Postdoc in Prosthetic Hand Design, Yale University
I am seeking applicants for Postdoctoral Researcher for a project involving
the development of an underactuated prosthetic hand. The approach and
underlying principles for the project are aligned with prior work on
underactuated hands done in the lab, with more information about prior work
able to be found at: http://www.eng.yale.edu/grablab/
The specific nature of the project primarily involves the mechanical design,
fabrication, and laboratory testing of a series of hand prototypes, with
eventual testing on amputee subjects. Accordingly, applicants should have an
extensive background in mechanisms, mechanical design, and fabrication, with
prior experience with human subjects a plus. Excellent written and spoken
English skills are essential.
I am deeply committed to a strong mentoring relationship with my lab group
and creating a fun, exciting, and productive work environment. In addition
to technical areas associated with the research project, successful
applicants can expect to gain experience in grant writing, student
supervision, and project management, as well as ties to industrial partners.
Interested applicants should send a CV describing their background, skill
set and career goals, along with any other relevant information to Prof.
Aaron Dollar (aaron.dollar at yale.edu).
