  • Research Position - University of Jena, Germany

    Wednesday, October 17, 2007, 11:56 AM


    Two research positions are available at the University of Jena,
    Germany.

    1. The Locomotion Laboratory (www.lauflabor.de) at the University of
    Jena is currently seeking a PhD or Postdoctoral candidate to work on a
    new project on sensor-motor integration as well as motor-coordination
    problems towards solving complex robotic tasks such as bipedal
    walking. This work will be done in close collaboration with the
    Bernstein Centre for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) at the
    University of Göttingen, and will complement previous work performed
    at the BCCN on the RunBot, a fast biped robot (Manoonpong et al., PLoS
    CB, July 2007). The ability of this robot to adapt to novel situations
    using a multi-layered neural control structure has created quite a
    stir in the press and on the Internet. Information on this research
    can be found at: http://www.bccn-goettingen.de/Groups/GroupCN.


    2. The Locomotion Laboratory at the University of Jena is also seeking
    a PhD or Postdoctoral candidate to work on a running gait generation
    and gait stability project within the framework of the “Intelligent
    Walking” focus programme of the German Research Foundation
    (www.dfg.de/en). This research is aimed at the transfer of concepts
    from biomechanics and motion control to walking and running machines.


    Both openings will allow the successful applicant to develop his/her
    own line of research. Hence applicants with an existing research plan,
    which fits the above scenarios, are strongly encouraged. Good
    programming skills are absolutely essential and we are especially
    interested in candidates with expertise in electronic and/or
    mechanical hardware design.

    Please send your application before November 30, 2007, including CV, a
    brief motivation letter, copies of university certificates,
    publication list, research interests/plan, and contact information for
    at least 2 references to: Dr. A. Seyfarth (oas@uni-jena.de),
    Dornburger Str. 23, 07743 Jena, Germany.
