  Postdoc position in DEVELOPMENT OF INTERACTIVE LOCOMOTION -- Rome, Italy

A postdoctoral position is available in the research group led by Yuri 
Ivanenko (y.ivanenko at hsantalucia.it) in the Laboratory of Neuromotor 
Physiology of the Santa Lucia Foundation in Rome, Italy, to conduct 
studies in the area of human interactive locomotion. The postdoctoral 
researcher will be involved in a new interdisciplinary project 
(CogIMon), funded by the H2020 program of the European Union, aiming at 
a step change in human-robot interaction. The consortium comprises 
leading robotics, computational neuroscience, and human motor control 
European research groups.

Research will be focused on investigating human sensorimotor strategies 
for coordination and control of human-human interactive locomotion 
including agents of different sizes (children, adults). Experiments will 
be conducted to understanding the acquisition of locomotor patterns when 
in physical contact with others.

Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. in a relevant discipline, a real 
interest in development of human locomotion and sensorimotor control, 
and strong quantitative and programming skills. Experience with 
collection and analysis of experimental data, online data 
processing/control, and modeling of sensorimotor processes are valuable 

Salary will be commensurate with experience. Applicants should provide a 
statement of research interests, a curriculum vitae, and contact 
information for references. The position is available starting on April 
1^st 2015 and open until filled.
