POSITIONS on 'human motor adaptation and learning in robotic and virtual environments'
The following openings are available IMMEDIATELY  in the context of the 'H-Man' project at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore

The 'H-Man' Project:
'H-Man' is a novel, cable-driven, planar manipulandum originally devised for experiments in Neuroscience.
Its potential use in stroke rehabilitation will be tested in a battery of clinical trials.
The project is in collaboration with the Tan Tock Seng hospital (TTSH), in Singapore, and with the Imperial College London (ICL), UK.


[Research Fellow (postdoc)]
A Research Fellow (postdoc) is sought to investigate 'human motor adaptation and learning in robotic and virtual environments'.
Within the context of the H-Man project, the Research Fellow will supervise the technical refinement of the current prototypes as well as the clinical trials involving the H-Man. The ideal candidate should hold a PhD degree in robotics or human motor control with substantial and demonstrated postdoctoral experience in clinical robotics and biomechanics.


[Research Associate]
Two positions are available at Research Associate level to assist in the technical refinement of the H-Man. Current prototypes should in fact be made operable in clinical settings. The ideal candidate should hold a Master Degree and demonstrated experience in robotics/mechatronics design.


[PhD Scholarship]
One PhD scholarship on 'human motor adaptation and learning in robotic and virtual environments' is made available through the Nanyang Institute of Technology in Health and Medicine (NITHM)
               http://nithm.ntu.edu.sg/mainprogramme/GraduateProgramme/Pages/Home.aspx
Interested candidates should apply though the following website:
