Robotics: Manipulation
Robotics: Manipulation (Job Number: P18INT-06)
Silicon Valley

This title includes multiple positions which focus on formulating and developing algorithms, and running experiments to advance research in robotics manipulation. The candidate is expected to work on one of the following topics:

  • Robotics manipulation using tactile sensors in unstructured environments
  • Robotics manipulation of deformable objects such as bed sheets and wire harnesses using deep reinforcement learning
  • Developing algorithms that allow robots to manipulate objects cooperatively with humans using learning from demonstration techniques



  • Ph.D. or highly qualified M.S. candidate in computer science, electrical engineering, or related field
  • Experience in deep learning and other machine learning methods such as recurrent neural networks
  • Experience in the following is a plus for some topics: tactile sensing, manipulation, grasping, motion planning, real robots, or physics engine such as MuJoCo and Bullet
  • Good programming skills in either C++ or Python
  • Experience in Robot Operating System (ROS)
