Open Position: Post-doctoral position at the Collaborative Robotics and
Intelligent Systems (CoRIS) institute, Oregon State University

Description: The successful candidate will develop novel robotics
interfaces for grasping and manipulation, visualizations, and algorithms
for enabling remote robotic grasp and manipulation testing. As part of
their responsibilities, the candidate will oversee a diverse team of
undergraduates and graduates working on both software and hardware related
to robotic manipulation. The position is expected to be filled by April,
but the start date is negotiable. The duration of the position is up to two
years, with a renewal at one year.

The team: This project is joint between Oregon State University’s CoRIS
Institute and the University of Massachusetts Lowell NERVE Center. The
CoRIS Institute consists of nearly a dozen core faculty in Robotics and is
highly collaborative both within the group and with their colleagues in AI
and Machine Learning in EECS. Advising faculty for this project are Drs.
Cindy Grimm and Ravi Balasubramanian. The NERVE Center is under the
direction of Dr. Holly Yanco and is a state-of-the-art robotics testing
facility. Both labs have regular interactions with the broader community,
including industry and government labs.

Duties and Responsibilities: These include: 1) Developing a novel robotic
grasping and manipulation benchmarking interface that supports remote
testing, 2) Overseeing a diverse team of graduate and undergraduates across
both institutions (building and maintenance of novel physical benchmarking
facilities), and 3) Presentation of work at conferences and to industry and
governmental sponsors.
