[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PhD Position Available - Movement Control Rehabilitation (Stevens Institute of Technology, start Fall 2017)

rnataraj
The Movement Control Rehabilitation Laboratory (www.mocorelab.com) in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology has an opening for a full-time PhD student to start in September 2017.  

The individual will contribute to research that investigates sensorimotor control mechanisms underlying neuromuscular disorders and innovative rehabilitation solutions. Methods will include simulation-based control of exoskeletons for gait restoration and virtual-reality therapy for improved hand function. Key skills to be developed with this work include understanding of biomechanics, clinical experience, Matlab/Simulink/C/LabView, and effective communication.
   
The position is fully-funded for two years. Additional funding will be sought via available intramural and extramural sources.

Stevens Institute of Technology is located in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA. Hoboken is a vibrant, walkable urban community with direct access to New York City. See www.hobokennj.gov/visit/ for more information.

Interested individuals should first contact Prof. Raviraj Nataraj at rnataraj@stevens.edu, and be prepared to provide a resume/CV. If mutual interest is established, an application to the PhD program at Stevens-BME will be required next.
