I would like to recommend that job postings here include a "relevant experience" option. There are many people (such as myself with 12 years professional robotics research experience), who are qualified/over-qualified for this position, yet do not have MS or PhD.  By stating a minimum of an MS, these applicants may not apply or be dismissed too early in the hiring process. Stating "MS or X years of robotics experience" should address this limitation.

Thank you,
Bob Dean
