[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Postdoc position in amphibious field robotics, BIOROB, EPFL, Switzerland

Auke Ijspeert
Postdoc position in amphibious field robotics

The Biorobotics laboratory (Biorob, https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__biorob.epfl.ch_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=y9JLKPZA9iNOP2tT2eRINx5bGYrd87YibTQIKZok4zE&s=D8oY80oIlvOvrs72FzTI_2tAi5gL1gsq4ead-Q9goLk&e=) at EPFL
(Lausanne, Switzerland) has one open postdoc position in amphibious
field robotics and biorobotics. The goal of the project is to
participate to the design and control of salamander-like robots capable
of swimming and walking for search-and-rescue applications. The work is
part of the Swiss NCCR in robotics, and involves collaborations with
other robotics laboratories in Switzerland. Several amphibious
prototypes exist in the lab, and the goal of the position is to improve
them mainly in terms of sensing, robustness, and locomotor abilities.
The position is fully funded for 2 years (possibly up to 4 years).

EPFL is one of the leading Institutes of Technology in Europe and offers
internationally competitive salaries and research infrastructure.


Candidates should have a Ph.D. and a strong publication record in
robotics. The ideal candidate should be a good robotics integrator and
have prior experience in:
- sensor integration
- programming of locomotion controllers for legged and snake-like robots
- experimental robotics
- (bonus) mechanical design of field robots and biorobots

Good communication and management skills are a plus. Fluency in oral and
written English is required.

How to apply for the Postdoc position:

The application should consists of a motivation letter (explaining why
you are interested in the project, and why you feel qualified for it), a
full CV, two or three relevant publications, and the email addresses of
two referees. PDF files are preferred. The files should be sent to
[hidden email].

Deadline and starting date:

The starting date is December 2018 (or soon after it).  Applications are
requested for Oct 19 2018, and will then be processed as they arrive
until the position is closed.
