We offer a 4-year PhD position in Bioinspired Variable-Stiffness Textiles for Soft Robots. This project aims to develop a variable-stiffness material that finds application in wearable textile-integrated solutions for healthcare and medicine. The Doctoral Candidate transfers the stiffness variation mechanisms found in natural cells and tissues to a textile platform. The electrochemically controlled variable-stiffness textile conforms to human bodies and demonstrates high level of safety, enabling devices in direct physical contact to humans.
