Edited: Jun 11

 

Are you fascinated by how exoskeletons can assist persons with spinal cord injury to walk again? Are you passionate about developing new control algorithms to improve the stability of exoskeletons? Within a Dutch national program on Wearable Robotics, the University of Twente is looking for a PhD candidate on a collaborative project to improve the stability, versatility and speed of walking for people with a spinal cord injury wearing an exoskeleton. The PhD candidate will work on the intersection between control, human-machine interaction, wearable robotics and clinical application. The PhD position is offered by the the department of Biomechanical Engineering of the University of Twente. This PhD position will give you a unique opportunity to develop next generation control algorithm for exoskeletons to effectively support balance control during walking. These control algorithms should allow persons with spinal cord injury to walk in exoskeletons without using crutches. You will develop (model-based) algorithms to mimic human balance strategies, implement these algorithms in the available exoskeletons (e.g. Symbitron exoskeleton) and evaluate the effectiveness of these algorithms.  More information about the position, requirements, our offer and application procedure can be found here.

    Buenas! Me he graduado este año en la UPC en ingeniería biomédica y tengo bastante claro hacia donde quiero enfocar mi futuro pero no se como hacerlo. Me gustaría especializarme hacia el procesado de imagen para mejorar el diagnóstico de pacientes, añadiendo a esto la inteligencia artificial para dar aplicaciones mas exactas y fiables. Mi pregunta es, ¿Qué máster tanto dentro como fuera de España me podría especializar hacia esta rama? ¿Sería mejor que realizase un máster en inteligencia artificial o informática y me especializase después en la medicina o existe alguno especifico de este campo? Muchas gracias.
