POSTDOC position on 'human motor strategies during tooling tasks'
A Research Fellow (postdoc) position is available at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, in the context of the 'Industrial Robotics Programme', a Singapore-wide, multi-institute Programme funded by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research and aimed at improving productivity through robotics.
With focus on industry-specific tasks, one sub-project is related to learning human skills during finishing tasks. There are in fact many industrial tasks which require highly skilled personnel and where robots are currently far behind.
A Research Fellow (postdoc) is sought to investigate 'human motor strategies during tooling tasks', with special emphasis on mechanisms and strategies adopted by humans for arm impedance modulation.
The ideal candidate should hold a PhD degree in robotics, biomechanics or computational human motor control with substantial and demonstrated postdoctoral experience in human impedance assessment.
