  • Postdoctoral Researcher, Exoskeleton Gait Experiments, Stanford University (Stanford, CA, USA)

    A team of faculty at Stanford University, including Professors Karen Liu, Steve Collins, Scott Delp and Leo Guibas, is developing intelligent wearable robotic devices intended to improve balance for individuals with physical impairments. We are looking for outstanding individuals to join our team and collaborate on research topics that include:
    • Physical human-robot interaction
    • Balance control for human locomotion
    • Human-in-the-loop optimization
    • The effects of aging on motor control

    Funding is available for two years. This postdoc will be primarily advised by Steve Collins and co-advised by Karen Liu and Scott Delp. In addition to working on the above topics, the postdoc will have the opportunity to build an interdisciplinary scientific network, participate in mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students, present their work at international scientific meetings, and develop other skills to prepare them for a faculty position.

    The ideal candidate for this position would have:
    • A PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Kinesiology, Robotics, or a related field
    • Experience with exoskeleton hardware and software development
    • Experience with gait biomechanics data collections
    • Experience with objective and subjective assessments among patient groups

    Interested applicants should send an email or letter indicating their interest and experience, a CV, and two representative publications to:

    Stanford University is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer, committed to increasing the diversity of its workforce. We encourage applications from women, members of minority groups, veterans, persons with disabilities, and others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research and teaching mission.
