  • Postdoc/PhD/Intern Control/Biomechanics of Wearable Robot City University of New York

    The Biomechatronics and Intelligent Robotics Lab ( at the City University of New York (CUNY), City College is seeking post-doc fellows (available now), PhD students, and funded interns (available now) with Control and Biomechanics expertise in the areas of wearable robots, and legged robots. The postdoc position will have an appointment with both CUNY and Cornell University. The lab won Toyota Mobility Challenge Discovery Award, TechSAge Design Competition finalist, and $50K Zahn entrepreneurship competition. The selected candidate will join a multidisciplinary research team to study high performance electric motors, design soft wearable robots and legged robots in collaboration with professors, physical therapists and surgeons at Cornell University and several top medical schools in the United States. This is a great opportunity to pioneer research in a new generation of wearable, soft, and legged robot platforms alongside several PIs who have expertise in mechatronics, material science, computer vision, and machine learning.

    Focused area #1: Biomechanics of wearable robots, humanoid, or legged robots. Experience in motion capture analysis, Visual3D, inverse dynamics is a plus.

    Focused area #2: Force and position control of wearable robots and legged robots. Experience in mechatronics and design is a plus.

    PhD students can be admitted in 2019 Spring (preferred) or 2019 Fall. PhD students will receive tuition scholarship and stipend support. Interns will receive stipend support.

    ** About the lab and City University of New York **
    The Biomechatronics lab was established in 2017 and is a 1500 sq ft facility with the latest generation motion capture system, state of the art physiology measurement devices, cameras, IMUs, high performance motors, and more. The lab is a vibrant workplace; students can work on a diverse set of projects, conduct hands-on experiments, and publish high-quality papers.

    The candidates can work with our Zahn Innovation Center, a startup incubator that has helped create $6M in startup revenue and over 100 internships for students. They can also work with the New York Center for Biomedical Engineering (NYCBE), a consortium of New York City medical research institutions established in 1994 to serve as a focal center for collaborative biomedical engineering research in the New York metropolitan area. Partner institutions include Columbia University, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York University, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Located in Manhattan, CCNY is as diverse, dynamic, and visionary as New York City itself.
