4 Postdoc/PhD Positions at Interface of Neuroscience & Robotics (Imperial College London)

Department of Bioengineering
4 postdoc or Ph.D. positions at the interface of Neuroscience and
We have recently received funding from the EU-FP7 for four positions
to investigate how humans physically interact and adapt their control
to perform efficient manipulation.

Ideal candidates will have a strong background in robotics/
mechatronics, physics, control, or neurophysiology,
neurorehabilitation or fMRI.. They should have potential for excellent
research and the capability to collaborate within an
interdisciplinary research group with people from all these
disciplines. They should be highly motivated to use robotics and
control techniques for tackling fundamental issues in motor control/
learning, or in the rehabilitation after neurological disorders.
Applicants for a postdoc position should have obtained, or be about
to obtain, a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. Applicants
for a Ph.D. position should have an MSc degree, although exceptional
candidates with a BSc degree will be considered. Applicants with a
bursary or a fellowship who want to participate in this research are
also welcome.
Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine (http:// is a leading technological university with a
global reach and Neurotechnology has been selected as a strategic
development area.. The Human Robotics group at Imperial College
( carries out research
at the interface of robotics and neuroscience, from
neurophysiological studies and computational modelling to robotic
implementations, VR-aided neuro-rehabilitation and assistive devices.
Enquiries about these positions or applications can be made to
Etienne Burdet (, adding the title ‘Human Robotics Position’
and your name as the subject of your email..
To apply please submit a CV, a brief expression of interest
describing why you are interested by this position and you qualify
for it, the names of suitable referees, and scans of your academic
transcripts should be sent to
