The LAAS, Gepetto Team is looking for two engineers in the field of 
humanoid robotics and/or avatar animation.

1/  Inverse Dynamics Engineer

The Laboratory for Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS) at CNRS, 
Toulouse France, is currently looking for a humanoid robot engineer. 
This is a two-year, full-time employment position in the frame of the 
French national research project ANR /Entracte/.

The engineer will be involved in implementing inverse dynamics 
algorithms for humanoid robots and virtual avatar. Specifically the 
engineer will be involved in the implementation, maintenance and 
development of the software /Stack of Tasks/to general 
dynamically-consistent movements. The dynamic movements will then be 
used to control humanoid robots such as HRP-2 and Romeo, to perform 
realistic animation of virtual avatar and to predict the movement of 
human in virtual ergonomics studies.

The successful candidate is expected to have a strong background in the 
field, experience in control or numerical mathematics, good programming 
skills in C++ and a good mathematical background. Experience dynamic 
simulator (Gazebo, Bullet, etc) will be a plus. Candidates should have a 
proven experience track record witnessed by relevant master thesis, or 
publications.

To apply for this position, please send a CV to Nicolas Mansard 
(nmansard [at] laas.fr).
The expected starting date is 2014-10-01. Your application should reach 
LAAS no later than 2014-07-15.

2/ Romeo Engineer

The Laboratory for Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS) at CNRS, 
Toulouse France, is currently looking for a humanoid robot engineer. 
This is a two-year, full-time employment position in the frame of the 
ROMEO 2 a French national research project.

Romeo 2 is building upon the result of the Romeo project aiming at 
providing a mechatronic platform for human-humanoid robot interaction. 
The engineer will be involved in developing and evaluating low-level 
control loop on the ROMEO humanoid robot. This robot is the first to use 
screw cable driven joints at the legs. The focus of this work will be 
related to support the researchers in identifying and controlling these 
new actuators. Specifically the engineer will be involved in the 
implementation, maintenance and development of the Stack of Tasks on 
Romeo to perform torque control.


The successful candidate is expected to have a strong background in the 
field, experience in motor control, or mechatronics, good programming 
skills in C++ and a good mathematical knowledge. Experience on Naoqi 
will be a plus. Candidates should have a proven experience track record 
witnessed by relevant master thesis, or publications.

To apply for this position, please send a CV to Olivier Stasse (ostasse 
[at] laas.fr).
The expected starting date is 2014-10-01. Your application should reach 
LAAS no later than 2014-07-15.

*/ Environment:

Gepetto team provides an international research environment and the 
working language is English. Located in the University town of Toulouse 
(south-west of France) the LAAS-CNRS laboratory is a 640 man strong 
research center with about 100 people working in robotics. It benefits 
from strong connections to the adjoining universities (among the best 
department in France in aerospace and computer science) and the space 
and aeronautics industry.

Salary and health insurance are regulated by French Law and depends upon 
the successful candidate experience.
