The Biorobotics Lab of the National University of Singapore (NUS) is
seeking postdoctoral researchers with a strong background in rehabilitation
robotics to develop advanced control systems for robotic gait therapy.
Candidates should have expertise in physical human robot interaction,
biomechanics of human walking and dynamic systems modelling.

Our Lab is developing novel rehabilitation robotic systems to provide gait
training for individuals with neurological impairments. Our systems include
lower-limb exoskeletons and a robotic walker for overground gait training.
Detailed information about the Biorobotics Lab people and research can be
found at


The candidates’ research will focus primarily on (a) exoskeleton and walker
control algorithms for accelerated relearning of gait function, (b)
bio-inspired compliant and force-controllable actuators with variable
impedance, and (c) neuromuscular models of walking gait in impaired

These positions are project-funded. Salary will be internationally
competitive and commensurate with experience. Interested candidates should
send an application package including a CV with two external references and
a letter of accomplishments, motivation and career goals to Prof. Haoyong
Yu (bieyhy at nus.edu.sg).
