Open Position: Postdoctoral Associate
Location: MIT Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) (http://lids.mit.edu)
Term: 2013, with extension possible

Qualifications: Ph.D. in a field related to autonomy, planning, and optimization, and a strong background in large-scale sequential decision-making in stochastic domains. Experience in the area of human preference/demonstration learning would be preferred.

The goal of the project is to develop a decision support system for real-life aircraft carrier operations. Previous collaborative work developed an interactive computer simulation of the operations on an aircraft carrier deck. Future research will focus on developing a planning system which must operate in a complex large-scale, multi-agent, dynamic and uncertain environment, while also incorporating human operator feedback in the form of preference and/or demonstration learning.

Please send a PDF of your CV, any relevant paper links, and at least 3 references 
to acl-applicants at mit.edu

CLOSING DATE: 20 December 2012 (noon MIT time)
