The Robotics Institute has multiple staff positions for highly motivated
and dedicated people who want to advance the state of the art in robot
systems. The candidate should be able to work with a diverse group of
people and handle a broad ranging of responsibilities. We are looking
for people who can develop experimental research applications based on
knowledge of the theoretical foundations of computation, including
algorithms, data structures,  and state-of-the-art programming
methodologies. The candidate should have excellent analytical, problem
solving and organizational skills with an ability to comprehend system
and application related specifications and requirements. Finally, the
candidate must be able to effectively communicate, both orally and in
writing, with other team members including students, staff, faculty, and
external collaborators.

Basic Requirements

1. Bachelor's degree in information systems or computer science and
knowledge of research techniques applicable to the development and
validation of complex computer based systems or equivalent combination
of training and experience. Knowledge of the specific domain application
areas and their methods, such as artificial intelligence, data systems,
machine learning, robotics and human computer interaction.

2. At least three years experience in computer systems or complex
application programming, preferably in a research and development team

3. Skill in applying functional and imperative programming languages and
methods, including C, C++, Java, Perl and others for procedural,
object-oriented and database programming. Familiarity with developing
and debugging ROS programs (Robot Operating System) in C++ in a linux
environment is especially important.

If hired, the candidate will enjoy all of the benefits of working in the
Robotics Institute. These include generous medical, tuition, retirement
benefits as well as the intangibles one experiences working in a
high-powered academic department like the Robotics Institute.
