Three open positions in human robotics at Imperial College London

At the human robotics group at Imperial College London ( we use an integrative approach of neuroscience and robotics to investigate human sensorimotor control, and to design efficient human interface science and technology.
Our current research themes are:
 - human movement augmentation (see Mehring et al. Nature Communications 2019, Eden et al. Nature Communications 2022)
- haptic communication between humans and with robots (Takagi et al. 2017 Nature Human Behaviour, 2019 eLife; Ivanova et al. 2020 IEEE OJEMB)
- game theory-based interaction control (Li et al. Nature Machine Intelligence 2019)
- social rehabilitation network (with
- data-driven neuromechanics modelling (within
We have 3 open positions (2 postdocs and 1 PhD). For 1 PhD and 1 postdoc the work would involve computation modelling within one of these themes.  The other postdoc position is to develop research and applications in human movement augmentation or multilimb rehabilitation using the unique MUVE system, see

Suitable backgrounds may be in physics, robotics, computer science and related engineering fields, such as computational modelling and mechatronics. 

Interested candidates should send an email to "" with title "PhD HRG: <your name>" or "postdoc HRG: <your name>", 1-2 paragraphs to explain your interest for this position, and a CV. Questions on these positions can also be addressed in this way.
I look forward to your application!
