Re: Open position for Postdoc / Visiting Scholar at the Reconfigurable Robotics Lab

The Reconfigurable Robotics Lab (RRL) http://RRL.epfl.ch at Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne (Swiss Institute of Technology, EPFL) has open positions for a Postdoc and/or visiting scholar.

At the Reconfigurable Robotics Lab, we focus on design, actuation, fabrication, and control of unique robotic systems. The research in the lab is committed to inventing interactive robotic systems with novel fabrication techniques and integration processes that push the limits of mechanical properties.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Robotics, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, Electrical Engineering, 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, neuroscientists, 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. The candidate will be involved heavily in designing and prototyping a soft robotics based under-actuated multi-DoF bodice with controllable impedance. Hands-on experience in prototyping and experimental robotics would be a major asset.

Interested candidates should send an email (jamie.paik at epfl.ch) with the subject heading "Postdoc / visiting scholar position at RRL 2014" (email filters automatically) with a CV, lists of recent publications, and references.
