ROBOTIC VISION SCIENTIST (POSITION NUMBER 328)

 THE OPPORTUNITY
 Founded in 1994, Braintech, Inc. is a rapidly growing company
 specializing in the design and development of machine vision products
 for the industrial, consumer and government/defense robotic markets.
 Braintech pioneered 3D-Vision Guided Robotics (3D-VGR) for
 manufacturers in early 2000 through landmark installations at Ford
 Motor Co.  Braintech was also first to commercialize the development,
 operation and support of VGR systems with the release of
 eVisionFactory commercial software platform.

 Systems built using Braintech products provide robots with the ability
