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.
