The Robotic Embedded Systems Laboratory at the University of Southern
Califoria (robotics.usc.edu/resl) has multiple postoc openings.

We seek candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas:

    planning under uncertainty,
    interactive perception,
    probabilistic state estimation,
    sensor fusion,
    object recognition,
    grasping and manipulation planning,
    multi-robot systems/control.

A demonstrated ability to implement and test systems on real robots is
required. A background in active sensing and machine learning is
highly desirable. The successful candidates will work as part of a team
of faculty, postdocs and PhD students and must have the ability to
work to deadlines. Candidates must be excellent programmers and
must have (or shortly) complete a PhD degree in Robotics, Computer
Science or related discipline.

The robotics laboratories at USC have a variety of cutting edge
experimental research testbeds. These include a Willow Garage PR2, an
experimental humanoid composed of a high-performance Barett arm and
hand combined with a stereo head and time-of-flight range camera. A
purpose-built SARCOS full body humanoid is also available for
experimental work. Also available are: Parrot ARdrones, Willow Garage
Turtlebots, and two custom-built quadrotors. For our aquatic robotics
research there are two robotic boats, two Slocum underwater gliders
and EcoMapper autonomous underwater vehicle. The successful candidates
will have shared access to all of these platforms.

The positions are open with immediate effect, and will remain open
until filled. Applicants are requested to send a single PDF file
containing a recent CV, list of papers, and the names of two referees
to Prof. Gaurav Sukhatme (gaurav at usc.edu).  Applications will be
reviewed on an ongoing basis as they are received.
