*PhD position in Bio-inspired Robotics and Sensing Applied to Remotely
Operated Robotics*

The French Agency for Nuclear Energy (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et
aux Energies Alternatives, CEA) has an open Ph.D. position in robotics, to
be hosted by the Bio-robotics group at Ecole des Mines de Nantes (EMN,
France). The project concerns the development of novel bio-inspired sensing
technologies for applications related to remote robotics, haptics,
underwater robotics and ocean engineering. The technology developed will
equip a new generation of remotely operated underwater robotic equipment,
providing the user with an unprecedented richness of information regarding
the environment the remote equipment is operating in.

This Ph.D. position provides an excellent opportunity for an outstanding,
motivated student, with a strong background in robotics and sensing, to
work, learn and develop in direct contact with research groups
internationally recognized in the field of bio-inspired robotics and
remotely operated robotics. Candidates with background in automatic control
theory, dynamical system theory, and/or applied mechatronics will receive
special consideration. Note that, due to the nature of the work involved, a
background security check will be performed, which may take up to three
months. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible,
by sending to the contact person listed below a resume, a letter of
motivation, and the contact information of no less than two references.

The position is open now.
