The Laboratory for Intelligent Mechanical Systems (LIMS) at Northwestern
University is looking for an accomplished robotics software and controls
engineer to play a key role in the lab's research program.

Candidates must have strong programming and software engineering skills (C,
C++, Matlab, Java, Python) and the equivalent of two or more years
programming real robots.  The ideal candidate has experience with robot
manipulators, real-time control systems, computer vision, ROS, and their
integration.  The ideal candidate thrives in an open, collaborative, and
stimulating research environment.

Job responsibilities include working alongside LIMS faculty and students to
specify, design, integrate, implement, and document novel experimental
robotic systems supporting sponsored research projects in robot
manipulation, haptics, physical human-robot interaction, and other topics
in robot design and control.

To apply, send a single pdf file containing a cover letter, a resume
including the contact information of two or more references, and any other
information that may be useful, such as papers or other descriptions of
past projects, to Prof. Kevin Lynch, kmlynch at northwestern.edu.  The cover
letter may include links to websites with more information.

Northwestern University is located in Evanston, Illinois, just north of
Chicago.  Northwestern is an equal opportunity employer.
