The Harvard Biodesign Lab at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Harvard University invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow positions in the areas of control and biomechanical evaluation of soft wearable robots to assist with locomotion. This work will be part of the DARPA funded Warrior Web program. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Robotics or Mechatronics and with experience in wearable robotics, locomotion, human physiology and biomechanics preferred.

The positions will be highly collaborative and the candidate should have a strong interest in contributing to multidisciplinary teams (engineers, computer scientists, physiologists, bioengineers and clinicians).  The postdoctoral fellows will be expected to explore applications for their work, publish scholarly papers and attend international conferences, as well as take on a mentorship role for undergraduate and graduate students.

Applications, assembled as a single PDF file, should contain a complete resume, cover letter describing research interests and goals, full list of publications, copies of up to three relevant scientific papers, as well as the names and contact information of three references (expected to provide letters of recommendation). Harvard University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged.

Applications should be sent to Conor Walsh walsh at seas.harvard.edu<mailto:walsh at seas.harvard.edu>
