[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] NIH-affiliated Postdoc, Engineer, PhD Student Positions: Design and Control of Wearable Robots and Soft Robots at City University of New York
The Biomechatronics and Intelligent Robotics Lab at the City University of New York (https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://haosu-robotics.github.io/__;!!LIr3w8kk_Xxm!_AReiLIxexZmOYFPKVGe5Vstcq27bd4ioJ1mESxyLJpQq7RfVr3MU6_RvYx1u47dbXfPSTwE$ ) is seeking post-doc fellows, engineers, and PhD students with Dynamics/Control/Learning OR Mechatronics OR Biomechanics expertise for applications in soft robots, wearable robots, and legged robots.
The postdoc position is in New York City and jointly affiliated with CUNY and National Institutes of Health (NIH). The lab is comprised of 5 postdocs, 5 PhD students, and engineers. We won the Innovation Challenge of Wearable Robotics Association and Toyota Mobility Challenge Discovery Award. Our work is published in Science Advances and Science Robotics.
The selected candidate will join a multidisciplinary research team to study high-performance motors, control of soft robots and legged robots in collaboration with CMU, Columbia University Medical Center, and several top medical schools in the United States. This is a great opportunity to pioneer research in a new generation of wearable, legged, and soft robot platforms to publish high-impact papers alongside several PIs who have expertise in mechatronics, computer vision, and machine learning.
- PhD in Mechanical, Electrical Engineering, Biomechanics, Robotics, Computer Science, or related areas including
- Strong hands-on experience
- Dynamics and control of robotic systems, including soft, wearable, humanoid, or legged robots
- Machine learning, reinforcement learning, and learning-based control
- Mechatronics design of wearable robots, soft robots, humanoid, legged robots. Experience in actuator design, cable transmission, hydraulics, or pneumatics is a plus
- Biomechanics, gait analysis, kinematics/kinetics analysis
- Strong interpersonal and organizational skills needed to participate as a creative member of a growing research team.
PhD students can be admitted in 2021 fall (application deadline Feb 2021).
PhD students will receive tuition scholarship and stipend support. Students are not required to have GRE or TOEFL scores.
