We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to create robots
that reside inside the body to induce tissue regeneration and to modulate
physiological functions. Strong design, prototyping and
system integration skills including real-time control are
needed.Experience in surgical robotics and animal experiments is
preferred. The ability to work collaboratively with clinicians is also
important. It is expected that the successful candidate will hold a PhD in
engineering, physics or computer science.
Our Lab's mission is to embed creative young engineers and scientists in
the #1 US pediatric hospital. This ensures that we work on clinically
important problems and enables us to rapidly transition engineering
prototypes to a clinical setting for testing. More information on our lab
can be found at: http://robotics.tch.harvard.edu
