The Robotics Research Center at Ritsumeikan University, Japan is accepting
application for senior researcher appointment in the project of “Robotics
Innovation Based on Advanced Materials”. The senior researcher will lead
efforts to discover and develop advanced materials available to robotics,
and to introduce advanced materials to convert the current “hard, heavy,
bulky” robots into “soft, light, compact” robots.

Soft Robotics Laboratory, one of the laboratories of the above program, is
investigating robots with novel functions brought by soft materials with
soft sensors and actuators. We will study in



Sensor and structural design for soft robotics

-       Design, fabrication, and control of robotic hands composed of soft
materials

-       Magnetic field based force sensor embedded with soft fingertips

-       Slip / proximity sensors using electro-conductive fabric/polymer



We will combine emerging methods and technologies in robotics and material
science. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in
conductive elastomers, robotic design, rapid prototype, system integration,
and functional materials.
