  • Ph.D. student vacancy in EU-training and mobility of researchersnetwork project NEUROS

    Dear colleagues

    Included I send you a vacancy announcement for a Ph.D. student position =
    at the Institute for Biomedical Engineering, University of Twente (3 =
    years) and University of Aalborg (1 year)
    in the area of "muscle dynamics in neuromuscular prostheses".

    This Ph.D. student project is part of the network project NEUROS, =
    subsidized by the European Union as part of the Training and Mobility of =
    Researchers program.
    In order to stimulate mobility of researchers, this program requires =
    that only foreign researchers from within the European Union can be =
    employed under this program.

    We would like to fill in this vacancy as soon as possible.

    Please post this vacancy announcement in your group and bring it under =
    the attention of potential candidates.
    Also, please spread it to anyone who may be interested or could spread =
    the vacancy announcement further.

    Thank you very much for your help

    Sincerely Yours

    Peter H. Veltink
