A post-doctoral research position is available in the Lauflabor 
Locomotion Laboratory (www.lauflabor.de) at the University of Jena to 
work on biologically inspired walking ma-chines. This research will 
involve evaluation of existing technical models, development and 
optimization of walking machines based on data of human gait from 
experiments and simula-tions, as well as validation of technical systems 
utilizing motion analysis. The successful can-didate will furthermore 
support and supervise graduate students in ongoing projects on 
con-cepts, design and testing of legged robots, trunk stability in 
bipeds and technical support of experimental setups.

The opening will allow the successful applicant to develop her/his own 
line of research. An existing research plan, which fits the above 
scenario, is largely appreciated. We are looking for candidates with 
expertise in electronics and/or mechanical hardware design. Good 
pro-gramming skills are essential and strong interest in biology and 
biomechanics is highly desir-able.

Review of applications will begin immediately. Please e-mail your 
application including CV, a brief motivation letter, publication list, 
research interests, and contact information of at least 2 professional 
references to Dr. A. Seyfarth (oas at uni-jena.de).
