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)
Interested candidates should apply though the following website:
and select
 - program code 193A for IGS-NITHM PhD Programme
- supervisor 'Domenico CAMPOLO'
