JHU Post Doctoral Position in Underwater Robotics

The Johns Hopkins University Laboratory for Computational Sensing and 
Robotics and Department of Mechanical Engineering is seeing to fill an 
immediate post doctoral or research scientist position in underwater 
robotics in a DOD sponsored project involving deep submergence robotic 
underwater vehicle research and operations.  My research group focuses 
on the dynamics, navigation, and control of robotic systems, with a 
particular emphasis on underwater robotic vehicles for oceanographic 
research.  I'm seeking a highly qualified post-doctoral candidate with 
experience in the theory and/or practice of underwater vehicle 
engineering, and an interest in the development, study, and evaluation 
of novel technologies for deep submergence robotic vehicles.   The 
position is available beginning July 2010, with a one-year initial 
appointment.  The project will involve research and deep submergence 
operations in collaboration with researchers at JHU and the Woods Hole 
Oceanographic Institution.  U.S. citizenship is required.

   If you are interested, please send the following to Louis L.
