The Intelligent Systems Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology is looking for a postdoctoral researcher interested in pushing the capabilities of manufacturing robots through advancements in end-effector versatility, control, artificial intelligence (AI), and measurement science. Experience with some combination of sophisticated robotic grippers or hands, modern control, and AI approaches is desired. Research results will target high-quality, peer-reviewed publication venues.  Our ever-expanding testbed capabilities include state-of-the-art robotic hands, tactile sensing technologies, and robots arms with force control capabilities.

NIST's Postdoctoral Research Program supports a nationwide competitive postdoctoral program administered in cooperation with the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council. The postdoctoral program brings research scientists and engineers of unusual promise and ability to perform advanced research related to the NIST mission, shares NIST unique research facilities with the U.S. scientific and engineering communities, and provides a valuable mechanism for the transfer of research results from NIST to the scientific and engineering communities.
