[robotics-worldwide] [Jobs] Robotics / Navigation Positions at Honda Research Institute (Silicon Valley)

Soshi Iba
Honda Research Institute USA (HRI-US) strives to be at the cutting edge of Honda's research and development activities.
Driven by Honda's global slogan - The Power of Dreams - we pursue emerging technologies and bring them into reality
to make people happy by engaging daily in highly scientific, pioneering work.
We realize that dreams don't come from organizations, systems, or money.
They come from people, and we seek people who have such a challenging spirit to join us.

Currently, HRI-US (Silicon Valley) is searching for a self-motivated candidate capable of formulating and solving original problems in robotics.

This new member is expected to create new research ideas that solve complex and real world problems,
and to contribute to scientific publication. He/she will have opportunities to build relationships with research partners at
world-class universities and work with other Honda Research Institutes in Europe and in Japan.
