[Two Postdoctoral Positions in Robotic Sensors and Robotic System
Integration]



Soft Robotics Lab. and Motion Intelligence Lab., Department of Robotics,
Ritsumeikan University, are studying soft robotic hands with force sensing
capability and their applications to mechanical parts assembly. In this
collaborative research, we will conduct research on:

-       Mechanical parts assembly performed by a soft robotic hand with
force sensing,

-       ROS-based system integration of vision / force sensors,
manipulators, and hands,

We will employ two postdoctoral fellows for the above issues.



1. Job Title: Two postdoctoral fellows (one for the each topic below)

A. Soft robotic hands with force sensing capability
