Dear robotics-worldwide organizers,
I am a researcher from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. We would like to publish a job advertisement. The information is:
Postdoc/Research Associate/Research Assistant Positions in Robotic Assistive Device Development at The Chinese University of Hong Kong
We are seeking highly-motivated researchers for the following project:
Development of A Robotic Rollator-Orthosis System for Mobility Augmentation and Eldercare
This project is funded by the Midstream Research Programme for Universities (MRP) from the Innovation and Technology Commission, Hong Kong. This project proposes an innovative solution to overcome the limitations of a conventional rollator or an active orthosis while maintaining the merits of both devices, therefore, helping the elderly individuals maintain the capability of moving around with their own lower limbs on the premise of safety and facilitate their health monitor and care in real time.
The Postdoc candidate should hold a PhD degree in engineering with a background in mechanical design and robotics control. The RA candidate should hold a Bachelor or Master degree in engineering with demonstrated experiences of mechanical design, motor control, or sensor development and signal processing.
Qualified applicants should respond by email as soon as possible to
