PhD position in
  Kinematic and Dynamic Synergies of the Human Wrist

  School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
  Nanyang Technological University

Starting date:
  August 2010 (recruitment starts IMMEDIATELY)

  English certification and GRE, please check here for further details:

A PhD Scholarship is available for research at the School of Mechanical
& Aerospace Engineering, Nanyang Technological University - Singapore,
on the study of the kinematic and dynamic synergies of the human wrist as a
basis for the development of upper limb rehabilitation robots.

The work involves theoretical as well as experimental aspects including
kinematic analysis of human movements, biomechanical characterization and
modeling of the human upper limb, development of ad-hoc setups for constrained
and unconstrained assessment of motor strategies.

The ideal candidate should have interests in Neuroscience (motor control) with
a solid background in Engineering (e.g. Biomechanics and/or Robotics).
Some programming skills are expected.
Candidates with a master or equivalent are preferred.

To apply, please e-mail a Cover Letter, describing background and motivation,
and CV including references to Dr. Domenico CAMPOLO at d.campolo at ntu.edu.sg<mailto:d.campolo at ntu.edu.sg>
