Dear roboticists,

The MIST Laboratory (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__mistlab.ca&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=tbWk64KZC-mqB3lIeRDYBnVBzFyqOs7RtD5gB8l4hOQ&s=za6yMLNQxYdHxEyxFoQHA2ISUTXzNMtdjKU0QwNR-h4&e=), in the Computer Engineering
Department of Polytechnique, University of Montreal, is
taking applications two 2-year postdoctoral positions in robotics
in the context of a large project involving the use of robots for
disaster response (our research in 60 seconds: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__youtu.be_zawBXiAykvY&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=tbWk64KZC-mqB3lIeRDYBnVBzFyqOs7RtD5gB8l4hOQ&s=WwKOXVbsdRXZcylZeuVKBbJsbtezDI-pSc9z4kUqgUg&e=).

Successful candidates will have the chance to work in a stimulating
environment, in a lab with top of the line equipment and robots, in
close collaboration with industrial partners, robotics, and AI experts,
with a competitive salary.  In addition, Montreal is becoming a world
reference for artificial intelligence and robotics, as well as being a
lively, beautiful, and affordable city.

In particular we are looking for:

- an individual who would work on the customization of the flying robots
  used in the project to improve perception: information gathering,
  classification, sensor fusion, visual navigation. This will include
  selecting sensors and algorithms to provide robots and operators with
  proper situational awareness.

- an individual to work on human-swarm interaction using augmented and
  virtual reality, and 3D visualization. We are open to people with
  expertise in either human-robot interfaces, gaming, or AR/VR.

To apply, please refer to the instructions on https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__mistlab.ca_join&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=tbWk64KZC-mqB3lIeRDYBnVBzFyqOs7RtD5gB8l4hOQ&s=eMpmWhpoHxHoAfkt6p_wXTURoAJckY72hSgd9pcamuo&e=.
