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
