Applications are invited for one Research Engineer grant at the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR), Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), University of Lisbon, Portugal. The selected candidates will work on the H2020 project SciRoc (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.sciroc.eu&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=rMsyNKNrTd3RNlpHhDcqdbvRCchdRemHFInOdYtzFUc&s=h-fuouVEmN4effqr_RuMZDoizDUiMNZzvqIATFvJ9Cc&e=), about scientific competitions concerning the Smart Cities general theme, and in particular in technical aspects linked to the European Robotics League (ERL - https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__eu-2Drobotics.net_robotics-5Fleague_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=rMsyNKNrTd3RNlpHhDcqdbvRCchdRemHFInOdYtzFUc&s=s4pbg0i-LODosGnf1PhaiZAaZIay3EGfrL1nUpkzy0U&e=) Consumer Service Robots Challenge (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__eu-2Drobotics.net_robotics-5Fleague_erl-2Dconsumer_about_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=rMsyNKNrTd3RNlpHhDcqdbvRCchdRemHFInOdYtzFUc&s=uD_SJU_F5miXsMRRhppqZBoWRCGCTNmAKSA3SUbYR8A&e=).

This Research Engineer position targets candidates holding a Bachelor or Master degree (or equivalent). The selected candidates is expected to work on software development to automate benchmarking of robot tasks during ERL tournaments, and to assist in the technical aspects of organizing ERL tournaments along each Season. The latter will include traveling to some of the current network of ERL Consumer test beds, spread around Europe (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.eu-2Drobotics.net_robotics-5Fleague_erl-2Dconsumer_certified-2Dtest-2Dbeds_index.html&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=rMsyNKNrTd3RNlpHhDcqdbvRCchdRemHFInOdYtzFUc&s=z7coYtGF-dzMw4wuAfwlcbMoj5YuhlTeKZKjWN53z88&e=), enabling contacting with leading Labs in European Robotics research.

The grant will be supervised by Prof. Pedro U. Lima and Dr. Meysam Basiri at IST and ISR.

The research will be conducted at the Intelligent Robots and Systems group (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__welcome.isr.tecnico.ulisboa.pt_projects-5Fcat_irsg_-29of&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=rMsyNKNrTd3RNlpHhDcqdbvRCchdRemHFInOdYtzFUc&s=3tp0_ZGKyqySdbZj5j5YJaAPgLzCKLD7MFCsGIBZ-wk&e= the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR/IST).
