  • Robotics + biomechanics: Seeking post-docs and phd students

    The Robotics and Human Control Systems (RHCS) Lab at Oregon State
    University has PhD student and post-doctoral positions available
    immediately. The focus of the work will be to augment or restore human function in manipulation and locomotion tasks by designing implantable mechanisms. The mechanisms will improve the transmission of forces and movements between muscles and tendons or bone. Two representative papers on this topic of "Re-Engineering the Human Musculoskeletal System from Within" on the topic are available at this link:
    (Trans. Biomedical Engineering and Hand journal)

    Given the highly interdisciplinary nature of the work, the ideal
    candidate should have experience in most or all of the following:
    Biomechanics (OpenSim)
    Mechanical design (SolidWorks)
    Kinematics, statics, and dynamics analysis
    Fabrication and rapid prototyping (3D printing, CNC milling)
    Experimental validation using robotic testbeds and measurement (force
    sensors, motion capture)
    Human and animal cadaver experiments
    Conducting live animal experiments
    Biomaterial selection

    The post-doctoral fellow position is expected to last two years.
    Interested parties should email Dr. Balasubramanian
    ( one PDF file with the following
    information in the specified order.
    1) CV that includes GPA, papers published, and projects participated in
    2) Three paragraph description of your background, your interests, and
    why this project is a good fit (maximum one page)
    3) GRE scores (including percentile scores) if you are seeking a PhD
    4) Transcripts if you are seeking a PhD
    The email subject line should begin with “Responding to ad:”.

    The RHCS lab is housed within OSU’s robotics program, which offers a
    robotics PhD and is the largest robotics program on the US west coast.
    Information on the robotics program is available at Information on the RHCS lab director
