Hello,
Could you please post the following three openings in the
robotics-worldwide mailing list?

Thank you,
Ganesh

Multiple postdoc positions at RPI


Postdoctoral Associate position in virtual surgery at RPI

The Center for Modeling, Simulation and Imaging in Medicine (CeMSIM) at
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA invites applications for
the position of postdoctoral associate  to work on projects funded by the
NIH on developing virtual surgery technology.  The ideal candidate will
develop the next generation surgical simulation technology  based on
advanced physics-based computational methods and robotic systems in
collaboration with surgeons at Harvard Medical School.

Desirable background for this position includes:

· PhD in Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering
or related field.
· Strong background in Computer Graphics and Haptics. Specific knowledge of
real time computing  is a plus.
· Background in robotics/ mechatronics.
· Excellent programming skills
· Experience in developing virtual environments involving haptics.

Postdoctoral Associate position in soft tissue biomechanics at RPI

The Center for Modeling, Simulation and Imaging in Medicine (CeMSIM) at
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA invites applications for
the position of postdoctoral associate  to work on multiple projects funded
by the NIH on in vivo/ in situ soft tissue experimentation and modeling.
Projects involve performance of experiments, constitutive modeling and
inverse finite element analysis to determine soft tissue properties from
image data.

Desirable background for this position includes:

·      PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering or related
field.
·      Experience with instrumentation and data acquisition.
·      Knowledge of soft tissue biomechanics and modeling.
·      Knowledge and experience in ultrasound elastography.
·      Knowledge of finite element modeling, particularly inverse finite
element methods

Postdoctoral Associate position in motor control and learning at RPI

The Center for Modeling, Simulation and Imaging in Medicine (CeMSIM) at
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA invites applications for
the position of postdoctoral associate  to work on multiple projects funded
by the NIH on human motor control and learning. Projects involve design of
experiments and clinical studies involving medical personnel using
state-of-the-art interactive virtual environments. The aim of these
projects is to develop next generation environments for psychomotor skill
training.

Desirable background for this position includes:

·      PhD in Cognitive Science, Psychology, Computer Science, Mechanical
Engineering, or related field.
·      Knowledge of motor control and learning theories.
·      Experience with setting  up innovative human subjects experiments.
·      Experience with psychomotor skill assessment.
·      Experience with multimodal virtual environments.

Application
Interested candidates may apply to Professor Suvranu De (des at rpi.edu) with
a cover letter, detailed CV, a copy of the publication deemed as best
representative of the candidate’s creative research, and names and email
addresses of three referees. Applications from minority and women are
especially encouraged. RPI is an Equal Opportunity/ Affirmative Action
employer.
