Dual degree PhD Positions on Soft Electronics -Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program
Deadline December. 15. 2015

Soft Machines Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and The Institute of Systems and Robotics at University of Coimbra (UC) have joint PhD openings in the area of soft robotics. Students will receive a dual degree through the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program (http://www.cmuportugal.org/) and spend two years each at UC and CMU.  Their dissertational research will focus on the development of soft multifunctional materials, electronics, and mechatronic systems for safe physical interactions between humans and machines.  This includes 3D printed soft robotics, wearable electronics for human motion tracking, and artificial skin for humanoids and prosthetics.
We are particularly looking for candidates with hands-on experience in microfabrication, additive manufacturing, and/or mechatronics.  Interested PhD applicants should apply online to the Doctoral Program in Computer Science-Robotics:  http://www.cmuportugal.org/tiercontent.aspx?id=3936.  In your application, please refer to the following ERI project: CMUP-ERI/TIC/0021/2014 on Soft robotics and Wearable Technology.  When sending your application, please also send a notification with your CV to Mahmoud Tavakoli (mahmoud at isr.uc.pt) and Carmel Majidi (cmajidi at andrew.cmu.edu).
