Job Description
---------------------
Postdoc Positions in Marine and/or Aerial Robotics:  The postdoctoral
researcher will work on single and/or multi-robot systems to enable the
deployment of fleets of USV and/or UAVs in real-world environments. The work
may be in any field, including motion and path planning, control,
coordination, flocking, sensors and sensor fusion, computer vision, obstacle
avoidance, high level planning, and scheduling. The researcher will advise
and co-advise a team of PhD and Master’s students (usually 1-5 students) to
support the candidates’ research intentions. Additionally, a team of
hardware engineers at MRS group will support research by maintaining 30+
swarm aerial platforms and boats. Although the positions are targeted for
fundamental research of the postdoc candidate (continuation in prior
research of the postdoc candidate is preferred), involvement of the
researcher with the application-oriented projects of the group is also
welcome as we believe that robotics should be motivated by applications.

PhD Positions in Marine and/or Aerial Robotics:  The PhD topics in single
and/or multi-robot systems USV and/or UAVs may include: motion and path
planning, control, coordination, flocking, sensors and sensor fusion,
computer vision, obstacle avoidance, high level planning, and scheduling.
The PhD students may advise and co-advise Master’s students and teach in
robotic practicals and seminars, but this is not mandatory. Research will be
supported by a team of HW engineers at MRS group by maintaining 30+ swarm
aerial platforms and boats.

Research Engineer in Marine and/or Aerial Robotics:  The Engineers will work
on single and/or multi-robot systems to enable the deployment of fleets of
USV and/or UAVs in real applications and industrial projects. We look for
both HW as well as SW Engineers with a strong interest in robotics.


Work Benefits
------------------
Positions are fully funded with social benefits and offer a salary
competitive to most research positions in European countries. This salary
also exceeds the average income of similiar company positions in the Czech
Republic, enabling a comfortable life in the historical centre of Prague.
Our group provides a friendly and relaxed working atmosphere with organized
team-building events, such as ski trips, hikes, barbecue parties, team
dinners, and mainly our outdoor experimental camps in the countryside hosted
3-4 times a year, where we enjoy the opportunity of unlimited outdoor flying
in various environments (field, forest, lake, urban, etc.).

About Our Group
----------------------
Multi-robot Systems (MRS) Group at Czech Technical University in Prague
integrates various research disciplines required for the design,
implementation, experimental evaluation, and application of complex robotic
systems in real-world conditions. Research streams studied by MRS Group
members include motion and trajectory planning, locomotion generation,
control, communication, coordination, image processing, and stabilization of
groups of ground and aerial robots. From the application point of view, MRS
deals with environment monitoring by swarms of micro aerial vehicles,
self-stabilized convoys of ground and aerial robots, search & rescue
robotics, monitoring and mapping of historical buildings by aerial robots,
and aerial manipulation, among others. MRS has participated with winning
results in presitgious international robotic competitions, such as the
MBZIRC and DARPA competitions, in which we have enjoyed numerous successes
and will continue to attend.


Required Skills
--------------------

For Postdoc positions:

- A PhD degree in computer engineering, artificial intelligence, computer
science, robotics, swarms, or other related fields
- Excellent track record, such as publications in high-IF conferences and
journals
- Excellent written and spoken English skills, including strong experience
with publication activities
- Experience with real UAV or USV systems is an advantage, but not required
- Passion for robotics, mathematics, programming, and abstract thinking  
- Ability to develop and implement complex algorithms efficiently
- Experience with ROS, Gazebo, and Git is desirable

For PhD positions:

- A Master’s degree in computer engineering, computer science, robotics, or
other related fields
- Excellent results during Master’s studies (student publications or project
results)
- Experience with C++ is strongly required
- Good written and spoken English skills

For Engineer positions:

- A Master’s degree in computer engineering, computer science, robotics, or
other related fields
- Good results during Master’s studies (student publications or project
results)
- Experience with C++ is strongly required for SW engineer
- Experience with HW design is required for HW engineer
- Good written and spoken English skills


Starting Date
------------------
Your employment can start immediately, but a later start is also possible.


How to Apply and Contact
-----------------------------------
Please send to [hidden email] the following information:
1. Letter of motivation with specification of your interest and experience
with aerial or marine robots or swarms
2. Your CV, with links to your homepage and videos/results if available.
3. Publication list and copies of 3 major publications (for postdocs)
