Mon Oct 16 16:11:13 PDT 2017
The Oxford Robotics Institute is seeking outstanding candidates for five
full-time PostDoc positions.
Our vision is to develop the mobile autonomy systems necessary to enable
robots to navigate in real unstructured, poorly lit and dynamic
environments; to move across challenging terrain, to carry out survey
missions and return to their starting locations.
The postdoctoral researchers will contribute to research strands as part
of the EPSRC’s Hubs for Extreme and Challenging Environments, related to
the domains of Nuclear and Offshore robotics. The research will be
domain-independent and applied to walking robots as well as flying and
Potential research areas include:
- Visual-inertial state estimation
- Dynamic motion planning and control for quadrupeds and micro aerial
- Navigation and mapping
- Contact sequence planning
- Mission planning under uncertainty
Applicants in related areas will also be considered.
The posts are funded by EPSRC and are fixed-term until 31 March 2021.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr Maurice Fallon
(mfallon at robots.ox.ac.uk <mailto:mfallon at robots.ox.ac.uk>), Dr Ioannis
Havoutis (ioannis at robots.ox.ac.uk <mailto:ioannis at robots.ox.ac.uk>) and
Professor Nick Hawes (nickh at robots.ox.ac.uk
