Multiple positions as Research Fellow (RF, postdoc) or Research Associate
(RA, Ms degree holder) are available in the context of the 'H-Man' project
at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore

The 'H-Man' Project: H-Man is a novel, cable-driven, planar manipulandum
originally devised for experiments in Neuroscience.
More details of the robot can be found here:
                 
http://www3.ntu.edu.sg/home/d.campolo/pdf/2014_JNM_HMan.pdf

Its potential use in stroke rehabilitation is currently being tested in a
battery of clinical trials.

The project started in Aug 2013 and is in collaboration with the Tan Tock
Seng hospital (TTSH), in Singapore, and with the Imperial College London
(ICL), UK. Currently we have a first prototype being tested in a clinical
Pilot study involving stroke patients.

Profile 1
A Research Associate or Research Fellow is sought to supervise clinical
trials involving the H-Man. The ideal candidate should hold a degree in
areas related to Robotics or Human Motor Control or Biomechanics with
substantial and demonstrated clinical experience with neurologically
impaired subjects. Clinical experience with rehabilitation of the upper limb
in stroke patients / elderly population is highly preferred.

Profile 2
Multiple positions are available at Research Associate and/or Research
Fellow level to develop novel control strategies for the H-Man. The ideal
candidate should hold a Master Degree and demonstrated experience in
robotics/mechatronics design. Experience in human-robot interaction
experiments is highly preferred.
