The Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) in sunny Pensacola, Florida is looking to hire new team members for its DARPA Robotics Challenge and Robotic Exoskeleton teams.

Team IHMC was the second place finisher in the DARPA Robotics Challenge Trials, held in December 2013.  We are now working on the final phase of the DRC, which involves getting the Boston Dynamics Atlas humanoid robot to perform a series of real world challenges in a disaster response scenario. We are looking to hire several talented, motivated, and competitive individuals for a variety of engineering positions to help IHMC continue its success in this program. Long term, short term, post-doc, and internship positions are all available.

Starting Date: As soon as possible.

Location: Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC), Pensacola, FL

Application Deadline: Open until filled.

Humanoid walking and whole body motion control algorithm expert. Ideal candidate will have significant experience developing and implementing algorithms for whole body motion control of legged robots. In this phase of the DRC, it will be important to perform whole body tasks, such as climbing a ladder and getting out of a vehicle.

Ideal candidate should have the ability to write clean code in Java to the highest standards, have an understanding of advanced object-oriented programming concepts, and have excellent analytical, problem solving and organizational skills. Applicants must have excellent communication and documentation skills, be self-motivated and function with little micro-management, thriving in both a team and individual environment.
