The Harvard Biodesign Lab invites applications for an immediate opening on a research project focused on biomechanical, physiological, and clinical evaluations of wearable robotic devices developed to assist individuals with neurological disorders (e.g., stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and cerebral palsy). These soft wearable robots are lightweight and pliable and apply appropriately timed joint torques to the wearer. The successful candidate will work as part of a larger team of engineers, apparel designers, movement scientists, and clinicians to conduct human subjects studies that will be used to advance the development of multiple wearable robot platforms and evaluate their ability to enhance neurorehabilitation. They will have access to state of the art equipment (Qualysis cameras, Bertec force plates in an over-ground walkway, a Bertec instrumented treadmill, Delsys Trigno surface electromyography system, and Cosmed K4b2 metabolic test system). The candidate will also be expected to contribute to the writing and running of IRB-approved studies on healthy and patient populations.

The candidate should have a strong interest in contributing to multidisciplinary teams and will be expected to publish scholarly papers and attend international conferences, as well as take on a mentorship role for undergraduate and graduate students.

A Ph.D. in Biomechanics, Kinesiology, Movement Science, Physiology, Biomedical Engineering or a related field.

A strong background in statistics, as well as previous experience in human subjects studies with wearable robots and working with neurological patient populations are highly desired. Additionally, having a PT background and being eligible for physical therapy licensure in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts would be a plus.

How to Apply

Application materials include an updated CV, a cover letter describing research interests and goals, a full list of publications, and up to three relevant scientific papers. Please submit the names and contact information for up to three references. Applicants can apply online at https://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/10113.

We strongly encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions or any other characteristic protected by law.
