Supervisor – Dr Alejandro Melendez-Calderon

A PhD position is available in the field of rehabilitation engineering and the neuromechanics.

The goal of our recently founded Medical Robotics and Neuromechanics research group at the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering is to promote better rehabilitation outcomes following neurological injury or disease, and other musculoskeletal disabilities, through technological innovations.

Several projects are available at the interface of robotics, wearable sensors, augmented reality and multi-level neuro-mechanical modelling. Candidates with track record in these areas are encouraged to apply.

The selected PhD candidate will be expected to work in engineering and clinical settings.

A working knowledge of basic neurophysiology, biomechanical modeling (OpenSim, AnyBody), hands-on experience in robotics (control), motion capture (optical and IMUs), and electromyography is a plus.


To be eligible, you must meet the entry requirements for a higher degree by research.

This scholarship is open to Australian citizens, permanent residents and International students who are currently in Australia at the time of application and commencement.
