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 human movement 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 of
human-machine interaction, computational neuroscience.

The ideal candidate should have interests in Neuroscience (motor control) with
a solid background in Engineering (e.g. Control, Robotics, Biomechanics).
Some programming skills are expected, e.g. familiarity with MATLAB environment.
Fluency in English speaking/writing is required.
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
