PhD Studentship: Development of Haptic Interfaces for Medical Robotics

University of Sussex

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Brighton
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students, International Students
Funding amount: £16,062 per year for 3.5 years and a research training grant of £2,000 for the 3.5-year duration.
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 30th June 2022
Closes: 31st October 2022

What you get

You will receive a tax-free stipend at a standard rate of £16,062 per year for 3.5 years and a research training grant of £2,000 for the 3.5-year duration. In addition, your fees will be waived for 3.5 years up to the overseas rate. 

PhD project

The scope of the project is the development of mechatronics tools to attach to robotics arms for medical robotics (e.g., Rehabilitation, Diagnostics, and Surgery) to enhance the haptic experience of the users. Therefore, you will be tasked to develop the tools, test them, and work with the other researchers in the group to integrate them into the robot arms.  

Medical robots are designed to operate around frail humans safely; we are looking for a PhD student to work on the development of mechatronics interfaces to be mounted on robot arms to perform multiple medical tasks. This research is part of a larger project aiming to design modular medical robots that can perform various medical tasks and be reprogrammed directly from the medical personnel. In other words, a robot capable of performing ultrasound scans, rehabilitation, or minor procedures depending on the clinical needs. 

Eligibility

The studentship is available to: Home, Eu and Overseas. 

Eligible candidates will have a 2:1 degree or equivalent in a related field. 

Deadline

31 October 2022 0:00
