Research Fellow in Wearable Sensing for Rehabilitation

Are you an experienced and ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in sensing and rehabilitation? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

We are looking for a proactive individual to join our teams of researchers at the , currently working on a wide range of affordable, innovative, reconfigurable robots that are tailored to meet patients’ needs, deliver effective diagnosis and personalised treatment for patients with stroke.

This opportunity is created by an EPSRC grant led by the University of Leeds and the King’s College London. The project aims to develop a nationwide robot-assisted home-based rehabilitation programme. Our project partners (D4D), Steeper Group, DIH/Hocoma, AiTreat and the National Demonstration Centre for Rehabilitation at Leeds Teaching Hospital NHS Trust will provide adequate links and resources for this project. This project will establish a transferable technology for stroke survivors' rehabilitation at home, with a potential impact on millions of people in the UK and worldwide.

Your work will focus on developing real-time lower limb biomechanics models for disability assessment. You will develop wearable sensing and machine learning algorithms for disability assessment, and IoT based remote diagnosis algorithms for stroke recovery.

Holding a PhD (or close to completion) in Biomedical Engineering, Wearable Sensing, Electrical Engineering or a closely allied discipline, you will have experience in using different wearable sensors.
