[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PostDoc Positions in Mobile Robotics @ ShanghaiTech University

Sören Schwertfeger-2
The mobile robotics research group at ShanghaiTech University [1], lead
by Sören Schwertfeger [2], is working on various aspects of intelligent
mobile robotics, including, but not limited to robot performance
evaluation, especially map evaluation, robot autonomy and intelligence,
object detection, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) and urban
search and rescue robotics. We invite highly motivated individuals with
a Ph.D. degree to work with us in these exciting research areas. The
projects in our group are currently generously funded by the Shanghai
municipal government.

The School of Information Science and Technology (SIST) [3] in the newly
founded ShanghaiTech University has identified Robotics as one of its
central areas of research and is forming the ShanghaiTech Automation and
Robotics Center (STAR Center) [4] to facilitate this goal. China is the
biggest and fastest growing robotics market in the world [5], and the
cosmopolitan Shanghai is right in the center of that development [6],
hosting a multitude of robotics and high-tech companies (e.g. ABB,
FANUC, KUKA, SIASUN, ...). Located in the Zhangjiang High-Tech Park [7],
ShanghaiTech is offering an excellent research environment with generous
start-up support, copious collaboration opportunities (within the School
and University; with the Chinese Academy of Science; with Industry and
other local Universities), outstanding students and brand new campus
facilities.

If you have any questions you are very welcome to reply to this e-mail
or to arrange a meeting with Sören Schwertfeger [2] during ICRA 2017.

Qualifications:
(1) PhD degree in computer science or related areas.
(2) Good publication track record in international conferences or journals.
(3) Good hands-on experiences in implementing and testing complex
algorithms on real robots.
(4) Prior experience with ROS and field robotics is a plus.
(5) Good communication skills and capability of co-supervising research
students.
(6) Fluent in oral and written English.
(7) I am interested in international as well as Chinese candidates!

Applications:
Qualified applicants are invited to submit (all in English) a cover
letter, a CV including copies of three representative publications, and
two letters of reference to: [hidden email]. We provide
very competitive salary and benefits for this position.
