I am seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Research position for a number of
new projects in Robotic Grasping and Manipulation. We recently received
funding to examine grasping in extremely cluttered environments
(specifically for the important problem of robotically sorting recycling),
examine approaches to control compliant and imprecise manipulation hardware
using purely visual approaches, and a few other projects related to
perception, planning, learning, and control for problems in grasping and
manipulation that will dramatically push the state of the art. 

More information about ongoing and previous work in the lab can be found at
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.eng.yale.edu_grablab_&d=DwICAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=O9lnhoO8YA7NNpLTsmTRGEiPPeaUqA_HU6xHZiJOe0A&s=mVbKfrp9e6E8xdthTAFbzLGkJ-6MxCF7iTlYZ7whrfo&e= , but most approaches involve leveraging
"mechanically-intelligent" hardware designs to improve performance in
unstructured environments with minimalist (and novel) approaches to
perception and control. 

Potential applicants might come from a range of backgrounds, but applicants
from backgrounds in perception, planning, learning, and/or control for robot
manipulation with significant hands-on/experimental experience would be

Excellent written and spoken English skills are essential. I am deeply
committed to a strong mentoring relationship with my lab group and creating
a fun, exciting, and productive work environment. In addition to technical
areas associated with the research project, successful applicants can expect
to gain experience in grant writing, student supervision, and project
management, as well as ties to industrial partners.  

Interested applicants should send a CV and other relevant brief information
describing their background, skill set and career goals to Prof. Aaron
Dollar (aaron.dollar at yale.edu <mailto:aaron.dollar at yale.edu> ).
