  • Postdoc Research Associate - Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Engineering Lab @ NC State

    Are you interested in improving the way amputees control prosthetic devices?

    The Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Engineering Laboratory (NREL) at the UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to help advance an exciting new upper limb prosthesis control platform based on a musculoskeletal model. You should have a recent PhD degree in Biomechanical, Mechanical, or Electrical Engineering or related fields. Research experience in musculoskeletal modeling and dynamic simulation, EMG measurement, signal processing, pattern recognition, machine learning, and/or motor control is highly desirable.

    This is a great opportunity to work in a highly multidisciplinary research lab. Here in NREL at NC State, we investigate the control mechanism of neuromuscular systems in normal and neurologically-disabled individuals, develop advanced neural-machine interfacing technologies, and apply these techniques toward neural control of prosthetics, orthotics, computers, and other assistive devices. As a researcher in our joint department, you will have excellent opportunities to leverage and expand on our existing collaborations with faculty at both NC State and UNC-Chapel Hill, and with clinicians at the UNC School of Medicine. We are located in the vibrant Research Triangle Region, one of the fastest growing tech regions in the US.

    Interested candidates are encouraged to submit a curriculum vitae, a 1-page research statement, selected publications, and three references. To learn more about our research or to submit an application, please contact us:
