Research Fellow (E13)

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 PhD students and other researchers that use the laboratory. Contribute to the teaching of the faculty and to grant applications.

The Neuromuscular Diagnostics team at the Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences is recruiting a Research Fellow (E13) full time, starting at the earliest Feb 2018. We are seeking a highly creative and motivated postdoctoral fellow to join the Neuromuscular Diagnostics team at the Technical University of Munich. Our research examines 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 PhD students and other researchers that use the laboratory.  Contribute to the teaching of the faculty and to grant applications. Requirements:  PhD in an area relevant to this research (e.g. Physiology, Neuroscience, Engineering, Kinesiology).  A strong, relevant publication record.  English writing and oral presentation skills.  Programming skills in Matlab and/or C are preferable.  Relevant experimental skills for studying human motor control. We offer  A competitive salary (TV-L E13, actual pay depends on experience).  An exciting research project in sensorimotor control at the Technical University of Munich  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 contract will be extended on a year-to-year basis with satisfactory performance. 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 3 pages (to explain motivation, suitability and career plans) 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,
