Nvidia Robotics Research Lab Seattle is now hiring at all levels

The goal of the new Nvidia Robotics Research Lab in Seattle is to develop the next generation of robots hat can robustly manipulate the physical world and interact with people  in a natural way. Toward this goal, the lab will bring together a diverse, interdisciplinary research team working on core robotics topics ranging from control and perception to task planning and collaboration, and critical related areas such as computer vision, deep learning, and natural language processing.

The lab will conduct basic research; lab members will be encouraged to publish their work and share code open source. It will be located near the University of Washington to enable close collaboration with students and faculty at UW. The lab will host numerous internships every year to foster education and collaboration, and researchers are encouraged to collaborate broadly with external institutes and robotics companies. Nvidia is well known for its team culture, and lab researchers will be able to closely interact with others within the company who are experts in computer vision, deep learning,  self-driving cars, and physics-based simulation.

We are currently seeking exceptional researchers at all levels, including post-docs, junior and senior research scientists, and sabbatical faculty visitors.

The following areas are of particular interest:

- robot manipulation
- robot control and reinforcement learning
- computer vision
- deep learning
- physics-based simulation
- natural language processing

Desired qualifications:

- Knowledge of theory and practice of robotics, or a related area with a strong interest in connecting your work to robotics scenarios.

- Excellent track record of research excellence with publications in top conferences and journals such as RSS, ICRA, IROS, T-RO, IJRR, NIPS, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ICML, AAAI, ACL, EMNLP, ...

- Strong communication skills and team player.

- Exceptional programming skills in Python, MATLAB, and/or C/C++; CUDA and fluency in modern deep learning toolsets such as TensorFlow or Torch is a plus.

With competitive salaries and a generous benefits package, Nvidia is widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers. We have some of the most brilliant people in the world and, due to unprecedented growth, our research and engineering teams are rapidly growing. If you're a creative and ambitious researcher with a real passion for robotics, we want to hear from you.  Nvidia is an equal opportunity employer.
