PhD Positions in Design and Control of Wearable Robots, City University of New York, City College
We invite applications for several Ph.D. positions in the Biomechatronics and Intelligent Robotics Lab of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the City University of New York, City College (CCNY). Ph.D. students will work with Prof. Hao Su to design and develop control algorithms for soft wearable robots and surgical robots. The projects include high-performance actuator modeling and control, soft wearable robots for rehabilitation, vision-guided robots for minimally invasive surgery, and etc. Our work is in collaboration with Cornell University, Harvard University and several top medical schools in the United States. The candidates can work with our Zahn Innovation Center, a startup incubator that has created $6M startups' revenue and 100 internships and the New York Center for Biomedical Engineering (NYCBE). NYCBE is a consortium of New York City medical research institutions established in 1994 to serve as a focal center for collaborative biomedical engineering research in the New York metropolitan area. Partner Institutions include Columbia University, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York University, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Located in Manhattan, CCNY is as diverse, dynamic and visionary as New York City itself. Applications (assembled as a single PDF file) should contain a CV, a list of publications, all transcripts, and copies of up to five relevant scientific papers. Applications should be emailed to Hao Su (hao.su at ccny.cuny.edu).
Position #1 Design: Mechanical design of soft robots, including wearable robots for patients with impairments and steerable surgical robots. Experience in actuator design, cable transmission, series elastic actuators, electric motors, or pneumatics is a plus.
Position #2 Control: Developing force and position control algorithms for our soft exoskeleton robot and soft bi-manual humanoid robot. Experience in impedance control and haptics is a plus. This is a great opportunity to lead a new research direction on a new generation of wearable robot and humanoid robot platforms with several PIs who have expertise in machine design and control systems.

About Prof. Hao Su
