The Department of Automation, Biocybernetics and Robotics at Jozef Stefan
Institute in Slovenia invites applications for post-doc researchers and PhD
students in the field of control and learning for exoskeletons and
assistive robotic devices.

The successful candidates will work on human-robot interfaces, control and
learning of exoskeletons for power augmentation, injury prevention and
rehabilitation. The research will be focused on models of human motor
control and their integration into the control algorithms of robotic
systems. The work will be tightly related to several ongoing national and
international projects including FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects. Expected
starting date is January 2016. Successful candidates will be offered a
one-year contract, with possible future extensions.

The candidates should have keen interest in experimental robotic systems
and prior experience in robot control and machine learning. The post-doc
candidates are required to have PhD in either Computer Science, Electrical
Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or a related field. They will be
expected to conduct cutting-edge research and publish scholarly papers. The
candidates for PhD position should hold either a BSc, MSc or equivalent in
either Computer Science, Engineering, Physics or Applied Mathematics. They
should have a solid background in linear algebra, statistics, signal
processing and programming.

Applications should be emailed to Jan Babic (jan.babic at ijs.si) and should
contain a cover letter describing research interests and goals, CV, a
complete list of publications, and names and contact information of two
references willing to provide letters of recommendation.
