The National Robotics Engineering Center, (NREC), part of Carnegie Mellon
University's world-renowned Robotics Institute, is looking for a senior
robotics engineer for an immediate opportunity to fill a critical role in
our projects.

Other immediate needs also include Robotics Engineers, and Senior Robotics


Requirements include:


.             Significant computer vision experience to work on structure
from motion, stereo, and sensor fusion.

.             Identify technical direction which includes identifying and
prioritizing new work that addresses weaknesses of or adds substantial new
features to current systems

.             Decompose such work into smaller tasks for less senior

.             Build development plans for small teams to execute


Responsibilities are:


.             Assist project director in formalizing and tracking plans and
progress to the customer

.             Task small teams to execute such plans and monitor risks
during execution of plans

.             Supervision of one to seven engineers as well as support

.             Requires advanced formal engineering or computer science
education, superior problem solving skills, and independent decision-making

.             Systems being constructed typically require design and
development of: artificial intelligence, machine learning techniques,
computer vision, path planning, real-time control algorithms, sensor
interfaces, serial and Ethernet communication software, simulation and
graphical user interfaces


Additional desired qualities are:

.             Education: Masters degree in Robotics, Information Science,
Computer Science, Software Engineering or engineering (electrical, computer,
mechanical) or equivalent combination of training and experience

.             Licenses: May require licensing in a particular area

.             Experience: At least 4 or more years of related experience,
including in depth experience in robotics applications

.             Skills: Ability to apply mastery and broad understanding in a
specific field (i.e., computer science, chemistry, electrical engineering,
design, etc.) to practical scientific or technical projects; skill in using
C or C++ with modern software engineering processes; experience writing
software in a Linux or Unix environment; in depth, applied experience with
robotics and 3D computer vision and/or planning algorithms; excellent
analytical, technical, reasoning and innovative problem solving skills;
ability to function competently in a team environment; ability to interact
and communicate effectively and courteously with members of the campus
community and external customers; computer expertise; ability to maintain
accurate and detailed records; requires supervisory and leadership skills;
meet inflexible deadlines; deal with difficult individuals while maintaining

.             Physical Mobility: Normally sedentary with some mobility;
i.e., able to travel to other campus locations; may require some bending,
stretching, pushing as well as lifting of components or equipment

.             Environmental Conditions: Work is normally performed in an
academic or research lab. There is frequent close contact with CRT for long
periods of time

.             Mental: Ability to pay close attention to detail, meet
inflexible deadlines, remain calm during difficult situations, work under
pressure and work with frequent interruptions, supervise others
