JOB POST: Post-Doctoral Fellow (Under DRDO Funded Project) at IIT Ropar [Montly Salary Rs. 55k]: Apply by June 15


Applications are invited from the Indian nationals for the position of Post-doctoral Fellow (PDF) to work in a DRDO CARS project with contract number DEBEL/20CR0003/BMT/19-20, entitled “Kinematic Modelling and Task-based Synthesis of Lower-Limb Exoskeleton for Defense Services” under the supervision of undersigned.

The short-term project focusses on two major objectives – Kinematic modeling and workspace analysis of the existing human-exoskeleton system, and Gait-data-based optimal synthesis of hybrid architectures for leg-exoskeleton.


Post-Doctoral Fellow (01)

Job Responsibility
  1. The research work will focus on the development of a generic kinematic model of the human coupled exoskeleton system which could be divided into two phases.
  2. The first phase involves task-based kinematic modeling and workspace analysis for different architectures of exoskeleton configurations and to identify well-conditioned zones for working.
  3. The second phase consists of the development of a task-based configuration selection and optimal dimensional synthesis with comparative analysis, in general.
  4. Programming skills, mechanisms modeling and learning, and utilization of professional software are inherent job requirements.
  • Ph.D. degree (submitted/ defended) in related field’, and good academic record with at least 60% marks (or 6.5 CGPA) in B.Tech/ BE and Masters degrees.
  • Exposure to Robot Kinematics is a must.
  • A candidate with a ‘Masters/ Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical/ Mechatronics’ would be preferred. Proficient in Programming skills as Matlab, C/ C++/ Python, and research experience in robotics or biomechanics field.

Rs. 55,000 per month (consolidated)
