Post-Doc Opening in Human-in-the-Loop Control of Assistive Devices

The Human-Robot Interfaces and physical Interaction (HRI2) Laboratory of the Advanced Robotics Department (ADVR) at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia<http://iit.it/> - IIT is seeking a highly motivated, full-time postdoctoral researcher to work in the area of human-in-the-loop control of assistive devices.

We are looking for an outstanding scientist with a PhD in Robotics (or a closely related field) and an excellent publication record in one or more of the following areas :

*         Human-in-the-loop control of upper/lower limb assistive robots;

*         Physical Human-Robot Interaction control;

*         Electromyography (EMG) based rehabilitation/power augmentation control;

*         Biomechanics and motor control of human movements.

The successful candidate will work on the establishment of effective human-robot interfaces for intuitive control of the prosthetic/power augmentation devices. This research will explore the potential of integrating reduced complexity models of the human motor behaviour in the control architecture of the robotic platform.
Interested applicants should submit their CV electronically outlining experience and qualifications, list of publications, a statement of research interests and plans and the names of at least two referees to Arash Ajoudani (arash.ajoudani at iit.it<mailto:arash.ajoudani at iit.it>), quoting HRII-PD2016 in the email subject.
Please apply before December 11, 2015.
