The Institute for Robotics and Cognitive Systems (www.rob.uni-luebeck.de) at the University of Lübeck has open PhD position in the area of robotics, in particular in the clinical applications of neuroscience.
The position is part of the PhD programme at the Graduate School for Computing in Medicine and Life Sciences (www.gradschool. uni-luebeck. de). The PhD position is funded for 3 years with a scholarship of 1250 EUR per month, with possible increase.
`Evaluating spatial and temporal correlation between electrophysiological signals and involuntary motion`: Robotic interventional systems are used to compensate for undesired patient motion. While fixation or sedation of the patient will inhibit voluntary motion, involuntary motion is harder to control. This research project aims at determining the temporal and spatial correlation between electrophysiological signals, and involuntary motion of the patient as well as live 3D tracking modalities.
For further information, please contact Prof. Dr. Achim Schweikard (schweikard[at]rob.uni-luebeck.de).
A full application consists of:
(1) a detailed CV
(2) a statement of motivation
(3) 2 reference letters
(4) degree certificates and grade transcripts.
Please, submit your application via email to rieckhoff[at]rob.uni-luebeck.de.
The application deadline is May 15, 2010. The ideal starting date is June 1, 2010 (or as soon as possible after that date).
