A 3-year PhD student position in Neurobotics (Computational Neuroscience) is
open at LNRS/CNRS UMR7060, University Paris Descartes starting from January
2009, in the framework of a French national research project (ABILIS /
ANR-08-CORD-001-05) entitled "Bio-inspired approaches for intelligent object
handling and gripping". The project is based on the conception and
realization of a 5-finger artificial hand in collaboration with 5 other
partners (LMS/CNRS UMR 6610 / University of Poitiers; LISV/Paris; LIST/CEA
/Paris; ISIR/UPMC Paris; FATRONIK France SAS, Montpellier). The robot hand
will alternatively be driven both by conventional and non conventional
actuators. The PhD work concerns i) the study of neural mechanisms
responsible for grasp and object dependent manipulation and ii) the
application of biologically inspired sensory motor control schemes on the
new 5-finger artificial hand under the supervision of Prof. Marc Maier and
Assist. Prof. Selim Eskiizmirliler.  The use of both synthetic and real
control signals (e.g. cortical activity recorded in monkeys) will be


A strong background in programming (C++, Matlab, PERL, etc.), in nonlinear /
linear control systems and in digital signal processing obtained at
under-graduate and/or graduate levels, as well as the ability of working
under different operating systems (Windows, Linux, MAC, etc.) is requested.
For more information on the project, on the previously published articles
and on other administrative details please contact Dr. Selim Eskiizmirliler
at the following address, if possible with the abstract of your Ms Thesis.
During the recruitment period your Ms Thesis supervisor (or your M1 and/or
M2 fellowship supervisors in France) might be contacted.
