IIT Ropar invites applications from the Indian nationals for the position of Post-doctoral Fellow (PDF) to work in a DRDO CARS project, entitled “Kinematic Modelling and Task-based Synthesis of Lower-Limb Exoskeleton for Defense Services” under the supervision of undersigned.
The short-term project focusses at two major objectives – Kinematic modelling and workspace analysis of existing human-exoskeleton system, and Gait-data-based optimal synthesis of hybrid architectures for leg-exoskeleton.
Essential Qualifications: PhD degree (submitted/defended) in related field’, and good academic record with atleast 60% marks (or 6.5 CGPA) in B.Tech/BE and Masters degrees. Exposure in Robot Kinematics is must.
Desirables: A candidate with ‘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.
DEBEL is involved with design and development of various life-support systems and biomedical devices for soldier’s lifesaving and augmentation. Augmentative exoskeletons are expected to improve the operational efficiency of the soldiers. Exoskeleton design and development encounter many challenges, including ergonomically acceptable wearing technology, architecture design, human-motion compatibility, humanrobot interaction etc. To emulate natural human motion along with the exoskeleton, it is important to have a kinematic model to understand the requisite configuration for a given task of the human coupled with exoskeleton.
