We are seeking an electrical engineer for the Robotics and Medical Systems
Program at SRI International.  You will join a team of high performance
individuals to help lead the designs of a new generation of robotic systems
leveraging novel technologies and innovation created within SRI Robotics. We
are looking for demonstrated capability to innovate, lead new developments
and turn ideas into functional systems. The candidate will have a passion to
break new ground with a background of developing practical solutions for new
technologies or products and enjoys the challenge and experience of creating
truly unique systems.

A recent focus within SRI Robotics has been on human-inspired robotic
platforms, including bipedal locomotion, scalable 6+ DoF manipulators, and
dexterous end-effector development. The ideal candidate will be motivated to
leverage these component technologies paired with legacy and additional SRI
project technologies to create new and novel robotic platform capabilities
targeting a breadth of government and commercial markets.

The position will require a wide breath of technical and interpersonal
skills, ranging from performing detailed engineering development to
interacting with customers and developing a vision for new programs.

--Lead and contribute to the development of novel embedded systems, sensor
development, motor controllers, communication systems and electronics in a
variety of robotic platforms
--Generation, design and development of new ideas turning them into
functional prototypes
--Planning, management and execution of development projects
--Generate ideas for new programs and contribute to government and
commercial proposal efforts
--Support the commercialization and transition of new technologies into the

--BS, MS or PhD in electrical or computer engineering
--5+ years of advanced graduate or professional hands-on experience desired
in robotics or related R&D fields
--Solid electrical hardware design engineering skills coupled with
analytical and test experience
--A combination of expertise in the following areas is desirable:
        --Embedded software development (C/C++) targeting custom motor
controllers and/or embedded devices
        --Power electronics, analog and digital circuits, and motor driver
        --Sensor design, development and integration
        --Control theory implementation (e.g. PID)
--Knowledge and experience transitioning designs from concept to schematic
to printed circuit (PCB) implementation (Altium preferred, but not required)
--Experience working with and developing for communication protocols which
may include:
        --CAN or EtherCAT
        --Ethernet and USB
--Motivation and desire for hands-on design, development, and testing
--Ability to self-manage time across multiple projects
--Independently motivated to take action on high-level requirements
--Robotics background and experience desired

Other Requirements
