postdoctoral scholar to help lead research projects in Computer Vision,
Reinforcement Learning & Robotics.

The Stanford-Toyota Research Center brings together researchers from fields
such as visual computing, machine learning, robotics, human-computer
interactions, intelligent systems, decision making, natural language
processing, and dynamic modeling and design. The focus is on the
development of innovative and impactful approaches, algorithms, and data,
with a comprehensive approach that includes research in perception,
learning, reasoning, and interaction.

[Project Description]

The mission of the project is to endow autonomous robots the ability to
perceive complex tasks. The research will involve leading and executing a
research vision in Learning and Semantic Reasoning to achieve
generalization in robotics. This effort touches on all fields of robotics:
Sensing and Vision, Reinforcement Learning, and planning & control. The lab
has expertise and platforms for social robot mobility and robot

Additional responsibilities include developing research objectives and
proposals; presentations and publications; liaising and networking with
colleagues and students; planning and organizing research resources and
workshops. The candidate will also be actively involved in mentoring
students in SVL.


- PhD degree in computer science, robotics, engineering or related field.

- Extensive experience with robotics research demonstrated by a strong
track record of academic publications.

- Expertise in one or more of the following: Deep Learning, Reinforcement
Learning, Robotics.

- Knowledge of Linux and development on Linux systems; proven system
integration and software architecture skills; and knowledge of modern
software development practices and engineering tools, specifically
experience with simulation environments and ROS (Robot Operating System),
is desired.

- Proficiency with using and development with deep learning frameworks.
