*EXCITING OPPORTUNITIES in the field of SOFT ROBOTICS and HAPTICS with applications in surgical interventions.*

Dear All,

We are seeking to employ *1 Research Fellow* and *2 PhD students*. The successful applicants will be joining the growing Soft Haptics and Robotics Lab at University College London - a world-leading university with strong interdisciplinary research.  

1 Research Fellow (Deadline: 15 Feb 2019):
The Department of Mechanical Engineering is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow in Soft Robotics and Haptics in the area of surgical robotics. The position is available from 1 March 2019 and funded for two years in the first instance. The Research Fellow will design, model, fabricate and validate a soft, stiffness-controllable haptic feedback actuator which will be integrated into the da Vinci Research Kit.

Key Requirements:
The successful candidate must have a good first degree (2:1 UK equivalent or above), a PhD in electrical/mechanical engineering, computer science or robotics and have sufficient experience in soft robotics and/or haptics to demonstrate that they have generated and executed independent and collaborative research at an internationally-leading level. Candidates must have a good track record of recently and continuously publishing their work in research journals and undertaken some supervisory roles in a research laboratory.

2 PhD students (Deadline: open until filled):
There are 2 full studentships (tuition fees + maintenance) available within the Soft Robotics and Haptics Lab at UCL Mechanical Engineering/UCL Robotics. The position is available from 1 March 2019 and funded for three years. The projects will focus on modelling soft robotic structures and developing stiffness sensors.

Key Requirements:
The applicants must have a good (2:1 UK equivalent or above) Masters degree and demonstrate experience in modelling, soft robotics, or sensor development. 

Apply now and send your application to Dr Helge Wurdemann (h.wurdemann at ucl.ac.uk).
