  • Postdoc, Exoskeleton Design, Steve Collins, Carnegie Mellon (Pittsburgh, USA)

    Prof. Steve Collins and the Carnegie Mellon University Experimental Biomechatronics Laboratory seek a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in lower-limb exoskeleton design. The ideal candidate will have previously designed and built high-performance lower-limb exoskeleton, prosthesis or humanoid robotics hardware. The desired start date is July 2016, with a duration of three years.

    Our team uses versatile, tethered prosthesis and exoskeleton emulator systems to study human-robot interaction during locomotion with the aim of discovering new performance-enhancing features that can be incorporated into wearable robotic devices. More information about our group and approach can be found at This project seeks to establish a complete lower-limb exoskeleton emulator system with exceptional versatility and use it to identify new, optimal assistance techniques during walking and running. Additional project information is available upon request.

    If you are interested, please send an email with your CV and a few representative papers to Steve Collins,

    [This is a separate position from the gait biomechanics listing earlier this year, which has been filled. There will be a new opening for a postdoctoral researcher in gait biomechanics in the Fall of 2016.]
