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 
rolling robots.

Potential research areas include:
- Visual-inertial state estimation
- Dynamic motion planning and control for quadrupeds and micro aerial 
vehicles
- 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 
<mailto:nickh at robots.ox.ac.uk>).
