Interactive Robotics Unit of French Atmoic Energy Commission (CEA-LIST - http://www-list.cea.fr) is offering 2 positions within the framework of European
project FreeSubNet: one post-graduate, and one PhD position.
The aim is to develop assistances for deep sea underwater interventions such as operations on Prestige type wrecks, or on sub sea infrastructures, for
example during  docking and underwater manipulation with a robot arm. The arm is mounted on an Autonomous Undersea Vehicle dedicated to intervention tasks
in submarine applications. Assistance will rely mainly on using vision and force control. Force control might be used when in contact. The operator being
situated in a remote place (in a surface boat or  in another submarine), manipulation tasks will have to be autonomous and not too demanding  for him. Robustness and accuracy will therefore be key elements for the function.

Control issues are related to robust control, delay systems, ...

We seek highly motivated applicants with a strong background in control and or robots engineering. Interested candidates should contact Frédéric Colledani (frederic(dot)colledani at cea(dot)fr) or Franck Geffard (franck(dot)geffard at cea(dot)fr).

Applicants must have spent less than 12 months in France. Women applications are particularly sollicited.
