Higher Education Institution
The Designing Emergence Laboratory at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow position in the Bioinspired Robotics platform. 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. We seek outstanding applicants for an interdisciplinary postdoctoral position in bioinspired robotics and collective intelligence.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject line “POSTDOC APPLICATION.” The position is open until filled.
