*Postdoc opening in Reconfigurable Robotics Lab at EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne)

The EPFL Reconfigurable Robotics Lab has an open position for a postdoctoral researcher. The project will involve developing a new type of soft exoskeleton based on robotic origami designs. A PhD in Robotics, Mechanical Engineering, Mechanics, Materials or a related field is required. The successful candidate should bring experience, enthusiasm and dedication to the group. A strong drive to succeed in novel robotic design and fabrications and biomechanics research is essential. Relevant areas of expertise include: robot control, mechatronic design, system modeling.

However, candidates with experience in other areas of robotics, mechatronics are also welcome to apply.  The position is initially for one year, with the likely extension by mutual agreement. Applications should contain: a curriculum vitae (CV), full list of publications, copies of relevant publications, a letter (one-page maximum) describing their strengths for the research project, and names and contact details for three people who may be asked for references.
