Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the field of Perception, Action and Cognition. This studentship represents an exciting opportunity to conduct research as part of a multi-disciplinary team of psychologists, neuroscientists, clinicians, and engineers from the University of Leeds and collaborating Universities.

The PhD will look at the mechanisms that underpin effective rehabilitation of visually directed motor-control after stroke. The aim is to use engaging computer software and force-feedback control devices to create targeted rehabilitation within the home. In addition we will use DC-Stimulation to modulate neuroplasticity in an attempt to enhance concurrent rehabilitation techniques. The student will be based at the University of Leeds and supervised by Dr Richard Wilkie (Lecturer in Perception, Action & Cognition) with co-supervision from Dr Melanie Burke and Professor Mark Mon-Williams (based at U.Leeds) and Professor Vincent Walsh (based at UCL)
