Thank you for sharing these new openings.
(Please excuse any multiple postings)


Open positions in Human-machine interaction at Imperial College London:

3 postdocs, PhD and faculty positions at Imperial College London (
http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/). Imperial is a leading technological
university with global reach (consistently in the top ten universities
worldwide according to the QS World University Rankings conducted by the
Times Higher Education Supplement). It embodies and delivers world-class
scholarship, education and research in science, engineering and medicine,
with particular regard to their application in industry, commerce and

We do research in human-machine interaction at Imperial College London, see
http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/humanrobotics. For instance, we investigate the
behavioural and neural aspects of sensorimotor interaction between humans,
shape human-robots interaction, develop the control of lower-limb
exoskeletons and simple systems for home-based neurorehabilitation of hand
and arm, investigate the neural development in preterm babies using fMRI
and compatible robotic devices, etc.

We have received some large grants and currently have 3 open Research
Associate (postdoc) positions.

If you are interested by such projects and your background in robotics,
control, physics or neuroscience is suitable, you can email
e.burdet at imperial.ac.uk a short motivation for the position, your CV as
well as a scan of your academic transcripts.

Please use as title of your email: Human Robotics: RA position, "your name".

There is also an open PhD position on human-human and human-robot motor
interaction requiring control background , see
http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/humanrobotics/positions/astarimperial. In
general, interested candidates for PhD positions able to attract a
scholarship can apply in the same way, using the email title: Human
Robotics: PhD position, "your name".

Finally, there are up to 4 open faculty positions available in the
department of Bioengineering (http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/bioengineering)
and translational neurotechnology is one of the preferred topics. There are
currently good possibilities to get PhD scholarships in this topic from the
centre for doctoral training in neurotechnology, and intense, growing
translational neurotechnology activity in the department of Bioengineering.

Thank you,
