*The Robotics and Mechatronics Laboratory *at Koc University (Istanbul,
Turkey) invites applications for post-doctoral fellowship within the scope
of “CoCirculation2” program of Turkish Scientific and Technological Research
Council (TÜBİTAK). CoCirculation2 is a 5-year program aiming to invite
experienced researchers to both academic and non-academic research
performing organizations located in Turkey. Within this context, 100
experienced researchers of any nationality who wish to engage in incoming
mobility and to implement a research project in Turkey will be able to apply
for a fellowship.
Koç University is an endowed, non-profit institution of higher education,
located in Istanbul, Turkey. Founded in 1993 by the Vehbi Koç Foundation,
its mission is to produce the most capable graduates by providing a world
class education, to advance the frontiers of knowledge and to contribute to
the benefit of Turkey and humanity at large. KU is spread in a main campus,
a separate university hospital campus and two smaller locations in Istanbul.
Currently, the university is ranked among the top three universities in
Turkey in terms of the number of international research publications per
faculty member per year, based on publications in peer-reviewed journals
listed by the Institute of Scientific Information (ISI). In 2018, KU was
ranked 40th in the world among “top 100 universities younger than 50” by
Times Higher Education.
*The Robotics and Mechatronics Laboratory (RML) *at Koc University, led by
Prof. Cagatay Basdogan, conducts interdisciplinary research in the areas of
man-machine interfaces (in particular haptics), control systems,
mechatronics, robotics, biomechanics, physics-based modelling and
simulation, 3D computer graphics, and virtual reality technology. Currently,
the group is hosted on a dedicated lab space of 120 meter square and
consists of 1 postdoctoral researcher, 10 PhD and 2 MS students with mixed
educational backgrounds in engineering.
