The Rehabilitation and Neuromuscular (ReNeu) Robotics Lab at the 
University of Maine has MS and PhD student openings for Fall 2010. We 
are looking for motivated individuals who are interested in developing 
robots that will revolutionize upper body prosthetics and rehabilitation.

A number of exciting project are underway in the ReNeu Robotics Lab in 
the areas of robot design, controls, and dynamics for a range of 
biomechanical applications including hand prostheses, upper extremity 
rehabilitation, and analysis of neuromuscular controls.

A degree in either Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, 
Biomedical Engineering, or related fields with a good academic record is 
required. Background experience with robots or human biomechanics is 
preferred, but not essential.  Motivation and interest in the field are 
of utmost importance for the program.

Interested individuals should contact Dr. Ashish Deshpande at 
'Ashish.Deshpande at maine.edu' immediately with a resume and a brief 
statement (couple of paragraphs) of interests.
