The Arizona State University (ASU) and the Bio-Inspired Mechatronics Lab at The Polytechnic School of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering invites applications for one fully-funded PhD position (starting Fall 2016) in the areas of wearable assistive devices, and soft robotics. The position is open for motivated candidates with a background (BSE/MSE) in Mechanical Engineering, Robotics, or Mechatronics. It is expected that mechanical design, soft robotics, human interface design, biomechanics, device characterization and optimization as well as analytical/experimental mechanics will be key features of the research. Candidates with a broad range of technical skills and a track record in translating conceptual ideas into working prototypes will be strongly considered. Evidence of an ability to work in collaborative teams and good communication skills (oral and written) is essential. In addition, the successful candidates will be expected to publish scholarly papers and attend international conferences, as well as take on a mentorship role for undergraduate students, and act as a teaching assistant in related courses.
