The FamilyGenomics research group led by Dr Lorna Lopez, in collaboration with behavioural neuroscientist Professor Andrew Coogan at Maynooth University, invite applications for the SleepTimeData PhD project.

 

Sleep is recognised as a core pillar of both physical and mental health. A key challenge in sleep medicine has been gathering long-term data on sleep patterns within individuals due to the technical limitations of sleep-tracking devices. The SleepTimeData project will deploy novel radar-based sleep monitoring technology that will facilitate the collection of sleep data across time-spans of months to years, allowing for substantial progress in understanding links between sleep problems and mental health.

 

The SleepTimeData PhD project will use novel radar-based technology for the long-term sleep monitoring of individuals with a neuropsychiatric or neurodevelopmental conditions. The project will use a combination of analytical approaches, including quantitative analysis of sleep data, psychometrics and qualitative assessment of participants’ experiences. This comprehensive approach aims to drive innovative advances in sleep data analytics to advance our understanding of mental health challenges. 

All applications must be made via the Online Portal at the link above. Informal inquiries can be made to Dr Lorna Lopez (lorna.lopez@mu.ie). We look forward to hearing from you.

Please note the closing date for applications is Tuesday 5th March 2024.
