Postdoc Opening in Soft Robotics at Harvard Biodesign Lab
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 an immediate opening in the areas of design, fabrication and control of soft robots for cardiac and locomotion applications in collaboration with Children's Hospital Boston. It is expected that mechanical design, mechatronics, and control will be key features of the research. Previous experience in robotics and medical device design is highly desirable. Strong organizational skills, creativity, motivation, and communication (oral and written) ability required.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, Robotics, or a related field and a proven track record of high quality publications. The candidates should have a strong interest in contributing to multidisciplinary teams (engineers, computer scientists, physiologists, bioengineers and clinicians) and will be expected to 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).
Applications should be sent to Conor Walsh, walsh at seas.harvard.edu<mailto:walsh at seas.harvard.edu>
