free stipend between  £16,504 and £17,160 per annum (subject to
nationality and residence status) and tuition fees (*for UK/EU students
only*).

This studentship focuses on the design and development of a grasp
exoskeleton for assisting  SCI patients in ADL tasks. We are interested in
exploring soft robotics design techniques to achieve a highly versatile
device that could potentially assist SCI individuals with limited hand
function while manipulating objects and executing ADLs (e.g. drinking,
eating). We envision a device that will be easy to use, low-cost and double
up as a rehabilitation device with translation to other populations (e.g.
brain and nerve injuries). The work will include mechatronic design and
real-time control of robotic components, running experiments (validation),
recording, analysing, presenting and writing up the results.

*Application*
To make an application please submit a 2-page CV with a cover letter,
explaining your motivation  for  applying, interests,  engineering  and
research  experience  (including  examples  of  previous  project work) to
*Dr Alireza Rastegarpanah ([hidden email]) and Dr Rui Loureiro
([hidden email])*.

*Please note that the deadline is extended to 15/10/2017. It would be
recommended to send your CV ASAP.*
