*Postdoctoral position in novel robotic interfaces at RPI*
*Description & Requirement*
The Center for Modeling, Simulation and Imaging in Medicine (CeMSIM) at
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA invites applications for a
postdoctoral researcher to develop the next generation robotic interface
devices with integrated tactile and kinesthetic feedback. Of particular
interest are candidates with strong background in device development,
characterization and modeling. The ideal candidate will develop robotic
interface hardware, software and control algorithms; perform human subjects
studies and enable integration with complex high fidelity multi-modal
simulation environments. There is an added opportunity to identify and
develop new research agenda, technical challenges and funding opportunities
as well as supervise and mentor assigned graduate students and research
staff at the Center.
Desirable background for this position includes:
· PhD in Mechanical/ Electrical/Computer Engineering or related
· Robotic system design and integration
· Strong track record of journal publications.
· Statistical analysis and design of experiments.
Rensselaer’s Center of Modeling, Simulation and Imaging
<http://cemsim.rpi.edu/> is a unique enterprise established with the
