under the direction of Prof. Michael Yip, invites applications for up a
fully funded post-doctoral researcher position in *Reinforcement Learning
and **Robot Motion Planning **for Surgical Robotics and Human-Robot
Collaboration*. The candidate will be starting new research projects in
real-time methods for planning complex robot manipulations in uncertain
environments and environments with humans. A significant focus of the
position will be in fundamental algorithm development and candidates are
expected to have strong evidence of this in past research.

The post-doc start date is February 2017 or after, and positions are for 12
months with renewal. The candidate are expected to lead independent
research projects, work closely with our medical collaborators, mentor
students, and publish in several high-impact journals each year.

Applicants should have evidence of a strong CS background, exceptional
communication skills, outstanding analytical skills and demonstrated
independence as a researcher. A publication record in high-impact factor
conferences and journals in machine learning or robotics is required.

*To Apply:*

Applications (assembled as a single PDF file) should contain

-        a cover letter

-        a complete CV, university transcripts

-        names and contact information of three references (expected to
provide letters of recommendation)

-        copies of up to three relevant scientific papers

A link to your personal website or multimedia portfolio highlighting your
work in robotics is encouraged. Send applications and specific questions to
