Postdoc position available in multi-target tracking for
animal behavior modeling at Georgia Tech

The Multi-Agent Systems Understanding Lab, part of the School of Interactive 
Computing at Georgia Tech (http://ic.gatech.edu/) is seeking a highly qualified 
postdoctoral researcher in the areas of multi-target tracking and multi-agent 
system behavior modeling.  The work will focus on multi-modal sensor-based 
tracking of multiple targets.  Sensors include video, lidar, and other passive 
and active techniques.  It is expected that this opportunity is relevant to 
robotics researchers with experience in multi-robot localization and tracking, 
and that the results of the research will be utilized in robot applications.

For some examples of our work, see http://www.kinetrack.org/recent-results.html 
.  This work will involve algorithm development, software development and 
deployment, and system evaluation with animal subjects.  The experience will 
include working with undergraduate, MS and PhD students, and with 
interdisciplinary faculty collaborators.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Robotics, Computer Vision, 
or a field clearly related to the research areas above.

Qualified applicants should provide the following materials:
1) Cover letter briefly describing your background (including information about 
PhD institution, dissertation, and abstract) and career plans;
2) Date of availability to start the postdoc;
3) CV;
4) Names and contact information for at least three references including the PhD 
5) Link to a research web site.

These documents should be submitted as a single PDF to Prof. Tucker Balch at: 
tucker at cc.gatech.edu with the email subject line: "postdoc candidate"

The position is open immediately (7/1/10) and is guaranteed for a year from the 
start date, with a possible second year extension.
