Postdoctoral Position in Robotics - GW Robotics & Mechatronics Lab,
Washington, DC - Last Call

GW Robotics and Mechatronics Laboratory at the George Washington University,
Washington, DC - the flagship Robotics Research Center of the University -
is seeking a postdoctoral researcher with experience in robotic vision and
sensor-based navigation for mobile robot autonomy to help lead a
DARPA-funded project on autonomous symbiosis of robotic locomotion and
manipulation.

Required expertise: 
Applications are sought from candidates who have completed their Ph.D. in
Robotics or related fields. Interested candidates should have a strong
background in computer vision and robotics and proven skills in working with
embedded systems using Linux. Computer programming skills, such as C/C++,
are required. The successful candidate will work on developing autonomous
locomotion and manipulation capabilities for mobile robotic systems. This
includes image processing and LIDAR/Stereo Camera sensor fusion
applications.  

Position Availability and Application package:

The position is available immediately and is expected to be available for 1
- 3 years. Interested parties should email a CV, a statement of interest,
and the names of available references to Prof. Ben-Tzvi (bentzvi at gwu.edu,
subject line: "Postdoc Application") as soon as possible. We plan to start
our selection process on November 15th. The start date will be December 1st,
2011 or earlier, but no later than January 1st, 2012.

 

The successful applicant will join a vibrant team of students working in GW
Robotics & Mechatronics Lab to do research in Robotics. This is an exciting
time to join because GWU is going through a substantial growth.  The
University has recently invested over $350 million in a new Science and
Engineering building and hired over 30 new faculty members in the past 3
years.
