Post-doc openings at the University of Pennsylvania

Dear colleagues, I hope this note finds you well despite the significant challenges that 2020 has brought. I am seeking to hire two post-docs for a new multidisciplinary project in my group titled "Distributed intelligence in kirigami-inspired flexible architectures". In this project we aim to implement ideas such as logic, information processing, and autonomy in materials. This work will draw on a number of disciplines, including information theory, soft robotics, kirigami/origami and geometric design, 3D printing of stimuli-responsive materials, morphological computing, etc.
