The CMU Soft Machines Lab is accepting applications for a postdoctoral appointment in the areas of soft-matter robotics and assistive wearable technologies.  The postdoctoral researcher will lead efforts to develop soft multifunctional materials that will function as “artificial” skin, nervous tissue, and muscle for sensing and actuation.  This project combines emerging methods and technologies in conductive elastomers, soft lithography manufacturing, and rapid prototyping. 
We are particularly interested in candidates with hands-on experience in microfabrication and/or robotics.  Please send your CV, contact information for three references, and a one-page cover letter to cmajidi at andrew.cmu.edu.  This is a one-year appointment with an October 1, 2014 start date (negotiable) and possibility for annual renewal. 
The Soft Machines Lab is affiliated with Carnegie Mellon’s Department of Mechanical Engineering and Robotics Institute.  To learn more, visit us at http://sml.me.cmu.edu.
