[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PhD and Postdoc Positions available in the Robomechanics Lab at CMU
The Robomechanics Lab at CMU has multiple positions available for new PhD
students interested in legged robotics, controls, mechanical design,
learning and motion planning, autonomy, and related areas. We are
particularly looking for students interested in learning and optimization
for control of legged robots as well as fielding systems for environmental
monitoring of soil contaminants, although any topics related to the lab's
research will be considered.
The lab also has a postdoc position available starting immediately or
within the next six months for a researcher interested in legged locomotion
in challenging environments. In particular, we are staring a new project
focused on finding and detecting environmental contamination in remote
locations that will require improvements in mobility, autonomy, sampling,
and machine learning in the field.
The ideal candidate would have experience in field robotics focused on
controls or autonomy. Experience with environmental monitoring or chemical
sensing is a plus. They must show a strong research track record, indicated
by high impact results and publications in top journals and conferences.
The postdoc will be expected to lead a team of graduate and undergraduate
students and work with the sponsor to manage the project in addition to
pushing forward a research agenda. The postdoc may also help mentor
students in the lab working on other projects in addition to the
environmental sampling project.
Exceptional postdoctoral candidates should email Prof. Johnson directly
with a CV and one paragraph about why they are interested in this position
