PhD students (E13, 50%)

10.11.2017, Wissenschaftliches Personal

Carry out research projects and publish in neuromuscular and sensorimotor control. Topics could involve motor learning and adaptation, impedance control, reflex modulation. Help to train and supervise Masters students. Contribute to the teaching of the faculty.

The Neuromuscular Diagnostics team at the Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences is recruiting up to two PhD students (E13, 50%) starting earliest February, 2018 for the duration of the PhD project. We are seeking up to two highly creative and motivated doctoral students to join the Neuromuscular Diagnostics team at the Technical University of Munich. Our research examines the computational principles of sensorimotor control. Specifically how the sensorimotor system learns to control the complex dynamics of the body when interacting with the world. We use custom-built robotic interfaces that generate forces on the arm in a precise state-dependent manner to produce novel dynamics or to simulate physical objects that participants interact with. We couple this with virtual reality interfaces allowing precise control of vision of the environment in order to probe the computational principles of sensorimotor control. See our webpage at: www.nd.sg.tum.de Tasks:  Carry out research projects and publish in neuromuscular and sensorimotor control. Topics could involve motor learning and adaptation, impedance control, reflex modulation.  Help to train and supervise Masters students.  Contribute to the teaching of the faculty. Requirements:  Masters degree in an area relevant to this research (e.g. Physiology, Neuroscience, Engineering, Kinesiology).  Programming skills, experience with electromyography, robotics and/or other relevant experimental skills are an advantage.  Highly motivated, meticulous individual with a passion for human motor control. We offer  A salary (50% TV-L E13, actual pay depends on experience).  The possibility to develop your academic career in Munich; a city renowned for its quality of life, combining an international environment, culture and the beautiful outdoors. The Technical University of Munich aims to increase the percentage of women. Qualified women are encouraged to apply. Disabled individuals will be chosen if training and suitability are equal to other candidates. Part time work is possible. (Die TU München strebt eine Erhöhung des Frauenanteils an, qualifizierte Frauen werden deshalb nachdrücklich aufgefordert, sich zu bewerben. Schwerbehinderte werden bei ansonsten im Wesentlichen gleicher Eignung und Qualifikation bevorzugt. Die Stellenbesetzung ist grundsätzlich auch in Teilzeitbeschäftigung möglich) Interested? Please e-mail a letter of up to 2 pages (to explain motivation, suitability and research interests) and a CV of up to 3 pages to Prof David Franklin at david.franklin@tum.de. The deadline for the application is 22.12.2017. Prof. Dr. David Franklin; Technical University of Munich; Georg Brauchle Ring 60/62; 80992 München, Germany
