Cobotics has emerged in recent years as an alternative to full automation. The field of scientific research, particularly in chemistry, is showing a growing interest in this type of technology.
The subject of the young researcher on this new and innovative approach is relevant to work in constrained areas such as glove boxes.
The objective is to develop a robotic solution integrated into the glove box capable of following the researcher's work step by step by offering assistance available at the user's request.


- definition of a representative model of a glove box environment to understand the issues related to the ergonomics of the constrained space
- definition of the task typology in order to structure the handling aid provided by the robot The robot's perception of the operator's activity must allow the operator to be always available and close by. The robot's control law must allow the robot's functionality to alternate between task automation and handling assistance.


We are looking for a candidate with a strong background in robotics with a strong focus on control and collaborative robotics, especially from the point of view of command/perception coupling.

He/she should have a PhD in robotics with practical experience in system integration both in terms of general architecture and mechanical, mechatronic and software design. From the software point of view, previous experience in robot programming, in C++ and Python and ROS languages will be decisive.

General skills: ability to work independently as well as in a team, proactivity, creativity, enthusiasm, seriousness and rigour.

Work Context

The "laboratory of the future" LOF, is a joint research unit affiliated to the CNRS, the University of Bordeaux and Solvay (a chemical industry company dedicated to the development of advanced materials and specialty chemicals).
LOF's vocation is to increase the productivity of R&D projects through the implementation of high throughput methodologies such as microfluidics or robotics. Located in Pessac, the laboratory is part of a Solvay research and innovation centre and brings together a team of around 20 researchers from both academia and industry. The studies carried out by the LOF candidate will be followed up in a way that brought together by Solvay's application teams. The candidate must demonstrate motivation and be able to deliver within the given deadlines.
As the project is in partnership with INRIA, the candidate will share his or her working time between LOF and INRIA's Bordeaux "Sud-Ouest" Research Centre.
