Apologies for multiple postings

Dear colleagues,

In the KU Leuven Robotics Research Group postdoc we have opened Postdoc and PhD student positions. More information can be found through:

The Robotics Research Group at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Division of Production engineering, Machine design and Automation (PMA), started its robotics activities in the mid-1970s. The group was among the first to develop active force feedback for assembly operations. Already in 1980 it developed learning insertion algorithms based on stochastic automata. It has covered virtually all aspects of sensor-based robotics, from the high-level task specification down to low-level sensor-based control, and applied the research results in a variety of industrial applications. In the last decade the group shifted its attention towards service robots (behaviour-based mobile manipulation, shared control, learning control), medical robotics (natural interfaces, haptic bilateral control), industrial robot assistants, and active sensing. PMA has created several spin-off companies that are active in robotics-related activities, has initiated several free and open-source software projects in robotics (Orocos, KDL, iTaSC, ...), and has participated in a large number of robotics and control oriented EU projects.

Location: Leuven, Belgium

Application deadline: April 30, 2017
