Yale University - Postdoc Position in Active Structures


I am seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Researcher position related to
investigating a novel class of active mechanical structures built from a
large number of small robotic "cells". Applicants should have expertise in a
number of the following areas: electromechanical hardware development,
analog electronics design, active material actuators, modular robotics, and
systems and control. Additional desirable skills include wireless power
systems, digital electronics design, and distributed systems. Extensive
fabrication and experimental experience is strongly preferred. Excellent
written and spoken English skills are essential. 


The position will involve some combination of theory, simulation, design,
hardware development, and experiment. More information about other work
going on in the lab can be found at: http://www.eng.yale.edu/grablab/


I am deeply committed to a strong mentoring relationship with my lab group
and creating a fun, exciting, and productive work environment. In addition
to technical areas associated with the research project, successful
applicants can expect to gain experience in grant writing, student
supervision, and project management, as well as develop close ties to the
academic and industrial robotics community in the Northeast US. 


Interested applicants should send a CV describing their relevant background,
skill set and career goals, along with three references and any other
relevant information to Prof. Aaron Dollar (aaron.dollar at yale.edu).
