[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Full-time MS/BS-level Position in Robot Vision/Manipulation at NASA JPL
FULL-TIME BS/MS-LEVEL POSITION AVAILABLE IN ROBOT VISION/MANIPULATION
NASA JET PROPULSION LABORATORY, PASADENA, CA
The Computer Vision Group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in
Pasadena, California, is looking for a BS/MS-level programmer to
support research in robot vision with emphasis on vision-guided
manipulation. The position is available immediately, and will remain
open until filled.
JPL conducts research in robot vision, manipulation and autonomy for
both terrestrial and planetary applications. This position will
support basic and applied research on autonomous manipulation in
traditional human environments, underwater, and in space. Current
areas of emphasis include semantic manipulation via deep neural
networks, and manipulation primitives for supervised autonomy.
The successful candidate will have a degree(s) in Engineering,
Physics, Math, Computer Science or a related field, a solid background
in computer science, experience with GNU/Linux-based software
development, and fluency in C++ and Python. Experience in computer
vision and with ROS will be highly valued.
Applicants should prepare a single PDF document containing:
- a curriculum vitae (including publications),
- contact information for at least three referees,
