Job opening: Postdoctoral Fellow, Northwestern University and 
Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago

The assistive & rehabilitation robotics laboratory (argallab) at 
Northwestern University and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago 
invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position. Our lab's 
research lies at the intersection of autonomous robots, machine learning 
and human rehabilitation. Our focus is on adding autonomy to assistive 
machines and we work with a range of hardware platforms, from smart 
wheelchairs to assistive robotic arms. We also are uniquely positioned 
as an autonomous robotics group housed within the #1 rehabilitation 
hospital in the United States. For more information, please visit: 

Minimum Experience:
* PhD degree in Robotics, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering or 
* Excellent oral and written communication skills.
* Proficiency in the development of robot control paradigms and 
higher-level behaviors, where development includes both writing code 
(C++, ROS, python) and its implementation on real hardware.
* Proficiency in debugging software and hardware systems.
* Creativity and independence in the identification of research problems 
and approaches to solving them.

Preferred Experience:
* Expertise in ROS and/or machine learning.
* Experience with subject studies.

Applications: Electronic only. Please email your CV and letter of intent 
(2-page limit) to the lab director, Prof. Brenna Argall, at this email 
address and with the subject line "Postdoc Application: Shared 
Autonomy". Promising applicants will be asked to follow up with letters 
of reference.
