[robotics-worldwide] [Jobs] Postdoc in Soft Robotics at The University of Tulsa

Joshua Schultz-2
The Biological Robotics At Tulsa (BRAT) research group, in cooperation with
the Advanced Composite Materials Laboratory at The University of Tulsa is
seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to support activities of a recently awarded
US National Science Foundation Emerging Frontiers in Research and
Innovation grant. The overarching goal of the project is to make fabric
reinforced robots capable of completing tasks autonomously in complex
environments where the robot will make contact with features of the
environment that have not been modeled *a priori. *The postdoctoral fellow
will be jointly mentored by Joshua Schultz (dynamics, kinematics, control),
and Michael Keller (solid mechanics, active and self-healing materials),
providing interdisciplinary cross-training.

The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. (or about to be granted a Ph.D.)
in engineering or computer science with experience in robot kinematics,
dynamics, control, active materials, elastomers or machine learning.

Activities will depend on the needs of the grant, the postdoc's prior
experience and desires for growth into new research areas, but are expected
to include dynamic modeling of soft robots, sensor fusion, estimation,
development and integration of new soft sensors and actuators, and machine
learning for contact detection and exploitation.

The position will have a duration of two years with possibility of renewal.
Applicants should send
1. A current CV with at least 3 references
2. Cover letter
3. Dissertation title and defense date (or projected defense date), and
4. copies of 3 peer-reviewed papers (or papers under review or about to be

to [hidden email].

The University of Tulsa is located only 4 km from downtown Tulsa on
historic Route 66, a metro area with nearly 1 million inhabitants.

The University of Tulsa is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
