  • 2 Ph.D. vacancies: ambulatory VR technology for training of humanmotor control (University of Twente, the Netherlands)

    The University of Twente, Institute for Biomedical Technology, Enschede,
    the Netherlands

    VACANCIES
    2 Ph.D. student positions for Biomedical Engineers
    to develop ambulatory VR technology for training of human motor control

    The goal of the ExoZorg project is to develop technology for ambulatory
    training and assessment for human motor control in the home or work
    environment. Additionally, there is supervision of the training via a
    telematic link. This new technology will allow extra-mural training and
    assessment of motor control during daily activities in the daily
    environment during the whole day in stead of a few hours per week in a
    rehabilitation centre or physiotherapy institute. The responsibility of the
    UT is to develop onbody training and assessment systems for body balance
    and psychomotor functions. Responsible UT project leaders are Prof.dr.ir.
    Peter H. Veltink (Faculty of Electrical Engineering) and Dr.ir. Herman van
    der Kooij (Faculty of Mechanical Engineering).
    The project is subsidised by the Dutch Ministery of Economic Affairs
    (bureau SENTER) under the ICT breakthrough program. The project ExoZorg is
    coordinated by Roessingh Research and Development bv. (Dr.ir. Hermie J.
    Hermens).

    Responsibilities
    The two Ph.D. students will develop technology for ambulatory training and
    assesment of balance and psychomotor functions. This will be based on
    models of human motor control, virtual reality applications, applying
    onbody sensing and feedback. The developed methods will be evaluated
    against a human performance laboratory, including balance perturbation and
    evaluation systems.
    You will work in a multidisciplinary team of researchers, technical
    developers and clinicians from Universities, rehabilitation clinic and a
    large IT company. This requires working according to planning in a project
    team.

    Profile
    You are an excellent and enthusiastic scientist with creative ideas and an
    interest in clinical questions. Preferably, you are an Electrical,
    Physical, Information or Mechanical Engineer or a technically knowledgeable
    Movement Scientist. You have good writing and verbal skills in the English
    language. Especially for the project of training psychomotor functions it
    will be an advantage when you have good programming skills. You have
    affinity with multidisciplinary cooperation and are able to work according
    to planning in a project team.

    Offer
    4 year UT Ph.D. student (AIO) employment, starting in June 2002.

    Information:
    Interested candidates can contact Prof.dr.ir. Peter H. Veltink
    (P.H.Veltink@el.utwente.nl; tel. x31-53-4892765) or Dr.ir. Herman van der
    Kooij (H.vanderKooij@wb.utwente.nl; tel. x31-53-4894779). Please send a
    short cv and short motivation statement.
