Applications are invited for one post-doctoral researcher position in the area of robot navigation and path planning. Familiarity with ROS platform and background in artificial intelligence and computer science is preferred. The position is available starting immediately for a period of 1.5 years. The position is related to federally-funded projects being done in the C-MANTIC (Collaborative Multi-AgeNt/Multi-robot Technologies and Intelligent Coordination) Lab http://cmantic.unomaha.edu in the computer science department at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The CMANTIC group currently has 12 members including 3 post-doctoral researchers and several graduate students, and focusses on research in multi-robot systems. The lab houses state-of-the-art equipment including several Corobot, Turtlebot, Explorer and e-puck robots, and Webots robot simulator licenses. The selected individual will be expected to develop independent research ideas and actively assist in pursuing externally-funded grants, develop software robot simulators and on physical robots, work with other project members in ongoing projects on multi-robot systems, supervise graduate students and perform K-12 outreach activities. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in computer science or a closely related discipline with an emphasis in artificial intelligence or robotics. A background in one or more of the following areas - SLAM, robot navigation, robotic path planning, and/or decision theoretic planning in multi-agent systems is highly desirable. Interested applicants should send an application including a cover letter, recent resume, brief research statement and a list of three references by email to Dr. Raj Dasgupta (pdasgupta at unomaha.edu), Director, C-MANTIC Lab.
