 *** Postdoc opening in micro-scale, bio-inspired impulsive mechanisms at
University of Maryland

The Maryland Micro Robotics Lab invites applications for an immediate
postdoc opening in the areas of design, analysis and synthesis of small
scale bio-inspired impulsive mechanisms (e.g. jumping micro robots!).
Previous experience in robotics, dynamics, microfabrication, MEMS, and
electro-mechanical design are highly desirable but not all are required.
Strong organizational skills, creativity, motivation, and communication
(oral and written) ability *are* required. More details on other lab
projects can be found on our website (http://mrl.umd.edu).

Candidates should have a strong interest in contributing to and
collaborating with multidisciplinary teams (engineers, biologists,
materials scientists) 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 CV
with a full list of publications, cover letter describing research
interests and goals, copies of up to three relevant papers, as well as the
names and contact information of three references (expected to provide
letters of recommendation).

Applications should be sent to Sarah Bergbreiter, sarahb at umd.edu.
