Fully funded PostDoc opening in wearable soft robotics at Bristol

The University of Bristol and Bristol Robotics Laboratory invites
applications for an immediate postdoctoral research position in the area of
design and development of soft robotic wearable devices for physical assist
and rehabilitation.

The successful candidate will be part of a multi-disciplinary team from
seven leading UK research institutes, led by the University of Bristol, on
the new EPSRC-funded project “Wearable Soft Robotics for Independent
Living”. This project will develop wearable soft robotic technologies which
are needed for the next generation of healthcare, assist and rehabilitation
devices. These include smart clothing that is easy to put on and comfortable
and which will give power assist to people as their move about their daily
lives. These technologies are targeted at people with disabilities and
elderly people. Power assist will be through the development of novel soft
robotic actuators, sensors and soft-smart materials, particular areas of
expertise of the Bristol Soft Robotics Research Group.

You will hold (or will be expected to obtain soon) a strong PhD in a
discipline relevant to the project. In addition to a strong research track
record you will also have excellent communication and presentation skills,
and the enthusiasm to develop new and imaginative wearable soft robotics.

This post is offered on a full time fixed term contract for 3 years.

Vacancy Number: ACAD101414
To apply online:
Application deadline: 7th June 2015

Informal enquiries can be made to: Jonathan Rossiter
