Doctoral Scholarships Available

The Human Motion and Control program at Cleveland State University has opportunities for highly qualified and highly motivated doctoral students. Fully funded scholarships are available with an annual stipend of $25,000.

Students will work on topics in the area of human motion and control:

  • Control of powered exoskeletons
  • Design and control of powered prosthetic limbs
  • Musculoskeletal modeling and simulation
  • Optimal control and trajectory optimization for human-robot systems

The research program is supported by funding from the State of Ohio, the Parker-Hannifin Corporation, and the National Science Foundation.

Applicants should have a masters level degree in engineering, and experience in at least two of the following:

  • Musculoskeletal modeling and dynamics
  • Powered prosthetics and orthotics
  • Bipedal robotics
  • Mechatronics and controls
  • Software engineering (Matlab, Python, C/C++)

Students will interact with three faculty members: Dr. Ton van den Bogert (Human Motion and Control), Dr. Hanz Richter (Robotics) and Dr. Dan Simon (Control and Optimization).
