  • Postdoc, Human-Exoskeleton Performance, G. Sawicki, NC State/UNC-CH. (Raleigh, USA)

    Prof. Greg Sawicki and the NC State/UNC Chapel Hill Human Physiology of Wearable Robotics (PoWeR) Laboratory seek a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in human locomotion neuromechanics and energetics to work on projects evaluating muscle-level response of humans to lower-limb exoskeletons during walking and running.

    The ideal candidate will have specific expertise in combining experimental gait data including measurement of muscle-tendon dynamics (e.g. via ultrasound imaging) with computational modeling/simulation (e.g. OpenSim) approaches. Experience with biomechatronic system maintenance and design would also be a plus.

    The desired start date is ~July 2016, renewable for up to 3 years based on yearly performance reviews.

    More information about our group and approach can be found at:

    Additional project information is available upon request.

    If you are interested, please send an email with your CV, brief statement of interest, and a few representative publications to Greg Sawicki,
