The Dynamic Robotics Laboratory seeks a postdoctoral researcher to
work with the ATRIAS class of Spring-Mass bipedal robots currently
under development:

The successful candidate will be able to work in a team environment,
with the aim of implementing real-time controllers for running and
walking gaits on the monopedal and bipedal ATRIAS robots. The
candidate will also work with students to perform experiments with the
robots, co-author publications, and manage and contribute to software
for the robots.

Research interests are flexible, the only hard requirement is interest
and experience in robot control and software development.  The ideal
candidate would have experience in several of the following areas:

- Project management (general)
- Software engineering project management
- Robot Operating System (ROS)
- Real-Time systems (we use RTAI)
- Embedded software (XMega chips)
