[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Two PostDoc positions in Aerial Bio-Robotics at Imperial College London
Applications are invited for two fully funded PostDoc position at the Aerial Robotics Laboratory at Imperial College London. The project will investigate environmental sensing and interaction methods for extreme and hazardous environments using Aerial Bio-Robots. Main research thrusts will include smart mechanism design, bio-inspired control and navigation frameworks, morphing body structures as well as system integration, optimization and testing.
The project will directly benefit from outstanding facilities in Aerial Robotics manufacturing and testing, including a new Vicon equipped multi-terrain 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.
Applicants must have a strong publication record, preferably with relevant experience in Aerial Robot prototyping, control and testing. The successful candidate will also be part of the management team and work closely with PhD and MSc students as well as with other research groups.
For full consideration please send your CV, motivation statement and up to three publications as a single pdf file to [hidden email]<mailto:[hidden email]> with the subject line “Postdoc application Aerial Bio-Robotics”. Closing date for the applications is 19.10.2017. Interviews are planned for the 30.10.2017 with starting date asap afterwards.
