Team e-Motion at INRIA Rhône-Alpes, Grenoble, France and Toyota Europe
are looking for a highly motivated PhD student to continue our ongoing
collaboration on Advanced Driving Assistance Systems and Autonomous
Navigation. The proposed work shall focus on the development of models
and methods for autonomous driving in realistic environments. The
proposed approach is to improve and extend upon our existing methods for
collision risk assessment, risk-based planning/navigation and
probabilistic safety evaluation. More information is available at:


The intended position start is in July 2013, but there is flexibility
to start it later. Applications can be sent immediately and will
continue to be evaluated until the position is taken.

The ideal candidate should possess strong analytical skills and
creativity, as well as knowledge in stochastic processes, decision
making, perception and robotics. She or he must have experience in
software development in C++ and Linux. The PhD candidate
shall be capable of working autonomously on assigned tasks. Team work
is crucial as it is the capability to perform experiments
with an equipped experimental car. Familiarity with CUDA and Boost
libraries will be appreciated. Experience using the Robotics library ROS
and fluency in English will be an advantage.

Applicants should submit:

  - A one page cover letter describing their background and motivations.
  - Curriculum Vitae.
  - Publication list.
  - Contact information of at least one referee.

Applications should be sent in a single PDF document to:
