The Centro de Investigacion en Matematicas (Center for Research in
Mathematics - CIMAT) invites applications for a tenure-track and two
research engineer positions. CIMAT is a federal research center in Pure and
Applied Mathematics, Probability, Statistics, and Computer Science, and
depends on the National Council of Science and Technology of Mexico
(CONACYT).

CIMAT has a research campus at the UNESCO world heritage city of Zacatecas,
in which a young team performs research in human-computer interaction (HCI),
robotics  and software engineering, with a good incidence in the state. The
main economic activity in Zacatecas is based on Mining, Agriculture, Tourism
and Sustainable Energy, with a rich cultural activity.

A strategic objective of CIMAT and its computer science department, is to
consolidate both the Zacatecas campus and the robotics research team, and
hence to expand its influence in the state of Zacatecas. To reach this goal
CIMAT is hiring a group leader research scientist and two research engineers
with outstanding research and technical skills.

***1) Tenure track position in robotics at CIMAT, campus Zacatecas.***
The position is aimed to a researcher with a PhD degree working on robotics
with a strong component in mathematics and algorithms, particularly in
motion planning, control theory or machine learning. It is also suitable
that the candidate has experience and interest in human-robot and
human-computer interaction.

The opportunity corresponds to a tenure track position, which requires
performing cutting edge research and being the head of the research
activities in the campus of CIMAT at Zacatecas. The candidate should have
managing abilities for leading the campus. This position requires
interaction with the industry in the region and the government of the state
of Zacatecas. He/She should maintain a close collaboration with researchers
working in the campus of CIMAT at Guanajuato.

It is expected that the candidate has proven experience in robotics research
with publications in prestigious journals and conferences in the area e.g.
IEEE TRO, IJRR, AURO, RAS, ICRA, WAFR, IROS, etc.. It is also expected that
the candidate belongs to the national system of researchers in Mexico (SNI),
rank 1 or superior, or having the merits to obtain the award within a year
from the hiring date. The candidate should also be capable of advising
graduate students working on topics related to robotics research, and
teaching courses in the area.

  Applicants should send the following information in pdf  to
coordinacion_cc at cimat.mx
   1. Cover letter.
   2. Curriculum vitae.
   3. A statement describing the planned research. Include a proposed
starting date
   4.Two letters of recommendation which should be sent directly to
coordinacion_cc at cimat.mx
Applications from women candidates are highly welcomed.
  Applications will be accepted and reviewed until the available position is
given. The first selection round will start on July 1st 2020.

***2) Research engineer position in robotics at the Campus Zacatecas of
CIMAT***
The candidate must have a PhD degree (or being close to obtain it) in
robotics, human-computer interaction or related areas. Experience in
programming languages (C, C++, python, etc.), operating systems and networks
is required, but also knowledge about hardware and robots is suitable. The
candidate will be in charge of the  campus laboratories (e.g. robotics, HCI,
etc.) and will give the required maintenance to the robots, their
specialized software (e.g. ROS) and the labs’ network. The candidate will
also be in charge of maintaining operational equipment to perform research
in human-robot and human-computer interaction, for instance, Virtual Reality
equipment and high performance computers. It is also very important for the
candidate to be able to work on technological projects with the industry and
implement solutions to complex high tech problems. The candidate should also
be capable of teaching courses in the area.

Applicants should send the following information in pdf  to
coordinacion_zac at cimat.mx
  1.Cover letter.
  2.Curriculum vitae.
  3.Two letters of recommendation which should be sent directly to
coordinacion_zac at cimat.mx
Applications from women candidates are highly welcomed.
Applications will be accepted and reviewed until the available position is
given. The first selection round will start on July 1st 2020.

***3) Research engineer position in robotics at the Campus Zacatecas of
CIMAT***
The candidate must have an engineering degree in mechatronics with a master
degree in a related area and experience working with hardware, particularly
with drones and robots in general, and their corresponding hardware and
software components. Experience with power supplies, servomotors, sensors,
design and manufacturing of mechanical devices (3D printers, CAD and CAM) is
desirable. The candidate will be in charge of the hardware in the different
laboratories of the campus, for instance, equipping the robots with the
required mechanical and electronic devices, or giving maintenance to the
human-computer interaction equipment, etc. He/She must also be able to work
on technological projects with the industry and implement solutions to
complex high tech problems.

Applicants should send the following information in pdf to
coordinacion_zac at cimat.mx:
