The successful candidate will undertake research on the theory, applications, and control of soft or wearable robotic systems.  

The postdoctoral researcher will play a key role in one of the following areas:

- Soft actuator and robotic systems design, modeling, and control
- Wearable robotic systems for augmenting human sensorimotor capabilities

Candidates should have outstanding engineering skills, dedication, and a record of scientific activity, including publication.  We are interested in applicants with possible expertise in areas including control, continuum systems, design, multiphysics simulation, or real-time software.  Consideration will be given to candidates with strong analytical skills and a recent (< 3 years) PhD in a relevant field (engineering, computer science, or similar). A PhD is required. Salary will be competitive.
