Research Engineer

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

University of Lisbon, Portugal | Research Engineer grant at ISR/IST - H2020 project SciRoc / European Robotics League

Add on 7 January, 2019

Applications are invited for one Research Engineer grant at the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR), Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), University of Lisbon, Portugal. The selected candidates will work on the H2020 project SciRoc (, about scientific competitions concerning the Smart Cities general theme, and in particular in technical aspects linked to the European Robotics League (ERL - Consumer Service Robots Challenge (

This Research Engineer position targets candidates holding a Bachelor or Master degree (or equivalent). The selected candidates is expected to work on software development to automate benchmarking of robot tasks during ERL tournaments, and to assist in the technical aspects of organizing ERL tournaments along each Season. The latter will include traveling to some of the current network of ERL Consumer test beds, spread around Europe (, enabling contacting with leading Labs in European Robotics research.

The grant will be supervised by Prof. Pedro U. Lima and Dr. Meysam Basiri at IST and ISR.

The research will be conducted at the Intelligent Robots and Systems group ( the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR/IST). ISR/IST is the home to more than 40 PhDs and part of the LARSyS (Laboratory for Robotics and Engineering Systems - ISR/IST is engaged in a new generation of research challenges pushing the frontiers of knowledge, while offering world-class doctoral training with top universities (e.g. dual/joint degrees with MIT, EPFL, CMU) and fueling the collaboration with industry. ISR/IST develops state-of- the-art engineering solutions and projects with a clear societal impact, and has a long track record of participation in EU and other international projects. (

Requirements: the candidates are expected to have a BSc or MSc (with different stipend levels) or equivalent degree with background in information/computer engineering, preferably including basic concepts of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. Good programming skills in Python and/or C++, and experience with ROS, are also expected. The working language is English, so good written and oral communication skills are also required.


Deadline: 18-Jan-2019

Starting date: March 2019

Place: ISR/IST - IST Alameda campus, Lisbon, Portugal

 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. 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.


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.

Apply at here
