Dear all,

The Robotics, Action, Perception team from LAAS-CNRS in Toulouse, France 
is seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow to join our team in 
the area of agricultural robotics. All details about the job, the 
expected profile and the application procedure are given below.

Looking forward to receiving your application,

Dr. Viviane Cadenat.
/Robotics, Action, Perception Team,
Laboratory for Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS-CNRS).
7 Avenue du Colonel Roche
BP 54200
31031 Toulouse cedex 4, France/

*Job description:*
The research conducted by the Robotics, Action, and Perception team 
(RAP) mostly takes place within the fields of perception, sensor-based 
motion and sensor integration in robotics. The RAP team is offering a 
two years postdoc position for a highly motivated research fellow with 
special interest with agricultural robotics and autonomous navigation. 
The research to be developed will take place within the DESHERB'EUR 
project. This project involves a close collaboration between LAAS and 
Naïo Technologies, a company which designs and markets robots for 
agriculture and viticulture. This project aims at elaborating a new 
range of agricultural straddling robots allowing to weed vineyards and 
vegetables plantations. More precisely, the goal is to develop an 
elaborated autonomous strategy allowing the robot to navigate throughout 
the farm while guaranteeing persons and goods safety. The successful 
candidate will work in collaboration with a PhD student, a research 
engineer, and permanent researchers from RAP team. He/she will be 
strongly involved in the navigation strategy design together with the 
experimental validation

*Expected profile :*
Applicants should hold a PhD degree in robotics. They should have a 
strong background in robotics, visual navigation, obstacle avoidance, 
SLAM, robot control engineering. Mastery of C/C++ languages, Linux, ROS, 
Python is also required.
An experience in agricultural robotics is a plus.

*How to apply :*
Send an email with a CV and a cover letter to :
Viviane Cadenat (cadenat at laas.fr)
Michel Devy (michel.devy at laas.fr)
