[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Five PostDoc Positions in Mobile Robotics at the Oxford Robotics Institute - University of Oxford

Maurice Fallon-3
The Oxford Robotics Institute is seeking outstanding candidates for five full-time PostDoc positions.

Our vision is to develop the mobile autonomy systems necessary to enable robots to navigate in real unstructured, poorly lit and dynamic environments; to move across challenging terrain, to carry out survey missions and return to their starting locations.

The research will be domain-independent and applied to walking robots as well as flying and rolling robots. A number of the candidates will join the newly formed Dynamic Robot Systems Group:

Potential research areas include:
- Visual-inertial state estimation
- Dynamic motion planning and control for quadrupeds and micro aerial vehicles
- Navigation and mapping
- Contact sequence planning
- Mission planning under uncertainty
Applicants in related areas will also be considered.

The posts are funded by EPSRC and are fixed-term until 31 March 2021.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr Maurice Fallon ([hidden email] <mailto:[hidden email]>), Dr Ioannis Havoutis ([hidden email] <mailto:[hidden email]>) and Professor Nick Hawes ([hidden email] <mailto:[hidden email]>).
