Postdoctoral researcher in perception-augmented telemanipulation

      Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS)
                 Örebro University, Sweden

In Short
The Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) is
looking to hire a postdoctoral researcher within the area of
perception-augmented telemanipulation. The researcher will work
within a team in the context of a nationally funded project.
The position is with a fixed term of 2 years. Applications are
accepted until May 23rd, 2017.

We are seeking a highly-motivated candidate for a project within
the area of perception systems and augmented autonomy for
telemanipulation.The application area focuses on robotized additive
manufacturing where industrial robots are used for cleaning tasks of
additive manufacturing machines. Using motion trackers operators
should be able to remotely operate a robot to successfully perform
and monitor the cleaning process.

Requirements and Application

Eligible for the appointment as postdoctoral researcher are applicants
holding a doctoral degree in Computer Science, Control Theory, Robotics
or in related subject areas. The doctoral degree should have been
awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline.
Candidates who have obtained their doctoral degree prior to that may
however also be considered if special grounds exist (leave of absence
due to illness, parental leave, clinical duties, an elected position
in a trade union, or other similar circumstances).

Prior experience in at least two of the following is required:
dense 3D mapping; motion planning / control of robot arms; teleoperation
systems for manipulation; autonomous systems for pick and place tasks;
machine learning; human-robot teaming. In addition, the candidate should
have excellent programming skills, and experience with Robotic Operating
System (ROS). Documented experience with collaborative projects is a plus.

Applications are accepted immediately through the Orebro University employment
system at:


Our ambition is to create a place of work that is characterised by gender
equality and diversity.
