This post offers a unique opportunity to be part of large-scale clinical study and is funded by a research grant from Diabetes UK. The successful candidate will play an integral role as part of a research study investigating the use of novel biofeedback technology in reducing plantar pressures in diabetic patients. The development of foot ulcers in patients with diabetes is largely attributed to high plantar pressures and this project aims to intervene on foot pressures to reduce the incidence of foot ulcers sustained in these patients.

The MOVE-AGE PhD program, a joint PhD program of three European universities funded by the EU, will offer 9 PhD fellowships starting October 2013. The MOVE-AGE program focuses on mobility in the ageing population and does so taking a very broad, multidisciplinary perspective. This implies that the program may be of interest to a wide range of students, including students with an MSc in movement sciences, rehabilitation sciences, biomechanics, exercise physiology, biomedical engineering, cell biology, and neurosciences.
More information on the program as well as the application form can be found on our website www.move-age.eu.
