PhD position in Programming of bodily human-robot interaction

SDU’s upcoming interdisciplinary Trinity lab invite applications for a fully-funded position as PhD fellow in the field of software frameworks for  physical interaction with training robots. The position is available starting 1. December 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. The application deadline is 1. November 2020.

Bodily human/robot interaction (BHRI) is a vital subject in future robotics, as robotic devices become ever more entangled in our workplaces and daily lives. BHRI is already highly relevant to e.g. rehab robotics, and is expected to become a driving factor in collaborative industrial-, service- and social-robotics. As the process of bodily interaction is a chain of mechanical, physiological and social actions and reactions, a trans-disciplinary approach is required, in order to advance the field beyond it’s current state.

What we offer
The PhD fellow will be part of a trans-disciplinary team, consisting of 3-5 PhD fellows and 5-10 senior researchers, dedicated to developing feasible bodily human/robot interaction in the context of SDU’s work on training-robots.

We offer a challenging and innovative position, in an international, stimulating and highly interdisciplinary environment that forge new research by crossing the traditionally separate domains of engineering-, health- and humanistic research, for the benefit of the users and society as a whole.

Project description
The PhD fellow is to collaborate with peers and senior colleagues in the  research project: Bodily and Robotic Interaction: A Transdiciplinary Concept of Rehabilitation Training (BARI). BARI is aimed at development, implementation and test of robot programming methodologies that support scenarios where existing rope-pulling training robots can be programmed for effective and motivating physical training with a variety of users, including users suffering from cerebral paresis.

The process of physical training combines motion and force. With an interactive training robot, motion and force can be controlled based on physical interaction with the user, rather than for assuming complete control of the force and motion. This interaction directly influences physiological benefits and the experience of bodily interaction. Human physiotherapists adapt training based on the specific needs of each patient and the daily fitness. For robots to be useful training partners that provide physiological benefits and the experience of interaction, they must be similarly adaptable to the individual patient and their daily fitness.

The goal of this project is to develop software that allows the therapist to design interactive training programs for robotic devices, in a way that can support the patients’ specific needs and progression of training. A therapist must effectively become the programmer, using their insight and expertise to design interactive and adaptable robot programs dedicated to the needs of the individual patient. Such an approach can neither rely on conventional programming languages nor automated systems based on artificial intelligence, but must target a sweet spot in between, where the therapist is in control of the robot without needing to specify unimportant details. Although highly flexible, the programming system must also ensure a safe and predictable interaction with the patient. The design of the system will be based on collaboration with experts in both training physiology and bodily interaction, and will explore how the human physiotherapist can control the robotic interact with humans during exercise, using the challenges and realities of Cerebral Paresis (CP) as a primary case.

What we expect
You have a master’s degree (equivalent to a Danish master’s degree) in computer engineering, computer science or similar, where:

  • you have formal qualifications in the development and implementation of programming languages, concepts or paradigms, combined with an interest to apply this to robotics and bodily interaction.

OR

  • you have formal qualifications in experimental robotics, combined with an interest in learning development of user driven programming paradigms, in the scope of bodily interaction with robots.

Furthermore, the candidate must have the following qualifications:

  • Interest in close trans-disciplinary collaboration with PhD fellows and senior researchers that investigate Bodily Human/Robot Interaction from the standpoints of biology and social interaction, in order to merge these perspectives into your own work.
  • Interest in participating in developing and testing concepts and equipment that will assist people with performing effective physical training.

Postdoc in Molecular Endocrinology and Stem Cell Research

The Department of Clinical Research, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Southern Denmark (SDU) and the Molecular Endocrinology Unit (KMEB), Department of Medical Endocrinology, University of Southern Denmark, invites applications for a postdoctoral position to study Stromal Cell Heterogeneity in Osteoporosis using Advanced Functional Genomics. The position is available for 3 years. The starting date is November 1st 2020 or at the selected candidate’s earliest convenience.

