[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] 12 positions in Aerial Robotics for ERC Advanced Grant GRIFFIN and other H2020 Projects

The Robotics Laboratory (GRVC) at the University of Seville (Spain) has
opened *12 positions *for:

·new H2020 *ERC Advanced Grant GRIFFIN* (Principal Investigator Anibal
Ollero) dealing with safe and long endurance flapping wing aerial robots
with perching and manipulation capabilities,

·the following new H2020 EU-funded projects also dealing with aerial
robotics: *HYFLIERS *on hybrid aerial-ground locomotion system for
inspection, *GAUSS* on safe operations with GALILEO-EGNOS, *SAFEDRONE*
on very low level operations with unmanned and manned aircrafts,
*RESIST* on applications to infrastructure inspections and *AeRoTwin *on
spreading excellence in aerial robotics

*Aerial robotics topics:*mechanical and mechatronic design, aerodynamic
modelling and control, aerial soft robotics and compliance, perception
and control for landing and manipulation, bioinspired perception and
control, motion planning with dynamic awareness,  collision detection
and avoidance, multi-robot systems,Bayesian estimation and sensor
fusion, machine learning, SLAM and real-time perception systems,

*We search:*

- Senior researcher positions with strong publication record, as well as
experience and solvency in managing robotic projects and work teams.

- Postdoc researcher positions with publication record and experience in
technically developing  projects. Candidates should have experience in
the above topics, and in participating in complex R&D projects.
Excellent English writing skills and capacity to prepare project

- PhD positions for motivated early stage researchers in aerial robotic
systems control/planning and perception. Candidates must have Master of
Science degree and a strong background and/or interest in some of the
above aerial robotics topics.

Selected applicants should have team working skills, have good or
excellent English and scientific writing skills. Should combine a strong
interest in scientific research with eagerness to transfer the
technology developed.

*We offer:*

- Senior researcher position: Contract with gross yearly amount to be

- Postdoc: Contract with gross yearly amount greater than 33.000 EUR.

- PhD positions: Contract, or scholarship including full social security
+ bonus depending on performance, reaching up to 25,000 EUR

For all positions, the initial contract will be for a period of 1 year
and will start in the third quarter of 2018. This contract could be
extended for a total of 3 or 4 years (depending on the project), subject
to good performance.


*The GRVC Laboratory:*

The candidate will be integrated in the GRVC Laboratory
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__grvc.us.es&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=SEPKrEOBZ-QcYgQAMs_tM2ExdWEQFxAY8xDc242rv98&s=yz5PD47fL10PQrTvEAYcCvRnR2tfdAISZZPSyp4FsQU&e=), one of the most relevant laboratories in aerial
robotics. GRVC is currently composed of more than 75 members with
heterogeneous and synergetic engineering background and skills
(aeronautics, mechatronics, computer science, telecommunication,
electronics, mechanical engineering) with long tradition in aerial
robotics, since 1998. In the last 10 years the GRVC researchers have led
or participated in more than 75projects in aerial robotics, including 20
Framework Program European projects (leading 5) and receiving more than
21 Million euros of external funding. Currently, it is participating in
13 active H2020 projects.

The GRVC is at the School of Engineering of Seville

With more than 6.000 students and 19
Engineering Bs. and MSc. degrees and 5 PhD programs, it is one of the
largest engineering academic centres in Europe.

Sevilla is a beautiful medium-sized city at the South of Spain with
profound historical and cultural background and vibrant modern life

Sevilla has good weather
conditions, it is close to beaches and environmentally protected areas,
has excellent gastronomy and is a relatively cheap city to live in.
