PhD position Biomimetics: Bird-inspired aerial robotics

Are you passionate about aerial robot design and biomechanics of flight? Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD position with David Lentink in the Biomimetics Group at Groningen. You will become part of a project in which our team studies how birds fly in turbulence by dynamically shape-shifting their body. In the project you will be responsible for translating bird biomechanical insights into your advanced biomimetic aerial robot that can fly like a bird. We seek a PhD candidate who is passionate about curiosity-driven research, designing and flying bioinspired robots, and reading and writing broadly accessible multidisciplinary research papers about it.
