The Harvard Agile Robotics Lab invites applications for up to two postdoctoral researcher positions broadly in the area of optimization and control of dynamic walking, manipulating, and flying robots. This is a unique opportunity to be a central member of a growing robotics lab at Harvard with significant research flexibility.

A PhD in CS, EE, ME, AE, or a related field is required. Prior experience with controlling and/or building physical robots is strongly preferred. Excellent software development skills with experience implementing modern planning and control algorithms is a major plus. Candidates will be expected to lead cutting-edge research projects, publish scholarly papers, and take on a mentorship role for undergraduate and graduate students.

Applications (assembled as a single PDF file) should contain a complete CV, a cover letter describing research interests and goals, a complete list of publications, copies of up to three relevant scientific papers, and the names and contact information of three references (expected to provide letters of recommendation). Applications should be emailed to Scott Kuindersma (scottk at seas.harvard.edu <mailto:scottk at seas.harvard.edu>) with the subject line "Postdoc application”.

Positions are for 12 months with the possibility to renew. Harvard University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
