We expect to fund up to two PhD students in computer science and
engineering working with small unmanned aerial systems, focusing on
human-robot interaction and shared intelligence. The projects work directly
with disaster responders and civil engineers, leveraging our previous work
in creating predictive organizational models (used successfully at
Fukushima), increasing performance, and creating a visual common ground via
iPads that allow responders from all over the world to interact with these
robots in real-time.

The ideal student will be proficient in coding and have taken courses in
artificial intelligence and human-computer interfaces, enjoys working with
real robots and users, and has strong references.

The positions are available starting in January.

how to apply and http://faculty.cse.tamu.edu/murphy/grads.html for
information on working for me.

Texas A&M is a top 10 engineering college with 14 roboticists working in
four departments. The Computer Science and Engineering department have many
outstanding faculty, including Bjarne Stroustrup.
