The Movement Control Rehabilitation Laboratory (www.mocorelab.com) in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology has an opening for a full-time PhD student to start in the Fall 2018 or Spring 2019.
The individual will contribute to research that investigates sensorimotor control mechanisms underlying neuromuscular disorders and innovative rehabilitation solutions including better user control of assistive devices that restore function.


Methods will include virtual-reality training for improved hand function and simulation-based control of exoskeletons for gait restoration.


Key skills utilized in this work include understanding of biomechanical control systems, neuromuscular physiology, clinically-relevant force and motion capture experiments, Matlab/Simulink/C/LabView programming, and effective written and oral communication.

Stevens Institute of Technology is located in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA. Hoboken is a vibrant, walkable urban community with direct access to New York City. See www.hobokennj.gov/visit/ for more information.


Interested individuals should contact Prof. Raviraj Nataraj (Director of MOCORE Lab) at rnataraj@stevens.edu and attach a resume/CV. If mutual interest is established, an application to the PhD program at Stevens-BME will be required next.
