Post-doc in Motion Planning for DARPA Robotics Challenge at WPI

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA
is participating in the DARPA robotics challenge Track A as part of a
multi-university team. Please see this link for more information about
the challenge:

https://www.fbo.gov/utils/view?id=74d674ab011d5954c7a46b9c21597f30

We seek a post-doc to conduct research in motion planning for humanoid
robots. The post-doc will have the opportunity to design new planning
algorithms, integrate them with machine learning and user interfaces,
and apply them to real-world tasks for humanoid robots. The post-doc
will also participate in system infrastructure design and
implementation and work with physics simulation. Previous experience
with motion planning, machine learning for robotics, physics
simulation, and/or humanoid robots is an advantage.

We are looking for someone to start this fall. The duration of the
position is 15 months starting in October.

To apply, please send (1) your CV and (2) a 1-page statement of
interest describing relevant previous experience to
dberenson at cs.wpi.edu by October 1st.
