  • PhD position at Bioengineering Group - CSIC

    The Bioengineering Group of Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas
    at Madrid, seeks

    - One PhD student for research in the field of rehabilitation robotics.

    The applicant will work within the HYPER project, designing exoskeletons
    that can be beneficial for diverse rehabilitation practices. The candidate
    must develop the following tasks:

    1. Mechanic design and development of exoskeleton structures for
    physical rehabilitation. This general goal includes the following tasks:
    1.1. Design and simulation of mechanic components in CAD
    1.2. Optimization of mechanisms compatible with human
    movement in different applications.
    2. Design and development of an experimental platform for validation of
    partial actuation components integrated in exoskeletons. This goal includes
    the following tasks:
    2.1. Evaluation of actuation technologies for specific
    rehabilitation applications.
    2.2. Analysis of functional actuation requirements by means
    of available biomechanical models.

    The ideal candidate will hold a degree in mechanical engineering and have
    good background in systems theory, and algorithms, as well as programming
    skills in C++, and Matlab.

    The position is to be filled immediately. More information on the
    Bioengineering Group and HYPER Project is available at the following web

    Applicants are requested to send a CV, a statement of intent and the names
    of two references to the address below (and by email) before Nov. 12. 2010
