The Harvard Microrobotics Lab is searching for a postdoctoral  
researcher to work on the development of the mechanical components for  
a four-wing robotic insect. Topics of interest include resonant  
thoracic dynamics, aeromechanics of flapping, efficient actuation, and  
considerations for control. Applicants should have a PhD in mechanical  
engineering or related field. Experience with micro/meso fabrication  
is essential. Experience with materials, controls, and system-level  
design is a plus.

Applicants should send a cover letter briefly describing their  
background and career plans, a CV, and the names and contact  
information for at least three references. The position is open  
immediately (4/1/10) and is guaranteed for a year with a possible  
second year extension. These documents should be submitted as pdf  
attachments to Prof. Wood: rjwood at seas.harvard.edu

Harvard University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer
