Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Educational Robotics

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University and
the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering invite
applications for a postdoctoral fellow position in the area of educational
robotics. We seek outstanding postdoctoral applicants to develop curricular
materials on topics such as introductory computer science, swarm robotics,
and embedded systems, for a variety of grade levels ranging from elementary
school through college. Hardware platforms to be used are developed
in-house and will include the "Kilobot" swarm system as well as other
robots currently under development. The fellow will work with educators and
engineers to design new robot platforms as well as specific lesson plans
and activities, and to bring about their adoption in classrooms. The ideal
candidate will have experience working with lesson design and pre-college
education as well as with user interfaces or other software development;
mechanical or electrical engineering experience is desirable but not

Applications, assembled as single pdf files, should contain a C.V., a cover
letter describing research interests and goals, a full list of
publications, copies of up to three relevant papers, and names and contact
information for at least three references (expected to provide letters of
recommendation). Applications should be sent to postdocs at wyss.harvard.edu.

Harvard University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and
applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged.
