Postdoctoral position is available from Sept. 2019.
Position: The aim is to develop control algorithm to exploit our iiwa KUKA robot arm for active rehabilitation of the arm- hand in stroke/SCI patients. To this end an integrated hardware/ software is designed to bring the human in the control loop using bio signals. Using robots in rehabilitation have a lot of advantages. First of all it is possible to make the rehabilitation process evidence based. In other words because of recording all the motion and force data it is possible to provide effective indices as well as plots to show the progress of rehabilitation during the sessions. Moreover by using an interactive interface between the robot and the patient, the human can be brought in the control loop of the robot and thus trigger the neuroplasticity.
It is expected that the successful candidate will have the following qualifications:
- hold a PhD in Electrical, Mechanical or Computer engineering
- have experience in Robotics and Control
- Familiar with robotic control programming languages (ROS, Matlab, and C++)
- having local residency
Qualified applicants should respond by e-mail as soon as possible to Dr.
Hamid Sadeghian ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) with a description of their
qualifications, academic background, publications, career goals and
availability. The initial appointment will be for one year with the
possibility of extension.
The position is funded and the proposed starting is from Sept. 2019.
