The Robotics group at the University of Groningen has two vacancies for doctoral students on soft robotics. The two PhD positions will be part of the European Horizon2020 project MAGNIFY. The goal of MAGNIFY is to design and realize a new generation of artificial muscles for robotic systems, characterized by high force-to-weight ratio, high flexibility, fast reacting properties, and intrinsic rigidity tuning. The project will use artificial molecular machines, organized in polymer electrospun nanofibers and controlled by electrical stimuli, to realize an artificial macroscopic muscle.
The two PhD positions focus on: (i) the design and fabrication of the different stages of the artificial muscle; (ii) electromechanical characterization of the artificial muscle; iii) development of (analytical, numerical, predictive) models; (iv) development of (non-linear) control techniques; (v) experimental validation.
The successful candidates should have:
• a Master’s degree in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, applied physics, or in closely related disciplines
• excellent skills and practical experience in one or more of the following research areas: (soft) robotics, systems and control, MEMs, material science, nanofabrication and electrospinning
• strong academic credentials
• written and spoken English proficiency.
