Supervisor – Professor Juha Toyras
This PhD project will focus on developing artificial intelligence (particularly deep learning-based) approaches for diagnostics and phenotyping of sleep disorders, especially sleep apnea. We develop methods that may be implemented in wearable sensors and devices for automated screening of sleep apnea and linking sleep apnea phenotype to daytime symptoms. The study is based on large Australian and international databases. The project will require the student to develop deep learning solutions, but also using more conventional signal analysis and processing techniques.
The successful candidate will benefit from excellent mentorship and opportunities for international academic and industry collaboration.
A working knowledge of biosignal processing, machine learning methods and sleep disorders would be of benefit to someone working on this project.
To be eligible to apply, you must also meet the entry requirements for Higher Degrees by Research at UQ. Applications will be judged on a competitive basis taking into account the applicant’s previous academic record, publication record, honours and awards, and employment history.
The applicant will demonstrate academic achievement in the field/s of biosignal processing and machine learning techniques and the potential for scholastic success.
A background or knowledge of sleep disorders is highly desirable.
This scholarship is open to Australian citizens, permanent residents and International students who are currently in Australia.
The 2021 Research Training Program (RTP) living allowance stipend rate is AUD$28,597 per annum (indexed annually), which is tax-free for three years with two possible extensions of up to 6 months each in approved circumstances (conditions apply).
