Dear all,

The Laboratory of Images, Systems and Intelligent Systems - University 
of Paris-Est Créteil (UPEC), France, has an opening for one fully funded 
Postdoctoral Fellow.

Topic: Wearable robots for lower limb assistance and rehabilitation

Qualified young postdocs are sought for a project funded by the European 
Funds for Regional Development (FEDER) and the University of Paris-Est 
Créteil (UPEC).

This project seeks to develop and experimentally validate new approach 
to allow smooth interaction between human lower limbs and wearable 
robots. The proposed approach should take into account changing 
environment such as impact with the ground. Zero-impedance control 
strategy will be adopted to reduce robot stiffness. The research will be 
validated on experimental robotics platforms. Prior experience in 
musculo-skeletal modeling and biomechanics is a plus.

Required Qualifications:

The applicant must have completed a PhD studies in Robotics, 
Bio-robotics, Mechatronics, Automatic Control or related fields

Strong experience in design, modeling and experimentation

Strong experience in software programming (C/C++, Labview, 
Matlab/Simulink-Real time)

Hands-on experience in data acquisition, filtering, wearable sensors, etc..

Proficiency in rapid prototyping methods and the ability to work in a 
multi-disciplinary team.

High quality publication record in the above mentioned fields.

It is expected that the candidate will have excellent oral and verbal 
English communication skills.

The candidate is expected to start as soon as possible. Applications
