*Open Biomechanics & Robotics Positions*
The Lauflabor Locomotion Lab (www.lauflabor.de 
at the Technical University Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt) invites highly 
talented candidates to apply for *PH.D. STUDENTS* with strong interests 
in one the following research topics:

·Bioinspired legged locomotion

·Biomechanical modeling of legged systems

·Robot control

·Neuromuscular modeling of biological locomotor systems

·Soft robotics

Students and researchers from the areas of robotics, mechanical 
electrical and computer engineering including system design and control, 
biomechanics and learning are welcome to apply. The candidates are 
expected to conduct independent research and at the same time contribute 
to ongoing projects in the areas listed above. Successful candidates can 
furthermore be given the opportunity to work with undergraduate and 
M.Sc. students.

*Available Ph.D Position*
Currently there are PHD positions available in a DFG granted project
