Research Activities  

Research Assistantships 

A multidisciplinary research team at Michigan State University is looking for a Ph.D. student who will be responsible for modeling, system identification, and control design of human (neuro-)musculoskeletal systems using the data collected from various human subject experiments. The RA position will be funded by an MSU NIH center: Systems Science Center for Musculoskeletal CAM Therapies. See more detail information on the project at the following links:

The Ph.D. student must have a strong background in system identification and control theory with a motivation on the biomedical project. A student with additional prior exposure to biomechanics, convex optimization, and machine learning is highly valued. The selected student will start from either Fall 2014 or Spring 2015 in mechanical engineering at MSU. Please contact and send your CV to Professor Choi (via email) for the open RA position.
