the University of Lübeck has 1open PhD position in the area of robotics, in
particular in the clinical applications of neuroscience.
The position is part of the PhD programme at the Graduate School for Computing
in Medicine and Life Sciences (www.gradschool.uni-luebeck.de). The PhD position
is funded for 3 years with a scholarship of 1250 EUR per month, with possible
„Evaluating spatial and temporal correlation between electrophysiological
signals and involuntary motion”:
Robotic interventional systems are used to compensate for undesired patient
motion. While fixation or sedation of the patient will inhibit voluntary
motion, involuntary motion is harder to control. This research project aims at
determining the temporal and spatial correlation between electrophysiological
signals, and involuntary motion of the patient as well as live 3D tracking
