PhD scholarship in Digital Twin in Healthcare: Patient System Modelling for Rehabilitation by Exoskeleton

The Department of Technology, Management and Economics at DTU-Technical University of Denmark invites applications for a 3-year PhD position in rehabilitation by exoskeleton, funded by the Horizon2020 EU project called ReHyb - Rehabilitation based on hybrid neuroprosthesis. This includes an active exoskeleton that allows flexible training and mobility of the stroke patients plus active control through functional electrical stimulation (FES). Such hybrid systems are advantageous because the users’ own muscular activity initialises the movements. The PhD position will design and use a Digital Twin within this context.

The PhD position will be based in the Innovation Division and specifically in the research section Engineering Systems Design. The Engineering Systems Design section is characterised by a vibrant and supportive research environment with engaged staff and strong research collaborations with leading universities and industry worldwide. Our research focuses on understanding and improving the ways in which complex socio-technical engineering systems are designed and managed throughout their life cycles. We have a number of health innovation research projects and are members of the Copenhagen Center for Health Technology (

The deadline for application is May 3rd 2021. The full position and all details can be seen here.
