    Postdoctoral Scholar - Neuromechanical simulation and exoskeleton gait assistance

    A postdoctoral research position with Dr. Seungmoon Song ( is available in the Mechanical Engineering at Northeastern University, Boston, MA. The position is for an initial period of two years with possibility of annual extensions thereafter.

    The main research project will be on developing and validating predictive neuromechanical simulations of young and older adults walking with ankle exoskeletons, funded by NIH NIA (R00AG065524, The postdoc will receive training, conduct research, write publications, and provide supplementary mentoring to Ph.D. students under Dr. Song's guidance and supervision. The position will also provide opportunities for close interactions with faculty and laboratories in human movement and rehabilitation robotics at Northeastern (

    Focus areas:
    • Neuromechanical simulation of human locomotion
      • Musculoskeletal simulation
      • Physics simulation and reinforcement learning
    • Gait experiment with assistive devices
      • Human subject experiment
      • Leg exoskeletons
      • Human-in-the-loop optimization
      • Statistical data analysis

    Minimum requirements:
    • Ph.D. in one of the focus areas listed above
    • Proficiency in Matlab/Simulink, Python, or C/C++
    • Effective communication skills
    • Scientific rigor
