[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Research Engineer in Underwater Perception and Autonomy; University of Washington Applied Physics Laboratory
The Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington (APL-UW; Seattle, WA, USA) is looking for a robotics engineer to work on multiple funded projects in underwater perception/sensor fusion, SLAM, mission and path planning, and autonomous manipulation. In addition to this initially funded work, this position offers the applicant the opportunity to develop and manage their own research portfolio; manage a team of engineers and students; and participate in field testing both at UW and around the US.
APL-UW is a national center for advanced science and engineering research and development and education. APL-UW was formed in 1943 for the U.S. Navy to bring university research resources to bear on urgent WWII defense problems. APL-UW has developed an international reputation for its broad based programs in science, engineering and for designing, building, and deploying the advanced technology required to meet the research needs of numerous government and commercial sponsors. We conduct work along the spectrum from basic research to applied systems development.
Due to the nature of our work, candidates must be US citizens.
