The Harvard Microrobotics Lab is currently seeking multiple postdoctoral researchers in the areas of Soft Robotics, Printable Robots, and RoboBees. Soft Robotics is the use of active soft materials for new elastomer-based sensors and actuators, thereby enabling new capabilities for autonomous and wearable robots. Printable Robots is a project in collaboration with MIT and UPenn, developing a new paradigm in rapid design and manufacturing of custom robots. Finally, RoboBees is an ongoing project at Harvard creating a colony of autonomous robotic bees. Topics of interest to the RoboBees project include novel sensors, integration of power and control electronics, and continued work on flight control. 

All positions are guaranteed for one year with a possible one year extension subject to performance and continued funding. Applicants should hold a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science, or a related field.

Candidates should send a cover letter indicating which position they are applying to, a brief description of their background and career plans, a CV, and the names and contact information for at least three references. These documents should be submitted as a single pdf attachment 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.
