The Designing Emergence Laboratory at the Wyss Institute for Biologically
Inspired Engineering at Harvard University invites applications for a
postdoctoral fellow position in swarm robotics and collective behavior.
The mission of the Wyss Institute is to discover the engineering principles
that Nature uses to build living things; to pursue the high-risk research
that is fundamental to advance this effort; and to harness these insights
to create biologically inspired materials and devices to advance human
health and improve the environment, thereby revolutionizing clinical
medicine and creating a more sustainable world.

Our group is interested in understanding and designing complex systems of
many independent agents, from both scientific and engineering
perspectives.  Areas of interest include developing new algorithms and
hardware for swarm robotic systems, as well as studies of social insects
and other natural systems exhibiting notable collective behavior.
Applicants from theoretical as well as applied backgrounds are welcome.

Applications, assembled as single PDF files, should contain a cover letter
describing background and research interests, a full CV with list of
publications, and names and contact information for at least three writers
of letters of recommendation who might be contacted as references.
Applications should be emailed as a link or attachment to
justin.werfel at wyss.harvard.edu using the subject line "POSTDOC
APPLICATION".  The position is open until filled.

Harvard University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and
applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged.
