The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) anticipates growth in computer vision
groups that address application areas including autonomous navigation
(ground, air, maritime, and space), robot manipulation, and surveillance.
Inquiries at all levels will be considered, from full-time, PhD-level
research to post-doc to strong computer vision/embedded system
implementation. JPL conducts research sponsored by NASA, many DoD agencies,
and industry on 3-D perception with passive and active sensors, multi-sensor
terrain understanding, dynamic scene understanding,  and
classification/recognition for manipulation and surveillance. Robot
navigation applications range from hand-held unmanned air and ground
vehicles, to full-sized vehicles on-road, off-road, on and under water, to
planetary rovers, landers, and balloons. Robot manipulation applications
include a variety of tasks and domain areas on Earth and in-space assembly
and servicing. Surveillance applications primarily involve overhead imagery.
We are seeking self-motivated individuals with a balance of mathematical and
implementation skills and strong communication skills; calibre of the
applicant is more important than research specialization. More information
about robotics at JPL can be found at http://robotics.jpl.nasa.gov. Direct
inquiries with resume to:
