PostDoc and PhD positions in Wearable and Surgical Robots at the City University of New York
The Biomechatronics and Intelligent Robotics Lab (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__haosu-2Drobotics.github.io&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=nXkPGenH3TVi5F_D1YB_0XeyDP389_hxOFCzLvUmP4M&s=LSvtH1BP9dnbK6lEmcf1hX8c04mOGOFDbG5zLFg6ygY&e=) at the City University of New York, City College is seeking full-time post-doc fellows and PhD students in wearable and surgical robots. The selected candidate will join a multidisciplinary research team and will collaborate closely with physical therapists and surgeons at Cornell University, Harvard University, and several other top medical schools in the United States.
Postdoc Position #1: Mechanical design of wearable robots and surgical robots. Experience in actuator design, cable transmission, series elastic actuators, electric motors, or pneumatics is a plus.
Postdoc Position #2: Developing force and position control algorithms for our wearable robot and soft bi-manual humanoid robot. Experience in impedance control and haptics is a plus. This is a great opportunity to pioneer research in a new generation of wearable and humanoid robot platforms alongside several PIs who have expertise in mechatronics, computer vision, and machine learning.
The successful postdoc candidate will be offered a fixed-term contract (12 months) with a highly competitive salary, commensurable with qualifications and experience. PhD students can be admitted in Fall 2018. PhD students will receive tuition scholarship and stipend support.
** About the lab and City University of New York **
The Biomechatronics lab was established in 2017 and is a 1000 sq ft facility with the latest generation motion capture system, state of the art physiology measurement devices, cameras, IMUs, motor motion control systems, and more. The lab is a vibrant workplace; students can work on a diverse set of projects, conduct hands-on experiments, and publish high-quality papers.
The candidates can work with our Zahn Innovation Center, a startup incubator that has helped create $6M in startup revenue and over 100 internships for students. They can also work with the New York Center for Biomedical Engineering (NYCBE), a consortium of New York City medical research institutions established in 1994 to serve as a focal center for collaborative biomedical engineering research in the New York metropolitan area. Partner institutions include Columbia University, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York University, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Located in Manhattan, CCNY is as diverse, dynamic, and visionary as New York City itself.
