Fully Funded PhD in Biomedical Engineering in U.K

We are seeking applicants for a prestigious Kelvin-Smith Scholarship award at the Biomedical Engineering Research Division, School of Engineering, University of Glasgow, with an interest in working in an interdisciplinary engineering research environment.

University of Glasgow

The research project will develop bio-inspired paradigms underlying the RunBot walking robot into rehabilitation technology for spinal cord injury. The RunBot was developed at Glasgow University and is the fastest robot of its kind, revolutionising the way in which we think about walking (http://www.berndporr.me.uk/ijrr). The walking pattern of the RunBot is generated by the simple idea that ground contact information is used to trigger the walking cycle. We now wish to use this new paradigm as a model to develop new orthetic devices to help people with walking disabilities or with spinal injuries.
