Short description: The postdoc will fabricate, optimise, and characterise soft artificial muscles based on electroactive polymers and textiles. The textile actuators may be based on single yarns or fabrics. He/She will also integrate the textile actuators in various textile constructions and electro-mechanically active wearables. The post-doc will learn to synthesize and characterize soft artificial muscles based on electroactive yarns and textiles. He/She will perform electrochemical synthesis, coating of yarns and fabrics, electro-mechanical characterization, mechanical characterization, textile fabrication and various textile constructions.
