The CSIRO Robotics Research Group is seeking a highly talented and dedicated recent (or very soon to be) PhD graduate with significant experience in modelling and control of highly dynamical systems and particularly of legged robots. The successful candidate will work on new research projects in the area of Legged Robotics with the objective of developing autonomous robots that are capable of traversing very complex and challenging indoor and outdoor 3D environments. Specifically, the postdoctoral fellow will focus on developing novel modelling, estimation, planning and control methodologies for multi-legged/multi-limbed robots characterized by many degrees of freedom (DOFs), complex multibody dynamics, and uncertainties in sensing and actuation. These methodologies will be tested and validated using various medium- and large-scale robotic platforms developed by the Robotics Research Group. The position is open for Australian and international candidates.

CSIRO Robotics Group:
The CSIRO Robotics Group, located at the Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT), Brisbane, is part of the Cyberphysical Systems Research Program of Data61, and is one of the leading robotics and autonomous systems research groups in the world. It develops foundational and applied research in robotic and autonomous systems for a broad range of domains, including agriculture, mining, biodiversity and biosecurity, environmental research and monitoring, advanced manufacturing, cultural heritage and online learning, and other scientific and applied areas. The Robotics Group has approximately 45 researchers and engineers, as well as a significant number of student interns, research interns and visiting scientists. It has extensive laboratory facilities and research infrastructure, and collaborates closely with many other research groups in Australia and worldwide.

Applications Close: 11:59pm AEST, Sunday 12 November 2017
