The Harvard RoboBees project (http://robobees.seas.harvard.edu) is  
funded through an NSF Expeditions in Computing grant and is developing  
an colony of robotic bees for various applications. This project  
involves a wide range of research themes in micro-scale robotics,  
multi-agent systems, embedded computing, and novel programming models.  
The RoboBees project has openings for postdoctoral researchers with  
expertise in the following areas:
- Multi-robot estimation
- Swarm robotics
- Mobile sensor networks

The ideal candidate would have prior experience in one or more of the
following areas:
- Embedded hardware/software design
- Working with sensors and sensing/control algorithms on small aerial  

To apply, please send your CV, a research statement and the names of  
two references to Karthik Dantu (kar at eecs.harvard.edu) with the  
subject line"RoboBees postdoc application". Before applying for this  
position, please read over the synopsis of the RoboBees project on our  
website (http://robobees.seas.harvard.edu), and indicate in your  
application how your research interests overlap with the specific  
themes above. The successful candidate will work with the colony team  
in the RoboBees
project with Prof. Radhika Nagpal and Prof. Greg Morrisett. The  
application deadline is June 15, 2011. We hope to make decisions soon  
thereafter and have the postdoc start in Fall 2011.
