The Edinburgh Centre for Robotics at the University of Edinburgh is 
seeking outstanding candidates for *four* full-time post-doctoral 
research fellowships.

Deadline: April 26, 2018
Apply here: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__bit.ly_2qjUADT&d=DwICaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=oX7gLusGNbtCTLxjcgtQr0qCG9QRdjqt88dPLhTF91Y&s=CBU0suJDe7GfkCddeJ9bOFAWN9hTUEHC3hOKVkUnCfE&e=

Our aim is to develop novel algorithmic solutions to the problem of 
robust navigation, high dimensional motion planning and compliant 
control on a variety of platforms ranging from the NASA Valkyrie 
Humanoid to the ANYMal quadruped and Husky bimanual manipulation systems.

The postdoctoral researchers will work closely within the themes of our 
newly awarded EPSRC Hubs in Robotics for Extreme and Challenging 
Environments (see link below), specifically in the domains of Space and 
Offshore robotics.

To fill these positions, we are looking for world leading experts in the 
areas of:
- High dimensional multi contact motion planning
- Motion optimisation and optimal control
- Dynamic motion adaptation and replanning
- Dense sensing in the loop for shared autonomy interfaces
- field experience with hardware platforms

World class research group and department, cutting edge hardware 
platforms and a vibrant city awaits.

Deadline for application is: April 26, 2018

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Sethu Vijayakumar 
(sethu.vijayakumar at ed.ac.uk) or Dr Michael Mistry (mmistry at inf.ed.ac.uk).
