The Intelligent Autonomous Systems Lab (http://ualr.edu/cxye/laboratory.htm)
of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock has two Ph.D. student openings
in robotics for Spring/Fall 2011. The successful candidates will be involved
in a research project funded by the National Science Foundation to devise
computer vision methods and build portable robotic devices to guide the
visually impaired in unstructured environments. The research efforts include
real-time processing of a 3D imaging sensor's data for pose estimation,
range data registration and range data understanding, building portable
blind navigational device (PBND) prototypes, and validating the computer
vision methods in the PBND settings. More detailed information about the
project can be found at
http://nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward.do?AwardNumber=1017672. 
General guideline of admission to graduate study is referred to the Graduate
Student Handbook
(http://ualr.edu/appliedscience/files/2010/08/Graduate_Student_Handbook.pdf)
. The University of Arkansas at Little Rock is a dynamic metropolitan
university locating at the state's capital city, Little Rock
(http://www.littlerock.com). Applicants should hold a degree in electrical
engineering, computer science, or related fields. Desired skills include
programming in C/C++ and Matlab, image processing, 3D computer vision,
and/or control. To apply, contact Dr. Cang Ye (cxye at ualr.edu) with detailed
CV and copies of transcript(s), TOEFL and GRE.
