Opening for a postdoctoral fellow at Carnegie Mellon's National Robotics
Engineering Center (NREC). NREC is a part of the Robotics Institute (RI) in
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. The position will start as soon as possible.

We are looking for a talented researcher to lead the research and development
of a high fidelity sensor modeling system for Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs).
The work will involve automatically building high quality 3D models from sensor
data collected by a robot and then using that model to generate synthetic views
for a novel robot operating in the same environment. This project is part of a
larger effort to build a high fidelity simulator for validating the performance
of UGVs in real world, off road environments. As such, the skills required will
be at the intersection of robot perception, computer vision, graphics and high
fidelity simulation.

We are looking for researchers primarily with experience in Computer Vision and
robot perception systems, although other relevant experience will be
