---------------------------------------------------

This postdoctoral position topic is part of the project PROMPT. PROMPT 
is a collaborative project between LS2N and IRISA. PROMPT aims at 
drastically increasing the performance for the new industrial robots 
during the achievement of non-repetitive tasks requiring an adaption to 
the environment. One of the research axes is to have a better 
understanding of the sensor-based controller behavior, in particular 
their singularity cases.

Recently, we introduced a concept named the “hidden robot”. This concept 
was first used to determine the singularity cases of a vision-based 
controller dedicated to parallel robots and was later extended to deal 
with the singularity cases of more general controllers. The idea is to 
understand that the equations used in many interaction models of 
sensor-based controllers are the same as the kinematic equations of a 
virtual parallel robot and thus, their singularities are identical.

Therefore we are expecting to recruit a Postdoctoral Fellow with a 
strong experience in kinematics of parallel robots with skills in 
algebraic methods (especially Groebner bases) for solving systems of 
polynomials OR a Postdoctoral Fellow working in advanced algebraic 
methods but with strong interest in transferring her/his knowledge to 
physical application cases.

The candidate should also show abilities to quickly integrate a team 
composed of 5 researchers (Sébastien Briot, François Chaumette, 
Abdelhamid Chriette, Olivier Kermorgant and Philippe Martinet) and 2 PhD 
students working on the proposed field. Obviously, classical skills for 
graduated doctors (list non exhaustive: autonomy, leadership on their 
fields, ability to write papers, student supervision) are also expected.

More information about the topic and the procedure for applying to it 
are detailed on:
