Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Educational Robotics
The School of Engineering and Applied Science 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 required.
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.
