    Postdoc(s) Positions in Neural Control of Prosthetics (Raleigh, North Carolina, US)

    Postdoc(s) Positions in Neural Control of Prosthetics
    UNC/NC State Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering

    The Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Engineering Laboratory (NREL) within the UNC/NC State Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering invites applications
    for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to advance robotic prosthetics. Currently, two positions are available immediately.

    Required Qualifications:

    A recent Ph.D. degree in Biomedical, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering or related fields.
    Research experiences in two or more of the following areas: intramuscular or surface EMG decomposition, analysis of motor unit action potentials,
    musculoskeletal modeling, forward dynamic simulation, control of wearable machines (e.g. prosthesis, orthosis, FES), advanced bio-signal processing,
    electrical stimulation of nerves/muscles.
    Excellent oral and written communication skills.

    Additional Preferred Qualifications:

    Experience in human-related experiments, human motor control and learning, embedded system design, mobile app development
    Programming skills (MATLAB, C++, LabVIEW etc.).
    Record of peer-reviewed publications.
    The NREL directed by Dr. He (Helen) Huang, Professor, Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, (
    This is a great opportunity to work in a highly multidisciplinary research lab. Here in the NREL at NC State and UNC-Chapel Hill, we investigate the control
    mechanism of neuromuscular systems in normal and neurologically disabled individuals, develop advanced neural-machine interfacing technologies, and
    apply these techniques toward neural control of prosthetics, orthotics, computers, and other assistive devices. Our lab website is at

    The NREL is part of the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at UNC-Chapel Hill and NC State University. The nationally ranked UNC Hospitals and
    School of Medicine at UNC-Chapel Hill provide an excellent clinical environment for trainees to gain experience in medicine, while the College of Engineering
    at NC State, one of the finest engineering and computer science schools in the world, offers state-of-the-art facilities for students and faculty engaged in vital
    areas of research and technology transfer. As a researcher in our joint department, you will have excellent opportunities to leverage and expand on our
    existing collaborations with faculty at both NC State and UNC-Chapel Hill, and with clinicians at the UNC School of Medicine. We are located in the vibrant
    Research Triangle area of North Carolina, one of the fastest growing tech regions in the US.

    Interested candidates are encouraged to submit a curriculum vitae, a 1-page research statement, selected publications, and three references. To learn more
    about our research or to submit an application, please contact Dr. Helen Huang at
