Postdoctoral/Research Position in Unmanned Systems
at the University of Florida at Gainesville

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for an enthusiastic 
individual to assume a leading role in the Mobile Sensor Networking 
Platforms Laboratory at the University of Florida at Gainesville. Our 
group recently re-located to the University of Florida and we are 
looking for a self-motivated researcher to work in an exciting and 
challenging area of bio-inspired aerial and underwater robots and 
cooperation among them. The project involves various aspects of vehicle 
control, cooperation, sensing, communication and networking. The 
selected candidate will join a team of students and faculty in the 
design, construction, and testing of micro aerial and underwater robots 
and their cooperation. The candidate will be involved in the development 
of control and cooperation algorithms, selection of appropriate sensor 
mechanisms; developing the robot interface to flexibly integrate 
software and hardware controllers; and experimental evaluation of the 
control and cooperation strategies. He/She will also have direct input 
into the development of the control models. Favorable consideration will 
be given to applicants with background in hardware, software, real-time 
or artificial intelligence and good programming skills.  Our group has 
extensive experience in building aerial and underwater robots. The group 
recently moved from Colorado to Florida. For a list of bio-inspired 
aerial and underwater vehicles and their operation see 
http://enstrophy.mae.ufl.edu/~mohseni/Platforms1.html (this link is a 
few years old)

The position is available immediately and will be filled as soon as a 
suitable candidate is identified. The candidate must have a Ph.D. degree 
in mechanical, aerospace, electrical, or computer engineering with 
related research background. Applicants must show a strong interest in 
multidisciplinary research in unmanned vehicles. Candidates should also 
have a high quality research record and research experience. They must 
show independence and resourcefulness, good working habits, and the 
ability to integrate well in a multidisciplinary team. The initial 
appointment is for one year, and the renewal of the appointment in the 
following years is contingent upon excellent performance. A competitive 
salary based on applicant qualifications and experience will be offered. 
Applicants should send a vita, bibliography with relevant reprints, and 
a description of research experience and interests to
