This project aims at creating a miniaturised soft, stiffness controllable robotic manipulator based on an antagonistic actuation principle ? combining tendon-driven and pneumatic air actuation. The field of clinical application will be minimally invasive surgery. In particular, procedures such as colo-rectal surgery create demand for the development of new inherently safe, surgical tools to aid surgeons in their work by offering higher manoeuvrability and on-demand stiffness. The Department of Mechanical Engineering at UCL has an outstanding international reputation in research on energy and the environment, marine engineering and naval architecture and engineering for medical applications, with strong research collaborations with industry and universities in the UK, North America, Asia and the Far East and has excellent research and teaching facilities. The position is available for twelve months in the first instance. Key Requirements The successful candidate must have a good first degree (2:1 UK equivalent or above), a PhD in electrical/mechanical engineering, computer science or robotics and have demonstrable skills in nonlinear/multibody dynamics with the focus on robotics healthcare.
