The Next Step to Get Hired and Bring ROS to Real Life.

University of Sheffield, UK | Robotics Research Engineer

Add on 2 April, 2019

Dear colleagues,
robotics at Deepmind (London, UK) is looking for candidates in robotics
with focus on several research areas relevant to the field (details below).
Please contact me directly (fnori at google.com) for applying to this job post
and for requesting additional details.

DeepMind

DeepMind is an Alphabet company acquired by Google in 2014. Deepmind
focuses on using the best available technologies, together with our own
research, to address some of the world’s most pressing and complex
challenges. We work in fields from healthcare to energy efficiency,
collaborating with experts to build tools to support and improve their
work.  Collaborating with Google teams, we also apply our cutting edge
research to products used by millions of people around the world. These
real world applications of AI technology help us work towards one of
DeepMind’s purposes - to use intelligence to make the world a better place.

About our Team

DeepMind's mission <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__deepmind.com_about_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Uo7vzaA2skxnEHG-8LIVpByOHWTo3DWsa6hnsaod2l8&s=L745Jm1IzsT7YcxGTujKG3Q9Mjl-WsE6H_oTf9zOtNE&e=> is to solve intelligence
and use it to make the world a better place.

In the medium term, this means a lot of iterative blue-sky scientific
research. Today, we have hundreds of researchers on staff, including
numerous leaders in fields across AI & Machine Learning.

DeepMind ultimately wants to develop an AGI capable of dealing with a
variety of environments. A truly general AGI needs to be able to act on the
real world and to learn tasks on real robots. The aim of the Robotics Lab
at DeepMind is to endow robots with the ability to learn how to perform
complex manipulation and locomotion tasks. At Deepmind, experts in
different scientific fields (e.g. quantum chemistry, neuroscience, game
theory) collaborate with research scientists and software engineers to
solve grand challenges that would enable multiple scientific breakthroughs.
The Robotics Lab is a group of pioneering research scientists, research
engineers and software engineers uniquely specialised in Robotics at
Deepmind.

The Role

Our Robotics Research Team at DeepMind focuses on Machine Learning for
robotics, including but not limited to deep reinforcement learning
algorithms. The robotics lab collaborates with researchers in machine
learning to develop powerful general-purpose learning algorithms for
real-world robotics.

We’re looking for Robotics Research Engineers to work on the problem of
learning real robotics tasks with data-driven machine learning methods. You
should be passionate about the field of robotics and have experience
relevant to this field, such as: modelling and planning for manipulation
and whole-body motion, real-time motion control with online optimisation
methods (e.g. QP, MPC, RL), perception for robotics (e.g. semantic
segmentation, scene understanding), state estimation, etc. The work that we
do presents interesting and unique engineering challenges and as a member
of the Research Engineering team, you’ll contribute towards enhancing the
performance of our research infrastructure and learning algorithms.

 Dear Robotics World Wide Community,

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is looking for several new software engineers to work on Autonomous Underwater Vehicles.
*****************
Tired of sitting at your desk and testing your code in simulation? Looking for a job where the “field” in field robotics truly deserves to be the first word in the phrase? Looking for a place where research and technology directly intersect operations and where you can make a difference in the way we understand the planet we live on while pursing your passion for robotics?

Join the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Sentry team. www.whoi.edu/main/sentry. Sentry is an operationally deployed AUV that spends 100 - 200 days per year at sea gathering data for ocean scientists and testing new technology. Sentry is under continuous upgrade including pushing the boundaries of AUV sampling, new command
and control systems, and new sensing systems. Members of the Sentry team all serve a dual role both as technology developers/engineers, but also as vehicle operators engaged in missions of scientific and societal importance. Recent missions have included oil spill response, locating black boxes, studying sub-sea volcanoes, and looking for mantle rocks to name just a few. In between deployments, you will be working in the Deep Submergence Lab at Woods Hole developing new control code, communications code, GUIS, data processing pipelines and other software for AUV operations. Past project sponsors include NSF, NOAA, Office of Naval Research, DARPA, NASA, foreign governments, philanthropic organizations, and corporations.

Software engineers within the group are expected to routinely deploy with the systems that they work on. This entails both testing deployments where new technology is refined and validated, but also operational deployments where the systems developed are utilized in direct support of a science mission. These deployments are worldwide, typically offshore and typically range between 7 and 60 days. Candidates are expected to be willing to deploy for up to 120 days per year especially early in their tenure at WHOI. Candidates must be comfortable balancing multiple projects and priorities with limited supervision.

ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS:

Specific tasks include but are certainly not limited to:

Join the AUV Sentry team to develop software related to vehicle control, operations and data processing. This may include participation in at sea activities up to 120 day per year.

Develop soft real time control code, communications code, GUIs and other code for AUV operations.
Develop data post processing tools.
Develop software relevant to a variety of other funded research projects.
Support field operations and testing.

Engineer II level*

Require either a MS in an engineering discipline or computer science or a BS degree and several years of relevant work experience.

Research Engineer level*

Must have either a PhD or a lesser degree and substantial relevant work experience.

*Position level will be determined by the selected candidate’s level of education & experience.

Prior experience:

Prior experience with C++ is highly desired. Baring experience with C++, candidates will need to demonstrate extensive experience with another object oriented language including inheritance.
Prior experience with ROS is highly desired.
Prior experience in medium to large scale projects consisting of tens to hundreds of thousands of lines of code and 5-10+ developers is highly desired.
Electrical/Electronic debug skills are highly desired.
Prior experience with integration of COTS peripherals into code is highly desired.
Prior experience with Linux in desktop, embedded and/or server applications is highly desired.
Prior experience with revision control systems is highly desired.
