We are seeking highly qualified postdoctoral fellows for the following
projects:

Robotic Catheters ­ (Two fellows) This project involves creating novel
robotic catheters to perform valve repair procedures. Important components
of this project include the development of modeling and control
algorithms, the design and integration of multi-modal sensing and tools as
well as system evaluation through animal trials. Experience in medical
robot modeling and prototyping is preferred. It is expected that the
successful candidates will hold a PhD in engineering, physics or computer
science.

Robotic Implants - (Two fellows) This project involves creating robots
that reside inside the body to modulate physiological functions, e.g.,
through application of forces or control of flow rates. Strong prototyping
and system integration skills including real-time control are needed.
Experience in medical robotics is a plus. The ability to work
collaboratively with clinicians is also important. It is expected that the
successful candidates will hold a PhD in engineering, physics or computer
science. 

Our Lab¹s 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

Qualified applicants should respond by email as soon as possible to Prof.
Pierre Dupont (Pierre.Dupont at childrens.harvard.edu) with a description of
their qualifications, academic background, PhD thesis, publications,
career goals and availability. They should specify which position they are
interested in and include pdf¹s of up to 3 publications. Initial
appointments will be for one year with the possibility of extension.
Postdoctoral appointments will be made through Harvard Medical School.
