The Biorobotics Lab is a part of Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Institute that specializes in research and development of biological inspired robotic systems to address real world problems such as manufacturing, minimal invasive surgery, and disaster response. We recently began investigating food, recycling, and archeology.
We have multiple openings for hard-working, creative and collaborative people who will be joining our team of professors, scientists, staff and students to work on exciting and challenging research projects. Our dream is to design and build novel robotic systems that will fundamentally change the way bio-inspired and modular robots solve problems of national importance and expand our core understanding of fundamental science.
Your core responsibilities will include:
Work on next-generation robot concepts, designs, and prototypes.
Design, prototype, and test mechanical components and mechatronic systems.
Write software to control or test robots or mechatronic systems.
Perform other related technical support for the research and engineering team.
Master's degree in engineering or other closely related field.
3+ years of relevant work experience.
Strong understanding of common mechanical engineering practices and standards.
Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
Hand-on experience on mechatronic system design and development.
Strong understanding of sensor, actuator, and control system.
Experience with design for manufacturability.
Proficient in mechanical and/or electrical CAD.
Strong complex robotic system design, prototyping, and testing skills.
Preferred Qualifications: (not all need apply)
PhD in STEM or equivalent experience.
Experience with FEA and design optimization workflow.
Experience with exotic material design and manufacturing. (Titanium and/or Composites)
Experience with embedded system and/or motor control.
Experience with high power density actuator custom design. (DD Motors, Hydraulics)
Strong programming skills.
