Research Internship in Autonomous Vehicle

Location: Montbéliard
Salary: 546 euros per month
Closing Date: 15 February 2018
Reference: EPAN201801

A Research Internship is available at the EPAN Research Group at UTBM in France. The internship is fully funded for 6 months. The successful candidate will participate to "MobiliTech" project for autonomous vehicle development. The internship will focus on the promising research topic of moving-object-aware (including pedestrians, cyclists, cars, etc.) autonomous vehicle navigation in urban environments. An autonomous vehicle should be able to dynamically (re-)plan its driving path in order to adapt it to the movement of other objects. In addition, implementation of the ROS navigation stack on our self-driving car is also expected. In particular, we want to migrate and customize the original version of ROS navigation stack in order to adapt it to our vehicle. We are looking to recruit a Master student with relevant experience and/or a strong interest in research areas including (but not limited to):

  • Robot navigation
  • Systems integration, including ROS

You should follow Master degree in Computer Science, Electronic Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or other related fields. You must have good mathematical and coding skills (C++/Python, ROS), and be available to start work on March 1, 2018. The internship offers the opportunity to engage in international collaboration within an ambitious team, to work with state-of-the-art robotic hardware and software, and to benefit from excellent support to produce and disseminate original research contributions in the leading international conferences and journals. You must be able to work collaboratively as part of a team, including excellent written and spoken communication skills.

To apply for the position, please contact Prof. Yassine Ruichek (yassine.ruichek[AT]utbm.fr) and Dr. Zhi Yan (zhi.yan[AT]utbm.fr), with your CV and transcript.
