[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Two Postdoc Positions - mapping and estimation @ Oxford

Maurice Fallon-3
Dear Colleagues,

We are seeking 2 PostDocs to join the Dynamic Robot Systems group
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ori.ox.ac.uk_drs_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=mOf_5uSs8_x0br-0cjJAmYB9mMZTS7_gKKPdVZ6cPcI&s=Sa-1pfpQ62BACi5llpOk7m7M92VhDPQb4zOn_uX6aTc&e=> of the Oxford Robotics Institute
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ori.ox.ac.uk&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=mOf_5uSs8_x0br-0cjJAmYB9mMZTS7_gKKPdVZ6cPcI&s=HpXj7rqvXBf5SJUoxe5JArm6TCYCcdAnHsykGSwviY8&e=>. At DRS we work on estimation, navigation, motion
planning and control for dynamic walking robots in real-world environments.

PostDoc 1 will contribute to the H2020 project THING (subTerranean
Haptic INvestiGator). The project is focused on developing sensing,
estimation and control technologies for walking robots - fusing
haptic/contact sensing with traditional navigation.

PostDoc 2 will contribute to the EPSRC project ORCA. The project is
focused on developing technology for industrial inspection. Our role
will focus on 3D navigation and mapping - using the Anymal quadruped. 
This will involve research in 3D reconstruction, active mapping and
visual-inertial fusion.

Requirements:
- PhD/DPhil in robotics, computer vision, controls, or closely related field
- Excellent academic track record in topics such as mapping, 3D
reconstruction, SLAM and sensor fusion
- Excellent programming skills
- Outstanding team and communication skills

Desirable:
- Experience working in field robotics or with walking robots
- Publications in relevant fields at leading conferences/journals.
- Unix/Linux, ROS, Git

How to apply and further information can be found at:
