Dear colleagues,

HRL has an opening for a paid internship in robotics. The project's objective is dexterous manipulation of wires for manufacturing applications.
I need an intern who is enthusiastic about robotics, has expertise in controlling robot arms, and can develop software code efficiently without supervision. This project requires development of software, not hardware. We will work with state of the art robot arms. Experience in computer vision and/or tactile perception is a plus. The position is available immediately.

HRL Laboratories, LLC in sunny Malibu, California, is one of the world’s leading research institutes and is owned by both the Boeing Company and General Motors. HRL is an officially recognized IEEE Milestone and APS Physics Historic Site for being the place to invent the first working Laser. Apart from this historic moment, HRL held many world records - e.g., most powerful solid state Laser in 2005 and lightest material in 2011 - and we are looking forward to add more.

B.A./B.S./M.S. in engineering, computer science, or related
Excellent programming skills
Commitment to deliver an outstanding work performance
Demonstrated experience in robotics
