Two highly qualified postdoctoral fellows are sought for the following

(1) Robot Mechanics & Control - This position is to develop
mechanics-based models and control algorithms for surgical 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.

(2) Robot Sensing & Control - This position will involve developing the
control and sensing functionality for a set of promising clinical robotic
applications. Strong control, programming and system integration skills
are needed. The ability to work collaboratively with clinicians is also
important. It is expected that the successful candidate will hold a PhD in
engineering or computer science.

Our Lab's mission is to embed creative young engineers and scientists in
the #1 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 lab

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.
