[robotics-worldwide] Postdoc Position in the Biorobotics Lab in the Robotics Institute
choset at cs.cmu.edu
Fri Nov 11 00:23:38 PST 2011
We are seeking a motivated postdoc researcher to conduct and lead
research in motion planning, control, and their
implementation on real systems. Strong analytic, communication and
writing skills are necessary, but experience in hardware construction is
not, although would be quite helpful. The Biorobotics group is a
multi-disciplinary and highly interactive group, so a candidate must
feel comfortable working in an exciting and dynamic environment. It is
also expected that the candidate will help advise graduate and
undergraduate students and steer the intellectual direction of the lab.
While the specific nature of the post-doctoral work will depend upon the
interests of applicants, areas of interest include
1. Educational Robotics - Develop and implement LEGO labs for high
school students that use multiple robots to teach issues in
communication and coordination, as well as science, technology,
engineering and math.
2. Distributed Manufacturing - Design and oversee the construction of
new hardware for decentralized manufacturing of large scale structures.
Also, prescribe and implement algorithms of decentralized manipulation
3. Motion Planning of Locomoting Robots - Build upon our group's
existing efforts in geometric mechanics to prescribe motion controllers
for locomoting systems operating in dirty/granular environments.
To apply, please send CV, three letters of recommendation, links to at
most three relevant publications, and a short
statement of interest to
Howie Choset, choset at cs.cmu.edu
Also, include in the email a time at which you will become available.
This position can open immediately.
Howie Choset, Robotics Institute
