CCR01/P1006: Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Cognitively Assisted Locomotion
Center for Cybernics Research
University of Tsukuba, Japan
The Center for Cybernics Research is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work in the group of Cognitively Assisted Locomotion (Dr Kenji Suzuki), a cognitive neuroscience approach to assisted locomotion. We provide new insights into the control of a exoskeleton robot based on the analysis of human locomotion. We are working together with a research group of exoskeleton robot (Robot suit HAL, Prof. Yoshiyuki Sankai), the spin-off company, Cyberdyne Inc, and a cognitive neuroscience research unit (College de France, Paris).
The desired research area includes robotics, cognitive neuroscience, control, cyber-physical system and physical human-robot interaction. Experience in the analysis of human locomotion will be an added advantage.
Applicants should send a cover letter briefly describing their
background and career plans, a CV, and the names and contact information for at least two references. Please also include possible contribution to this project. The position is available immediately and is guaranteed for two years, with possible extension to a maximum of four years depending on achieved results.
These documents should be submitted as pdf attachments to:
