Dear Moderator,
can you please pass to or post the job opening below to the robotics  
thank you very much, etienne

Department of Bioengineering
4 postdoc or Ph.D. positions at the interface of Neuroscience and  

We have recently received funding from the EU-FP7 for four positions  
to investigate how humans physically interact and adapt their control  
to perform efficient manipulation.

Ideal candidates will have a strong background in robotics/ 
mechatronics, physics, control, or neurophysiology,  
neurorehabilitation or fMRI. They should have potential for excellent  
research and the capability to collaborate within an  
interdisciplinary research group with people from all these  
disciplines. They should be highly motivated to use robotics and  
control techniques for tackling fundamental issues in motor control/ 
learning, or in the rehabilitation after neurological disorders.

Applicants for a postdoc position should have obtained, or be about  
to obtain, a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. Applicants  
for a Ph.D. position should have an MSc degree, although exceptional  
candidates with a BSc degree will be considered. Applicants with a  
bursary or a fellowship who want to participate in this research are  
also welcome.

Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine (http:// 
www3.imperial.ac.uk/) is a leading technological university with a  
global reach and Neurotechnology has been selected as a strategic  
development area. The Human Robotics group at Imperial College  
(http://www.bg.ic.ac.uk/staff/burdet/Home.html) carries out research  
at the interface of robotics and neuroscience, from  
neurophysiological studies and computational modelling to robotic  
implementations, VR-aided neuro-rehabilitation and assistive devices.

Enquiries about these positions or applications can be made to  
Etienne Burdet (http://www.bg.ic.ac.uk/staff/burdet/Home.html,  
e.burdet at imperial.ac.uk) adding the title ‘Human Robotics Position’  
and your name as the subject of your email.

To apply please submit a CV, a brief expression of interest  
describing why you are interested by this position and you qualify  
for it, the names of suitable referees, and scans of your academic  
transcripts should be sent to e.burdet at imperial.ac.uk.
