The Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Iceland invites applications for a full time tenure-track faculty position. Applications from candidates in all research areas are welcome; however, we are especially interested in electrical power engineering, electronics, computer engineering, and medical engineering. Work duties are divided into research (40%), teaching (48%) and management (12%).
The primary objective for the prospective student is to identify and quantify target-user needs from a prosthetic device for high functioning individuals with above knee amputation. Factors to identify include those relevant for improved physical function, and the users preferences for proposed intent control and sensory feedback, while considering safety, metabolic cost, and cognitive load. The project is a collaboration between the Department of Physical Therapy, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, and Össur Inc. The project is funded by the Össur and Ottobock Research Trust Fund for three years.
