Applications are invited for a PhD scholarship at the Laboratory of
Intelligent Systems, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland: http://lis.epfl.ch

The project will consists in the design, prototyping, and  
characterization of novel
types of robotic building blocks made out of soft, deformable  
structures that
can be assembled into multi-unit structures.

Candidates should have a degree in electrical engineering, micro- 
mechanical engineering, or material science with hands-on experience in
design of electronic circuits and possibly mechanical components.
Candidates must have a good command of spoken/written English language.

In order to be eligible for this position, candidates must be accepted  
by the
EPFL doctoral program in Manufacturing Systems and Robotics: http://phd.epfl.ch/page55511.html
