Applications are invited for two post-doctoral positions from highly 
motivated individuals interested in working in the area of multi-agent and 
multi-robot systems. These positions are related to federally-funded 
projects being done in the C-MANTIC (Collaborative Multi-AgeNt/Multi-robot 
Technologies and Intelligent Coordination) Lab http://cmantic.unomaha.edu. 
The lab is located in the computer science department at the University of 
Nebraska at Omaha and houses state-of-the-art equipment including several 
Corobot, Explorer and e-puck robots, and Webots robot simulator licenses. 
The positions will be effective immediately and will be available through 
August 2012 with a possibility of a 1-year extension.  Each position 
includes a monthly stipend and benefits. Selected individuals will be 
expected to develop independent research ideas and lead research on using 
multi-agent coordination techniques for multi-robot systems for performing 
autonomous exploration and foraging tasks in USAR-like scenarios. 
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in computer science or a closely related 
discipline with an emphasis in intelligent systems, artificial 
intelligence or robotics. A background in one or more of the following 
areas - multi-agent systems, game theory, SLAM, and/or robotics path 
planning, is highly desirable.
