A postdoctoral position to be held at McGill University (Montreal) in  
collaboration with Université Pierre & Marie Curie (Paris) is  
available immediately in the area of nonlinear control systems. Novel  
approaches to the design of controllers for underactuated mechanical  
systems will be investigated. Specific applications include locomotion  
control of humanoid robots. We anticipate to explore approaches based  
on approximations of the controllability Lie algebras of such systems  
alongside with approximate energy shaping. Familiarity with geometric  
(Lie algebraic) nonlinear control, controlled Lagrangian, as well as  
passivity-based approaches will be helpful.

Please provide a CV, a brief statement of research interests, and two  
or three references to Hannah Michalska <hannah.michalska at mcgill.ca>  
and Vincent Hayward <vincent.hayward at isir.fr>
