[robotics-worldwide] [Jobs] Postdoctoral Vacancies on Grasping and Manipulation

Dongming Gan
 Dear Colleagues,

We are currently recruiting two postdocs based on a three-year research
project starting from 1st July 2018 to 30th June 2021. The research will
focus on the following related topics:
--- event-camera based slipping detection in robot grasping and manipulation
--- robotics vision and deep learning
--- grasping planning and optimization
--- new gripper/hand design and development
--- compliant robot manipulation and safe human robot interaction

Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) and a proven ability to
do excellent scientific research in Robotics, as evidenced by their
publications. The successful candidates will join the Faculty of
Engineering at KU and pursue research in Robotics at KU, which offers a
uniquely collaborative scientific research environment and outstanding
research facilities. Highly competitive, tax free, salary and benefits will
be offered to successful candidates. They will have the opportunity to
initiate and lead projects and work in interdisciplinary teams.

Khalifa University (KU) is a new, multi-cultural, co-educational
institution supported by the government of Emirate of Abu Dhabi, United
Arab Emirates. Degrees are offered at Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. levels in
the main Engineering disciplines, including Electrical Engineering,
Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, and
Biomedical Engineering. KU has a grand vision to be recognized as one of
the leading universities in the world. KU has identified Robotics and
Autonomous Systems as one of its strategic research priorities and has
established the KU Robotics Center (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.kustar.ac.ae_pages&d=DwIBaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=zeTZSTv3vjuvDG9Grrb7s5yNY0F8w9zdW9KmZyVMTyU&s=Soy7NP1UKph89B-57eYSpZZDKFBsWM1s5E5uyRf5Hus&e=
