Description: HRL Laboratories (http://www.hrl.com/laboratories/labs_issl.html, formerly
known as Hughes Research Labs) is looking for a full-time research staff
in Autonomous Unmanned Systems (esp. in UAV systems).
STATUS: * US CITIZEN or US PERMANENT RESIDENT *
THIS IS A STRICT REQUIREMENT.
EDUCATION DESIRED: Ph.D. in Robotics, Computer Science, Electrical
Engineering, Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering, Applied Math or related
ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS: Primary job function is to design, develop and

(SLAM), computer vision, machine learning. Experience in "hands-on"
implementation and porting of algorithms to low-power mobile hardware
platforms and systems (e.g., fixed-wing UAV, quadrotor UAV). Experience in
developing innovative solutions based upon the application of relevant
research results from a wide variety of sources.
KNOWLEDGE DESIRED: Background in one or more of the following areas:
modern control theory, computer vision, signal processing, neuromorphic
systems, machine learning, programming skills, particularly proficient
with C/C++ and Matlab. Experience with hardware language programming,
standard open-source robotic software, e.g., ROS, OpenCV, PCL, and SLAM
packages a plus.
