Research Programmer/Analyist and/or Postdoc
Carnegie Mellon University, Robotics Institute

I am looking for highly motivated candidates in the areas of field
robotics, state estimation, and sensor fusion to work on an effort
involving real-time state estimation and LIDAR-based path
tracking/following for outdoor automated vehicles.  This is a multi-year
effort working with a Pittsburgh company interested in licensing
autonomous vehicle technologies developed at Carnegie Mellon.

Candidates should have knowledge and practical experience with state
estimation theory including error modeling, derivation of filters, and
analysis/tuning of those filters.  For example, since we're using a
combination of GPS, IMU, and LIDAR-based sensors and are fusing the data
from all of those, candidates will be expected to have knowledge of most
of these sorts of sensors and how to process the data from them.  We
develop primarily in C++ on Ubuntu Linux and make heavy use of the ROS
framework from Willow Garage.  Experiences with these languages and
systems is required.

Candidates must have an appropriate visa to allow working in the United
States during the period specified.

Duration: 12 months (with extensions to additional phases afterwards)
Availability: Immediate
Location: Pittsburgh, PA, USA

(If interested in a postdoc rather than full-time staffposition, please
email your CV and list of references directly to Paul E. Rybski
