A post-doctoral research position is available at the University of
Jena Lauflabor Locomotion Laboratory (www.lauflabor.de) to work on
biologically inspired walking ma-chines. This research will involve
evaluation of existing technical models, development and optimization
of walking machines based on data of human gait from experiments and
simulations, as well as validation of technical systems utilizing
motion analysis. The successful candidate will furthermore support and
supervise graduate students in ongoing projects on concepts, design
and testing of legged robots, trunk stability in bipeds and technical
support of experimental setups.

The opening will allow the successful applicant to develop her/his own
line of research. An existing research plan, which fits the above
scenario, is largely appreciated. We are looking for candidates with
expertise in electronics and/or mechanical hardware design. Good
pro-gramming skills are essential and strong interest in biology and
biomechanics is highly desirable.

Review of applications will begin immediately. Please e-mail your
application including CV, a brief motivation letter, publication list,
research interests, and contact information of at least 2 professional
references to Dr. A. Seyfarth (oas@uni-jena.de).
