Job Openings in Rehabilitation Robotics and Intelligent Interaction: (1 Research Assistant Professor Position, 2 Postdoc Positions, 1 Research Assistant Position, and 1 PhD candidate position)

The NeuroRehabilitation Robotics Lab of Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) is seeking researchers with a strong background in rehabilitation robotics to develop advanced control systems for robotic therapy. Candidates should have expertise in physical human robot interaction, biomechanics of human walking and dynamic systems modelling.

Our Lab is developing novel rehabilitation robotic systems to provide physical therapy with intelligent interaction for individuals with neurological impairments. Our systems involves brain signals, eyes’ motion, bilateral human limbs, robotic system with haptic feedback, which work together for optimal robot-assisted physical therapy.

These positions are project-funded. Salary will be internationally competitive and commensurate with experience.
