Applications are invited for two fully funded position at the PostDoc level and two fully funded positions at the Research Engineer level within the Aerial Robotics Laboratory at Imperial College London. The project will investigate novel methods in Aerial Robotics for infrastructure maintenance and multi-terrain mobility. Main research thrusts will include smart mechanism design, morphing body structures, adaptive autonomous control as well as system integration, optimisation and testing.

The project will directly benefit from outstanding facilities in Aerial Robotics manufacturing and testing, including a new Vicon equipped flight arena, 13 wind/water tunnels and the rapid prototyping and composite fabrication centre at the Aeronautics Department. The work location will be the central London South Kensington campus next to Hyde Park offering an excellent ecosystem for furtherance of the project and for personal development in a variety of areas.

The post will also benefit from a strong established partnership with the Swiss Material Science Institute Empa next to Zurich which will allow for development of new aerial robots employing soft robotics and material science based approaches.
