[robotics-worldwide] [jobs]: Postdoc Position in Singularity Analysis of Sensor-based Controllers (*deadline 31st December 2017*)

Sébastien BRIOT-2
[jobs] Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Robotics (Singularity Analysis of
Sensor-based Controllers)

Laboratory of Digital Sciences of Nantes (LS2N), Ecole Centrale de
Nantes, France

Salary:   around 1900 euros net per month

Fixed term for one year, potential extension for a second year

Closing Date: December 31st, 2017

Interview Date:  January 2018

The job cannot start later than March 1st, 2018

---------------------------------------------------

This postdoctoral position topic is part of the project PROMPT. PROMPT
is a collaborative project between LS2N and IRISA. PROMPT aims at
drastically increasing the performance for the new industrial robots
during the achievement of non-repetitive tasks requiring an adaption to
the environment. One of the research axes is to have a better
understanding of the sensor-based controller behavior, in particular
their singularity cases.

Recently, we introduced a concept named the “hidden robot”. This concept
was first used to determine the singularity cases of a vision-based
controller dedicated to parallel robots and was later extended to deal
with the singularity cases of more general controllers. The idea is to
understand that the equations used in many interaction models of
sensor-based controllers are the same as the kinematic equations of a
virtual parallel robot and thus, their singularities are identical.

Therefore we are expecting to recruit a Postdoctoral Fellow with a
strong experience in kinematics of parallel robots with skills in
algebraic methods (especially Groebner bases) for solving systems of
polynomials OR a Postdoctoral Fellow working in advanced algebraic
methods but with strong interest in transferring her/his knowledge to
physical application cases.

The candidate should also show abilities to quickly integrate a team
composed of 5 researchers (Sébastien Briot, François Chaumette,
Abdelhamid Chriette, Olivier Kermorgant and Philippe Martinet) and 2 PhD
students working on the proposed field. Obviously, classical skills for
graduated doctors (list non exhaustive: autonomy, leadership on their
fields, ability to write papers, student supervision) are also expected.

More information about the topic and the procedure for applying to it
are detailed on:
