The fanciest aspect of science is its outcomes will contribute to our daily life, but how does a paper become a product? Led by Dr. Christoph Keplinger, the MPI-IS Robotic Materials Department is working on robotic prototypes showing the public the advantages and potentials of our artificial muscle. To free human hands and achieve more efficiency in artificial muscle fabrication, we focus on building a direct ink writing platform for automatic writing electrodes and desired functional elements in plastic films.
The student assistant position will allow to gain hands-on experience with hardware systems, as well as to be exposed to ongoing robotics research. The position and tasks are subject to discussion with the interested candidates.
Possible tasks include:
We are looking for talented students who are pursuing a Master of Science in physics (Physik), mechanical engineering (Maschinenbau), mechatronics (Mechatronik), material science (Materialwissenschaft), or related fields to support our research as student assistants (HiWis).
We are especially interested in applicants who have
