We are seeking a highly motivated researcher for the following project:

Robotic Implants - This project involves creating robots that reside inside the body to modulate physiological functions, e.g., through application of forces or control of flow rates. Strong prototyping and system integration skills are needed. Experience in medical robotics and animal studies is a plus. The ability to work collaboratively with clinicians is also important. It is expected that the successful candidates will hold a PhD in engineering, physics or computer science.

Our Lab's mission is to embed creative young engineers and scientists in the #1 US pediatric hospital. This ensures that we work on clinically important problems and enables us to rapidly transition engineering prototypes to a clinical setting for testing.
