*Job title*

Soft robotic gripper for industrial manufacturing

*Post duration*

12-month position for experienced researchers (PostDoc) - *Start: July 
15, 2015*

*Job description*

• Development of a novel robotic gripper based on soft robotics 
technologies for industrial manufacturing:

- Definition of the detailed list of requirements based on limitations 
of the current industrial gripper for the selected scenario

- Identification of the most suitable technologies for sensing, 
mechanisms and actuation

- Proof of concept by building simplified prototypes

- Iterative assessment of the gripper performances and optimization of 
the design

- Fabrication of the final device

• Organization of workshops for the Marie-Curie fellows of the SMART-E 
projects

• Management tasks related to SMART-E project

Additional information: You will be expected to undertake international 
travel with short stays in different partner institutes.

*Desired Profile of the Applicant*

• Highly motivated and innovative researcher

• English language proficiency (written and oral)

• Strong publication record

• Outstanding organizational skills, team work capability, self-motivated

• Management skills

*Desired Background and Knowledge*

• Experience with multi-physics simulators (e.g. Ansys, Marc, Abaqus)

• Experience with CAD software (e.g. ProE, Solid Works)

• Experience in using rapid prototype manufacturing technologies like 3D 
printing, laser cutting and elastomer molding

• Robotics, and mechanics

Note that prior knowledge in the field of soft robotics is not 
mandatory, but represents a strong figure of merit.

*What we offer*

We offer an exciting research opportunity at the cutting edge of 
robotics. You will work with top researchers from academia (University 
of Salford, University of Zurich, Italian Institute of Technology, 
Technical University of Munich) and you have the possibility to work and 
network with industrial partners like Festo, Shadow Robot, AGCO, and the 
Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre at the University of Sheffield.

You will get a very competitive salary and access to excellent facilities.
