I am seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Researcher position in lower limb
exoskeletons/orthoses at Yale University. Applicants should have expertise
in a number of the following areas: biomechanics of human walking,
electromechanical hardware development and evaluation, rehabilitation
robotics, and dynamic systems/control. Extensive experimental experience is
strongly preferred. Excellent written and spoken English skills are
essential. Research Engineers with the relevant background will also be
considered.



Work for the advertised position will involve some combination of theory,
simulation, design, hardware development, and experiment. More information
about recent work can be found at: http://www.eng.yale.edu/grablab/



I am deeply committed to a strong mentoring relationship with my lab group
and creating a fun, exciting, and productive work environment. In addition
to technical areas associated with the research project, successful
applicants can expect to gain experience in grant writing, student
supervision, and project management, as well as develop strong ties to the
academic and industrial rehabilitation community in the Northeast US. Within
Yale, our lab has close interaction with the research group of Prof. John
Morrell, a lead developer of the Segway Human Transporter whose research
centers on Human-Machine Interaction.



Interested applicants should send a CV describing their relevant background,
skill set and career goals, along with three references and any other
relevant information to Prof. Aaron Dollar (aaron.dollar@yale.edu).
