Two postdoc openings in soft wearable robotics at Harvard
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 two immediate openings in the areas of design and evaluation of soft wearable robots to assist with mobility (position 1) and manipulation (position 2). Previous experience in robotics, electro-mechanical design, wearable robotics, human/robot locomotion (position 1) and manipulation (position 2) are highly desirable. Strong organizational skills, creativity, motivation, and communication (oral and written) ability required. More details on the soft exosuit and soft robotic glove project can be found on our lab website (http://biodesign.seas.harvard.edu).
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>
