[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] 2 post-doc positions in multi-contact whole-body control of locomotion and manipulation, University of Edinburgh, UK

Zhibin Li-2
Dear colleagues,

The Edinburgh Centre for Robotics (ECR), University of Edinburgh,
invites international applications for 11 full-time Postdoctoral
Research Associates (Grade 7) in Robotics, Control, and Machine Learning
to join our new EPSRC funded Robotics and Artificial Intelligence(RAI)
hubs: ORCA, NCNR and FAIR-SPACE.

Particularly, Project A holds *two positions for multi-contact
locomotion and manipulation*:
-Multi-contact planning and optimization: optimization based and/or
learning based planning and control of multi-contact movements in
complex environment, particularly for failure recovery, eg getting up
from prone position.
-Dexterous and coordinated manipulation exploring redundancy and
maximising energy efficiency for manipulation of samples, assembly of
complex structures using tools, as well as manipulation assisted by the
coordination from the mobile base.

More details (project description, required knowledge, skills and
experience, etc.) can be found in:

Informal inquiries regarding Project A can be addressed to Dr Zhibin Li
(zhibin.li[at]ed.ac.uk), please include [post-doc] in the email title
and attach CV with a publication list if possible.

Best regards,
Alex
