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 multiple immediate openings in the area soft wearable robots. We are developing a soft exosuits to augment the mobility of healthy individuals during load carriage and restore the mobility and grasp strength of patients with physical disabilities. We are seeking a) staff engineers with industry experience and b) postdoctoral researchers interested in developing prototype systems that can be tested in the field or clinic. 

Candidates should have expertise in various aspects of robotic projects with high dynamics, multiple DOF where significant system integration and testing is required: either Electrical Engineering (power electronics, high-frequency digital circuits, high-power motor systems, ARM architecture development, low-level programming, real-time communication, high frequency loop rates, sensor networks, high-quality PCB design, etc.), Mechanical Engineering (machine design, mechanism design, actuator/transmission design, design for manufacture, technical drawings, etc.), Control Algorithm Development (human/robot walking, dynamics, biomechanics, optimization, estimation, etc.), mechatronics or related field.

Strong organizational skills, creativity, motivation, and communication (oral and written) ability required. More details on the various projects can be found on our lab website (http://biodesign.seas.harvard.edu). 

Staff job applications [1) Electrical Engineer, 2) Staff Engineer - Wearable Robotics and 3) Electromechanical Engineer] are listed here http://wyss.harvard.edu/viewpage/91/positions-at-the-wyss and candidates should also send a CV and cover letter to Conor Walsh (walsh at seas.harvard.edu). Postdoctoral applications 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 also be sent to Conor Walsh, walsh at seas.harvard.edu.
