[robotics-worldwide] Postdoc Position Openings in the Biorobotics Lab in the Robotics Institute
choset at cs.cmu.edu
Sat Mar 24 10:17:04 PDT 2012
We are seeking a motivated postdoc researcher to conduct and lead
research in motion planning, control, and their
implementation on real systems. The specific projects include:
1. Rapid online combining path planning and control theory using
equivalence classes (such as homotopy classes) for aggressive
maneuvering with mobile robots
2. Geometric mechanics to derive cyclic controllers (gaits) to prescribe
motion for snake-like robots
3. Multi-agent planning for manufacturing in confined spaces.
Our research group is an enthusiastic, collaborative and hard working
one, with an emphasis on strong fundamentals and implementing new
concepts on robots. Strong analytic, communication and English writing
skills are necessary.
If you feel that you can learn from, contribute toward, and have a good
time in such an environment, then please send a 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
