    PhD Position on Modeling and Optimization of Motions in Orthopedics

    The Optimization in Robotics & Biomechanics group at the
    Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) at the University
    of Heidelberg, Germany is seeking a PhD candidate for a research
    project on Modeling and Optimization of Motions in Orthopedics with a
    focus on either
    - Stability and balance control of human walking or
    - Prosthesis modeling.
    The thesis will be performed in cooperation with Dr. Sebastian Wolf of
    the division Movement Analytics at the Orthopedic University Hospital
    Heidelberg.

    Requirements:
    - diploma or masters degree in engineering, mathematics, physics,
    computer science, biomechanics or biology
    - ideally experience in numerical mathematics, in particular in
    optimization and optimal control, mechanical modeling /multibody
    dynamics, and programming skills
    - motivation to work in an interdisciplinary project

    The successful applicant will be financed by a scholarship of the
    Heidelberg Graduate School of Mathematical and Computational
    Methods for the Sciences (HGS MathComp) which is funded
    by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) within the Excellence
    Initiative. The scholarship is 1436 Euro per month (tax free; duration
    36 months). All doctoral students are integrated into the education
    program of the Graduate School.

    Please send your application, including a statement of motivation,
    curriculum vitae, copies of university certificates, list of attended
    classes and grades, and names and addresses of two references to:
