Dr. Panagiotis (Panos) Polygerinos, Assistant Professor of Engineering in The Polytechnic School of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, and director of the ASU Bio-Inspired Mechatronics Lab, seeks to find senior BS and MS students to work on their thesis project in the areas of wearable assistive devices, and soft robotics. These positions are at the Polytechnic campus.
The positions are open for motivated candidates with a background in Mechanical Engineering, Robotics, Mechatronics, or related field. It is expected that mechanical design, soft robotics, human interface design, biomechanics, material science, device characterization and optimization as well as analytical/experimental mechanics will be key features of the research projects. Candidates with a broad range of technical skills and a track record in translating conceptual ideas into working prototypes will be strongly considered. Evidence of an ability to work in collaborative teams and good communication skills (oral and written) is essential.
Prospective candidates should send an email to Dr. Panagiotis (Panos) Polygerinos at email@example.com, with their contact information, an updated resume, and unofficial transcripts to demonstrate their competences.
