The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Institute, Faculty of Engineering in Odense, 
University of Southern Denmark
has a postdoc position open in the area of modular robotics. The 
position is open from the 1st of October 2007
to the 30th of September 2008 with a possibility of extension for 
another year.

The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Institute performs research in modular 
robotics at a high international level.
The successful applicant will contribute to this research in 
collaboration with an interdisciplinary team of
researchers to develop electronics for the next generation of modular 
robots. The Danish Council for
Technology and Innovation finances the position through the project 
Morphing Production Lines
(see http://ecosoc.sdu.dk/coe/Morphing_production_lines). The overall 
goal of this project is to mature
modular robotics for application.

In the assessment of an application, attention will be paid to 
experience in developing electronics.
Furthermore, it is considered an advantage for the applicant to have a 
background in robot technology
or modular systems. The applicant will contribute to innovative 
technical solutions and therefore has
to be a team player while also being independent and creative. The 
application will also be required to
publish results and is expected to have a Ph.D. degree in computer 
systems engineering, electrical
engineering, mechatronics or similar.

In general, The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Institute performs research at a 
high international level in
artificial intelligence, software engineering, and robot technology. The 
institute plays a central role in
robotics research in Denmark in cooperation with the RoboCluster network.
