My group at Cleveland State University is looking for a doctoral student 
to study intelligent control of human motion. Specifically, we work to 
restore reaching movements to people with paralyzed arms due to spinal 
cord injury by using functional electrical stimulation. When 
electrically stimulated, muscles contract, induce skeletal movement, and 
potentially restore function to people with spinal cord injury.

The student selected for the position will develop identification, 
planning, and control strategies for a functional electrical stimulation 
neuroprosthesis. The work will involve theoretical and applied aspects. 
The application presents a unique opportunity to work side-by-side with 
the very few people who currently have a full-arm functional electrical 
stimulation neuroprosthesis.

Applicants should possess the following qualities

- desire to work with people with disabilities

- experience in computer programming

- excellent written and spoken English skills

- interest in machine learning, control of dynamic systems, and robotics

This is a funded position that includes tuition and a monthly stipend. 
If you are interested in joining my research group, please send an email 
to me at e.schearer at csuohio.edu with your CV/resume attached.
