The High Consequence Automation and Robotics group at Sandia National Laboratories (Albuquerque, NM, USA) is accepting applications for both Postdoctoral Appointee and R&D Staff positions. The ability to obtain a United States Department of Energy Security Clearance is required. In general, Postdoctoral Appointee positions are intended for recent PhDs and are focused mostly on technical work, while staff opportunities may be suited to either recent graduates or mid-career professionals and require principal / lead investigator responsibilities such as developing proposals and leading teams as well as conducting technical work with excellence. It is possible for postdoctoral appointees to subsequently be hired into staff positions.

Responsibilities for all positions include developing, demonstrating and implementing novel methods for controlling heterogeneous networked teams of unmanned systems, and developing and implementing control systems for a variety of mechatronic and human-robot systems. Work will include the development of novel algorithms, testing and refining them in simulation, writing real-time control code to implement control algorithms on a variety of heterogeneous mobile aerial and ground systems, with different sensor, mobility and computational capabilities, and conducting field tests to evaluate the performance of the control algorithms. Work may also include supporting a variety of different technical and programmatic activities associated with the research, development and deployment of robotic and unmanned systems, including software development, mechanical design and engineering, system dynamic modeling, sensor and perception system development, embedded and power electronics development, and testing. Work will be conducted in a fast-paced team environment devoted to rapidly developing and fielding novel control systems, unmanned systems, and robotic systems.
