You will contribute to a project (Predictive Haptic Coding Devices In Next Generation interfaces (PH-CODING)) working with (Professor Ravinder Dahiya, (Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST) Group)). The PH-CODING project will develop the next generation ultra-intuitive user interfaces based on the main scientific hypothesis that any haptic interaction involves a very large number of widespread skin sensors whose signals have a relationship that is intrinsically modulated by the contact with the environment and the skin mechanics. In this regard, the project will design and fabricate a soft artificial eSKIN based on bendable electronics integrating a variety of micro-/nano-sensors, with the capacity to ‘perceive’ multi-dimensional user input. Specifically, the job requires expert knowledge in materials for sensors, tactile sensing, electronic skin, and micro/nanofabrication. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project as opportunities allow.

The position is full time with funding up to 11 months in the first instance.
