The Medical Device Research Institute at Flinders University are pleased to call for applications to a PhD in Engineering (Research) postgraduate scholarship for a maximum period of three years with an annual tax free stipend of AUD$28,715.
The PhD project is part of a collaborative research project between Flinders University and ResMed, a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of medical equipment for treating, diagnosing, and managing sleep-disordered breathing and other respiratory disorders and will be jointly supervised by Prof Karen Reynolds of the Medical Device Research Institute and Dr Steven Farrugia of ResMed.
The research student will be primarily located at Flinders University and shall contribute to the project through the development of a sensor or device and methods that can be integrated into a CPAP mask cushion, frame or head gear. System outputs will be analysed to produce simple measures of heart rate and heart rate variability, or more complex measures of cardiovascular, diabetic, and autonomic status.
