A postdoc position is available at the Institut des Systemes 
Intelligents et de Robotique (http://www.isir.upmc.fr), Universite 
Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France.

The successful candidate will work on developing autonomous locomotion 
capabilities for a tracked mobile robot equipped with a 5-dof arm when 
crossing uneven ground surfaces (stairs, rocks, ...). This includes 
on-line optimization of the robot traction and stability and collision 
avoidance (mainly between arm and the environment). In the beginning, 
the path will be assumed given by the operator and the control has to 
adjust the forward velocity, the arm configuration and the flipper 
angle. The successful candidate has to work closely with other project 
partners who will provide 3D surface mapping and 6D pose estimation.

Interested candidates should have a strong background in control and 
robotics and proven skills in working with embedded systems using Linux. 
Strong C/C++ programming skills are required for this position.

To apply, please send an email to Faiz Ben-Amar (amar at isir.upmc.fr) with 
your cv including references, a brief introduction of your research 
background and plans.
The position is available for 1 - 2 years and is expected to start in 
the first quarter of 2012.
