The Laboratory for Computational Brain Modeling and Analysis at Rutgers 
University has several funded openings for PhD students in 
Neuro-Rehabilitation Robotics Our Lab is part of the CS Department, 
which has been consistently ranked at the top-35 CS Departments in U.S. 
We are searching for Renaissance types who are broadly trained and can 
march across disciplines to find solutions In addition to Computer 
Science, there are 5 areas of knowledge required for a successful 
presence in the Lab - computer science, robotics, signal analysis, 
mathematics and neurophysiology When you come (or when you leave), you 
are expected to be proficient in at least three of these areas 
Interested students could send a 1-page summary of their background and 
how it relates to the Neuro-Rehabilitation Robotics as well as their CV 
to: konstantinos.michmizos at cs.rutgers.edu, with email subject: 
PhD_openings-2016 === Applying Please note the PhD admission criteria 
for the CS Department, listed at 
https://www.cs.rutgers.edu/graduate/faq.whtml The deadline to be 
considered for the Fall semester of 2016 is January 1st All complete 
applications should be submitted through our online application system

ongoing collaborations with research labs at MIT and McGill University 
as well as clinical sites at Harvard Medical School and the Robert Wood 
Johnson University Hospital The Lab is integrated into the Center for 
Computational Biomedicine Imaging and Modeling (CBIM) Center, a highly 
multidisciplinary Center at Rutgers that includes research labs on human 
motion capture experiments, machine learning and robotics === Rutgers 
University Rutgers University is the 8th-oldest college in the United 
States, one of the top-50 universities in the world with 250 years of 
innovation in research and teaching Rutgers is in the middle of the 
greatest concentration of industrial and government research 
laboratories in the U.S., within 1-hour drive to Manhattan, NY and 
Philadelphia -- combra.cs.rutgers.edu
