[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Manipulation postdoc opening at Harvard
The Harvard Agile Robotics Lab, invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow position focused on developing algorithms for dynamic manipulation. Ideal candidates will have a strong research track record in robotics, machine learning, optimization, or control and be motivated to lead a research effort that involves developing new algorithms and evaluating them on state-of-the-art manipulation platforms.
This project will afford the candidate a great deal of intellectual flexibility to explore combinations of model-based control with machine learning to achieve fast, precise, and reliable manipulation.
A PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or a related field is required. Candidates will be expected to carry out a creative and independent research agenda, publish scholarly papers, and take on a mentorship role for undergraduate and graduate students at Harvard.
Applications (assembled as a single PDF file) should contain a complete CV, a cover letter describing research interests and goals, a complete list of publications, copies of up to three relevant scientific papers, and the names and contact information of three references (expected to provide letters of recommendation). Applications should be emailed to Scott Kuindersma (scottk at seas.harvard.edu) with the subject line “Postdoc 2018 application”.
Please also feel free to email me if you have questions about the position!
