The Swiss EPFL Reconfigurable Robotics Lab https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__RRL.epfl.ch&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=yFGwF6FyVV9uX4gFC9qleY_ysVYiLxb-g_H7Z_lXkNk&s=WDNUl38M28BhRFQyp3GN1-TEKmgFZkTCosT2Z2GYuPA&e= is accepting applications for multiple post-doc positions in the following topics (1-2 open positions / topic) available immediately. If you are interested in any of these positions, please send your CV and references to [hidden email]<mailto:[hidden email]>. In the RRL website, you will find more opportunities at different levels (PhD, Masters, Engineer/Technician).
RRL supports an inclusive and diverse research environment.

Modelling: Foldable Robots
The postdoctoral researcher will lead efforts in analysing folding structures for origami robotic platforms.
S/he will examine kinematics, dynamics of unique folding mechanisms made of multilayers of functional materials.  We are particularly interested in candidates with structural mechanics background. Knowledge in geometrical algorithms/methods in robotics (e.g. projective geometry, screw theory) or computational geometry is a plus.

Novel Design & Fabrication Methods: Actuated Foldable Robots
The postdoctoral researcher will lead efforts to design and prototype origami platforms for robotic applications.
We are particularly interested in candidates with mechanism design / mechanical engineering background and experiences in prototyping unique machines, and robots.
Novel Design & Fabrication Methods: Soft Pneumatic Actuators (SPA)
The postdoctoral researcher will lead efforts to design and prototype novel soft robots.
This project combines emerging methods and technologies in actuator and multi-materials fabrications. S/he will validate the design and mechanical performance using the SPA Design Tool as seen in

We are particularly interested in candidates with finite element modelling (theories, numeric models) background and possibly experiences in robotics.
Space Robots: Modular Reconfigurable Robots
The postdoctoral researcher(s) will lead efforts to design / control / analyse modular robots for space applications based on MORI platform https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__rrl.epfl.ch_page-2D145950.html&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=yFGwF6FyVV9uX4gFC9qleY_ysVYiLxb-g_H7Z_lXkNk&s=jfokfMHTaR6ZvKf7GWHzL2KM1CaltIPVxMzXA0cH0-U&e=
We are particularly interested in candidates with mechanical design / distributed control / modular robotics background.
Medical Robots: Minimally-Invasive Surgical Tool
The postdoctoral researcher will lead efforts in designing and prototyping novel surgical tools for minimally invasive surgery.
We are particularly interested in candidates with mechanism design / mechanical engineering background and experiences in prototyping unique machines, and robots. Tendon-driven robotic experience is a great plus.
S/he will lead this research effort closely interacting with surgeons and industrial partners for iterating the tool design and validating its efficacy.
