    Multi-Level Modeling in Motor Control and Rehabilitation Robotics, University of Tübingen, Germany

    We are currently seeking a highly motivated
    Researcher (female/male)

    We offer
    a funded researcher position for 6 to 12 Months in our project „Multi-level modelling of neuro-muscular disorders at the wrist“. Further extension may be possible.

    The focus of this project is on computer simulation of the upper extremity with focus on dynamic work place task. The project has a strong basic research component and a clear application to work place ergonomics. The entire project incorporates model development, experimental data acquisition and analysis in ultrasound, MRI, and EMG. Depending on your interests and qualifications, you can contribute to all or some of the aspects of the project.

    Your visit should start early in 2019. Salary will be based on previous experience according to a TV-L E13 50% to 65% position, which is approximately 1250 to 1550 Euro/Month (after taxes).

    About us
    The project is a collaboration between the group Multi-Level Modeling in Motor Control and Rehabilitation Robotics at the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research (HIH) and the Institute of Occupational Medicine, Social Medicine and Health Services Research at the University of Tübingen, Germany. We offer an excellent research infrastructure with a tight collaboration of research and clinics, national and international interdisciplinary cooperations with experts from Biomechanics, Biology, and Medicine.
