Two highly qualified postdoctoral fellows are sought for NIH-funded

Postdoctoral Fellow (Robot Design & Control) - This position will involve
designing and controlling robotic solutions for a set of promising
clinical applications. Strong design and control skills are a must along
with system integration experience. The ability to work collaboratively
with clinicians is also important. It is expected that the successful
candidate will hold a PhD in mechanical or electrical engineering and have
experience in CAD and the supervision of machining and rapid prototyping.

Postdoctoral Fellow (Robot Mechanics) - This position is to develop
mechanics-based models and algorithms for the design and control of
continuum robots. Strong mathematical and analytical skills are needed. It
is expected that the successful candidate will hold a PhD in engineering,
physics or computer graphics and have experience in robot kinematics,
dynamics and control.

Our Lab's mission is to embed creative young engineers and scientists in
the top US pediatric hospital. This ensures that we work on clinically
important problems and enables us to rapidly transition engineering
prototypes to a clinical setting for testing. More information on our
projects can be found at:

Qualified applicants should respond by email as soon as possible to Prof.
Pierre Dupont (Pierre.Dupont at childrens.harvard.edu) with a description of
their qualifications, academic background, PhD thesis, publications,
career goals and availability. The initial appointments will be for one
year with the possibility of extension. Postdoctoral appointments will be
made through Harvard Medical School.
