  • Funded position in modelling neuromuscular disorders (Post-Doc / PhD), Tübingen, Germany

    Post-Doc / PhD position in modelling neuromuscular disorders (Biomedical Engineering / Biomechanics)
    We are currently seeking a highly motivated
    Researcher (f/m/d)

    We offer
    a funded researcher position for 12-36 Months in our project „Multi-level modelling of neuro-muscular disorders in locomotion“. The project has a strong basic research component and a clear application towards clinical gait assessment. You will collaborate in an interdisciplinary multi-center research group with clinicians and researchers. Your contribution will be focused on modelling and simulation of neuro-muscular control.

    Your contract should start in the first half of 2021. Salary will be based on previous experience.

    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) in Tübingen and the Departments for Orthopedic Surgery and Neurology at the Clinical Center Bayreuth, both in 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.

    Requirements core skills
    The ideal candidate should have
    • A background in biomedical engineering, physics, computational neuroscience, or closely related
    • a Masters (or equivalent) degree from a recognized university. Near completion can be considered;
    • Prior knowledge in multi body dynamics modeling, dynamical systems, system identification, learning, or optimization, is a plus;
    • Proficient programming experience in Matlab, C++, or similar
    • Prior experience with neuro-muscular or musculo-skeletal modeling is a plus;
    • Excellent grades and analytical skills;
    • Proficient oral and written English skills;
    • Outstanding candidates with different backgrounds are encouraged to apply

    Please apply by November 2nd to our graduate school:

    You will need to submit the usual information (Cover letter, CV, transcript of records) along with two letters of references which have to be submitted directly via the online portal. Make sure to contact respective peers and supervisors in time.
