We are seeking a passionate PhD candidate with a background in biology to explore bio-inspired research, focusing on seahorse tails and its application potentials in robotics. Dive into the secrets of these remarkable marine creatures, equipped with a grasping tail that combines strength and flexibility. Study their biomechanics and anatomical structure to uncover nature’s engineering solutions. Your work will advance our understanding in evolutionary morphology, but will also inspire innovations in robotics and materials science. Join our dynamic research group, access cutting-edge facilities, and collaborate with top experts (in evolutionary morphology, robotics and AI). With a background in biology, you can embark on this challenging journey. Unravel seahorse tail form, function and evolution, and shape the future of bio-inspired technology.
This position is open and immediately available. Submission deadline: 31/10/2023
