The Harvard Microrobotics Lab is seeking a postdoctoral researcher for the development of origami-enabled structures, mechanisms, and robots that can transition between two and three dimensions. This will involve studies of materials, additive and subtractive manufacturing methods across a large range of scales, and the mathematics of origami. Goals include the development of design rules and CAD tools for origami-based structures and mechanisms and construction of a library of useful designs. We envision a wide scope of applications including novel manufacturing, self-assembling/deploying devices, and new robots. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, or a related field.

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 (1/1/13) and 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 and applications from women and underrepresented minorities are strongly encouraged.
