Position in Robotic Mobility and Manipulation at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory:

REQUIRES: MA/MS/Ph.D. degree in Engineering or related discipline. Strong R&D background in robotic kinematics, dynamics and control.  Published results of robotics research.  Experience in software implementation for robotic systems. Good communication skills, both verbal and written.

DESIRED:  Expertise in sensing and run-time sequence planning and control for dynamic single and multi-limbed robotic systems. Demonstrated innovation ability. Leadership experience and growth potential. Experience with NASA/military/DARPA projects and concept/proposal development is a plus.

WILL: Be a Staff Engineer in the Mobility and Manipulation Group in the Mobility and Robotic Systems Section. Develop novel kinematics, sensing, planning, and control for robotic systems.  Applications include single and multi-limbed control for planetary and terrestrial robotic systems interacting with unmodeled and partially modeled environments.  Work independently and under the direction of the group supervisor, project management, technical leads, and proposal managers as required. Will collaborate in development of new robotics system concepts and proposal development.  Will report to the Group Supervisor, Mobility and Manipulation Group.

To apply, respond with cover letter, citizenship, and C.V. to: mm-jobs at jpl.nasa.gov<mailto:mm-jobs at jpl.nasa.gov>.
