[robotics-worldwide] Postdocs available [jobs]

Greg Trafton
The Navy Center for Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence
(NCARAI) at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington DC is
looking for 1-2 postdocs to join our team.  Our team is
multidisciplinary and includes roboticists, perception scientists,
cognitive scientists, and computer scientists.

Our lab's focus is primarily on human robot interaction from a
computational cognitive and social perspective.  We have openings for
postdocs who specialize in:

* Cognitive Robotics
* Human Robot Interaction
* Perception on a mobile robot
* Navigation/Mobility
* Manipulation
* Cognitive / Social modeling

We are currently recruiting for a project that focuses on social
norms, proxemics, and cognitive/social interaction.

We will consider people with expertise in any area of mobile
robotics, though an open mind, an ability to work well in medium size
groups, and a strong publishing record are all required.

Our postdoc deadline is November 1, so please contact me immediately
([hidden email]) if you are interested in becoming a
postdoc with us.  Our postdoc positions typically last for 2-3 years.
You must be a US citizen to apply for this position.  Pay is ~80K;
details about the postdoc program itself are available at
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__hroffice.nrl.navy.mil_jobs_postdoc.htm&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=itSlFlcEBYCp05Iti9A1r90FRbxKRXVHeduIMFz0iqo&s=bIZ0emJf_df4lFQtPgAYhRGwhKQYotUDx3lOgMEhCMY&e= and check out the NRC
postdoc program.

We have outstanding facilities and resources.  Our newest platforms
are three HUBO-DRC+ robots.  We also have three MDS anthropomorphic
robots, each with highly expressive heads and torsos with close to 50

Our lab is a 50,000 square foot facility (the Laboratory for
Autonomous Systems Research), which has unique environmental high bays
and laboratories for experimentation. The hallmark is a 150x75x30
reconfigurable high bay, which will has full motion capture coverage
over the entire space, floodable areas and many more features to
support state-of-the-art research. Other environments within our new
facility include: a live-growth tropical rain forest; a desert
environment with rock walls; a littoral environment (which includes a
25 x 50 pool with an adjustable slope on one end and wave generators
on the other end for creating surf conditions); and an outdoor
highland forest environment with water features and "box canyons"
built out of boulders.
