Postdoc position in the control of lower limb exoskeletons

The Biorobotics laboratory (Biorob, http://biorob.epfl.ch/) at EPFL 
(Lausanne, Switzerland) has one open postdoc position in the control of 
lower limb exoskeletons for patients with a spinal cord injury. The 
position is part of the SYMBITRON project (http://www.symbitron.eu/ 
funded by the European Commission), and involves developing controllers 
for exoskeletons inspired by neuromechanical models of human locomotion, 
in collaboration with groups at TU Delft, University of Twente, Santa 
Lucia Foundation Rome, Imperial College, London and Ossur from Iceland.

EPFL is one of the leading Institutes of Technology in Europe and offers 
internationally competitive salaries and research infrastructure.


Candidates should have a Ph.D. and a strong publication record in 
rehabilitation robotics or legged robotics. The ideal candidate will 
have prior experience with control of real hardware, neuromechanical 
models of human locomotion, and/or with running experiments with 
patients. Good communication and management skills are a plus. Fluency 
in oral and written English is required.

How to apply for the Postdoc position:

The application should consists of a motivation letter (explaining why 
you are interested in the project, and why you feel qualified for it), a 
full CV, two or three relevant publications, and the email addresses of 
two referees. PDF files are preferred. The files should be sent to 
auke.ijspeert at epfl.ch.

Deadline and starting date:

The starting date is flexible, ideally between June and September 2015. 
  Applications should be sent before March 6, and will then be processed 
as they arrive until the position is closed.

any inquiry by email to: Prof. Auke Jan Ijspeert, auke.ijspeert at epfl.ch
