*(Immediate opening for Spring 2016 is available if conditions meet--see

The Assistive Robotics and Tele-Medicine (ART-Med) Lab. in the Biomedical
Engineering Department at the George Washington University has two funded
GRA openings from Spring/Fall 2016. This is a newly founded laboratory at
the heart of DC, in the proximity of NSF, NIH, DARPA, FDA, etc. The
research themes include assistive robotics, human-robot interaction,
machine learning, and tele-medical robotics. We are seeking highly
motivated and talented students to work on interactive robotic frameworks
and mobile manipulation tasks.

1. Music-based Interactive Robotic Orchestration for children with ASD
2. Telepresence robotic interaction for assistive tasks and aided perception

- Good understanding and knowledge in robotics, control systems, and AI.
- Excellent programming skills (C/C++, Python, Java, C#, etc.)
- Experience with mobile computing (iOS/Android)
- Knowledge in diverse fields such as music, psychology, or rehabilitation
  be a plus

General guideline of admissions to Ph.D. program can be found in
http://www.seas.gwu.edu/apply-admissions (admissions)
and http://www.gwu.edu/biomedical-engineering (dept. specific
Applicants should hold a M.S. degree in biomedical engineering, electrical
and computer engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, or a
closely related field to robotics and bioengineering.

*Immediate opening for Spring 2016 is available if you do not require I-20
processing, and applications for Fall 2016 is under review.

To apply, please contact Dr. Chung Hyuk Park (chpark at gwu.edu) with a
