15 fully funded PhD positions are available for Action-perception research in rehabilitation in Europe within the REPAIRS training network.
REPAIRS is an acronym for RE-learning Perception-Action In Rehabilitation from a Systems perspective. It is a European Training Network (ETN) within the H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovation Training Network programme, funded by the European Union. The positions are not restricted to students from Europe but are open for applicants from all countries. REPAIRS aims to improve the effectiveness of rehabilitation that is concerned with the restoration and enhancement of functional ability and quality of life of people with a movement disorder or disability related to perception and action. To this end REPAIRS combines insights from fundamental research on how individuals re-learn perception and action with cutting-edge rehabilitation practice using a systems perspective. The REPAIRS network consists of 20 partners (academic partners, clinical partners, industrial partners and patient organizations) to provide innovative training-through-research preparing the PhDs to become the next generation of creative, innovative and leading academic and entrepreneurial researchers.
Students with a background in human movement science, (neuro) motor control, kinesiology, rehabilitation, behavioral sciences, cognitive science, engineering, machine learning, mathematical modelling at neural and behavioral level, or philosophy are encouraged to apply. The closing date is February 28, 2021.
