  • Postdoctoral Fellow in Robotics/Biomechanics at the VA Hospital, Seattle, WA, USA

    The Department of Veterans Affairs Rehabilitation Research & Development Center of Excellence for Limb Loss Prevention and Prosthetic Engineering (Seattle, WA) has a position open for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in biomechanics and robotics. The appointment will be made through the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Washington. The candidate will work at the Veterans Affairs Hospital under the guidance of Dr. Aubin.

    This position requires a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Biomechanics, Robotics, Mechatronics or a related field. The candidates should have a strong interest in working with multidisciplinary teams (engineers, orthopeadic surgeons, clinicians, biomechanists, physical therapists, bioengineers, etc.) and will be expected to publish scholarly papers, attend conferences, assist with grant writing, as well as mentor undergraduate and graduate students. The major responsibility of the successful applicant will be to conduct scientific research within one of the following areas:

    1.) Wearable lower limb robotics.
    2.) Rehabilitation robotics.
    3.) Gait analysis, biomechanics, and rehabilitation.
    4.) Biomechatronics
    5.) Lower limb prosthetics

    Interested candidates (U.S. citizens only) should send an application, assembled as a single PDF file, consisting of a motivation letter (explaining research interests, goals, and qualifications), a CV with full list of publications, two or three relevant publications, and the email addresses of two reference (expected to supply letters of recommendation) to Patrick Aubin paubin@uw.edu. Applications will be processed as they arrive until the position is closed. The position is for 1 year, with an option to renew. The expected start date is summer 2014.
