A postdoctoral research position is available at Carnegie Mellon 
University in the area of dexterous robotic manipulation.   Research may 
focus on learning from demonstration and practice, optimization, and/or 
tight integration between perception and action.   Desired outcomes are 
robust demonstrations of grasping and manipulation of everyday objects.  
A Motoman SDA10 torso and two-arm robot is available with Shadow robot 
right hand and custom built left hand, along with an existing software 
base, extensive sensing technology, technical support, and collaborators 
in the areas of perception and machine learning.

The position is available immediately and will be filled ASAP.  Please 
send CV, statement of research goals, availability, and a list of 
references to Nancy Pollard nsp at cs.cmu.edu <mailto:nsp at cs.cmu.edu> and 
Drew Bagnell dbagnell at ri.cmu.edu <mailto:dbagnell at ri.cmu.edu>.

Applications from research programmers are also welcome for research 
related to this project.
