A new position is now available at the Spanish National Research Council
(CSIC) for a highly motivated engineer to perform research and development
within the three-year EU project H2R “Integrative approach for the emergence
of human-like robotic locomotion” (www.h2rproject.eu). 

The H2R project aims to build a compliant human-like bipedal robot that
includes the main relevant biomechanical, neural and cognitive mechanisms
found in humans. This process will result in enhanced robotic posture and
locomotion in unstructured environment.

The successful candidate will:
- Participate in the design and development of a human-like compliant
walking biped.
- Integrate innovative control and actuating systems for the generation of
new postural and locomotion skills.
- Validate the human-like behavior of the biped in different scenarios, by
means real-life and simulated experiments.

The candidate will perform most of his/her research activity at the
Bioengineering Group of CSIC, located in Madrid, Spain. The candidate will
also be involved in dynamic and frequent collaborations with other European
partners located in Germany and Belgium. Working towards a PhD is encouraged
and supported.

The ideal candidate will have an engineering degree in Electronics,
Mechatronic, Automation or related field, and demonstrate experience in one
or more of the following areas:
- Real-time control of robots	
- Integration of embedded systems
- Circuit-board manufacturing and debugging
- Programming in Linux, C++, Matlab and Simulink

Fluency in spoken and written English, excellent communication and
interpersonal skills are also required.

The successful candidate will be offered a one-year contract, renewable
until the end of the Project (January 2016). The expected starting date is
October 1, 2013.

If you are interested in applying, please contact Dr Diego Torricelli
(diego.torricelli at csic.es) and Prof. Jose Luis Pons (jose.pons at csic.es)
sending your CV, graduate transcripts, letters of reference (or references
contact), and a cover letter with a brief description of your motivation and

The application process will end on August 31.

We look forward to receiving your application!