Job description

Alexander Rauch has recently established his own research group which is founded through a major grant from the Lundbeck Foundation. We combine experimental and computational systems approaches to obtain unprecedented insights into the heterogeneity of bone marrow resident progenitor cells that give rise to bone forming osteoblasts. Our group is part of the Molecular Endocrinology and Stem Cell Research Unit at the Department of Endocrinology, Odense University Hospital which constitutes an international, ambitious, highly dynamic, and well-equipped working environment. The Unit has access to clinically relevant patient material and state-of-the-art facilities for stem cell phenotyping, flow cytometry, bioimaging, immunohistochemistry and transgenic mouse work. Strategic research alliances have been established with the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at SDU for next generation sequencing, single-cell transcriptomics, metabolomics and mass spectrometry. Our goal is to understand how these stromal cells receive and respond to signals at the level of the (epi)-genome and how changes in the composition of progenitor subpopulations contribute to the pathology of metabolic bone diseases.

As a postdoc in the group you will be one of the main drivers of this highly ambitious and interdisciplinary project. You will interact and collaborate closely with other researchers from the Molecular Endocrinology and Stem Cell Research Unit, headed by Moustapha Kassem, and Functional Genomics and Metabolism Research Unit, headed by Susanne Mandrup. You will map stromal cell heterogeneity of the human bone marrow during homeostasis and longitudinally in patients with osteoporosis using single cell transcriptomics and computational approaches. Based on these data you will establish a FACS-based isolation procedure for distinct subpopulations that will be tested for their bone forming potential in ectopic bone formation and fracture models. Some of these findings will be translated into clinical intervention studies or into functional studies in transgenic mouse models. You are expected to provide substantial general input to projects in our groups, and you will have the opportunity to develop your own ideas within our research frame.

Qualifications

We are looking for highly motivated, dedicated and ambitious scientists with:

  • A PhD degree in Life or Medical Science, preferable Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedicine, Endocrinology or Computational Systems Biology

PhD research fellow in chronic inflammatory diseases

A position as PhD research fellow is available in the Department of Molecular Medicine, University of Southern Denmark, Odense and at the University Hospital of Southern Jutland, Aaabenraa, within the following PhD project: “Prognostic factors and personalized medicine in chronic inflammatory diseases (CID); a prospective cohort study on factors predicting treatment response (BELIEVE)“. The position is to be filled by September 1, 2019 or soon thereafter. Application deadline: July 29, 2019.

PhD enrolment at the Faculty of Health Sciences, SDU, is a prerequisite for the employment.

You will be the principle person for coordinating the activities between the hospital departments for the recruitment and planning the research activities. You will be affiliated to the Department of Molecular Medicine and the University Hospital of Southern Jutland experiencing both a hospital research as well as a university research environment. You will be part of a small, ambitious, research team with various backgrounds (molecular biology, doctor, nurse, health research). You will be in close contact with other PhD students.

SUMMARY AND AIM OF PROJECT

Chronic inflammatory diseases (CID) are frequently treated with biologic medications, specifically TNF inhibitors ). These medications inhibit the pro-inflammatory molecule tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α, which has been strongly implicated in the aetiology of these diseases. Up to one-third of patients do not, however, respond to biologics, and lifestyle factors are assumed to effect treatment outcomes. The aim of this PhD project is to identify lifestyle factors and biomarkers that may help improving treatment outcome.

Methods and analysis:

This prospective cohort study will enrol 320 CID patients who are prescribed a TNFi between June 2017 and March 2021. Included among the CID patients will be patients with inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), rheumatic disorders (rheumatoid arthritis, axial spondyloarthritis, psoriatic arthritis), and inflammatory skin diseases (psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa). Patients will be investigated at baseline (pre-treatment) and 2, 6, and 14-16 weeks after treatment initiation. Clinical information includes patient-reported outcome measures, clinical assessments of disease activity, quality of life, and lifestyle, in addition to registry data on comorbidity and concomitant medication(s). Biological sample include blood, urine, faeces, intestinal biopsies. For each disease, evaluation of successful treatment response will be based on established primary and secondary endpoints, including disease-specific core outcome sets. Investigated covariates are: diet, including meat and fibre intake, and selected inflammatory biomarkers.

Statistics:

We will explore whether any of the covariates help the clinicians to predict who will respond to therapy by using logistic regression.

Ethics and dissemination:

The study is approved by the Ethics Committee (S-20160124) and the Danish Data Protecting Agency (2008-58-035). Study findings will be disseminated through peer-reviewed journals, patient associations, and presentations at international conferences.

Grant number for the SYSCID project is 733100.
