OCE Postdoctoral Fellowship - Evolutionary Aerial Robotics

An esteemed early career research fellowship

Work in an innovative and dedicated team of researchers
Join CSIRO - Australia's premier science & technology research organisation - and make a difference
CSIRO ICT Centre's Autonomous Systems Lab is offering a prestigious OCE Postdoctoral Fellowship for a talented and dedicated recent (or near) PhD graduate with experience in the fields of Evolutionary Computing and/or Aerial Robotics.

The successful candidate will work on a new project in Evolutionary Aerial Robotics (EAR) with the objective of developing autonomous Unmanned Aircraft Systems(UAS) that create and evolve their own autonomy systems (i.e. the UAS “brain”), and thereby shortcutting and outperforming the expensive and time-consuming classical engineering approach.

This is an interdisciplinary project that is concerned with developing novel autonomy technologies that will allow future Unmanned UAS to exhibit advanced autonomous behaviours using artificial evolution algorithms. This will include research and development of novel or improved evolutionary algorithms for UAS, applying them to a variety of aspects including flight control, bio-inspired navigation, 3D obstacle avoidance, failure detection and autonomy architectures.

Location:  Pullenvale, Brisbane, Australia
Salary:      AUD78K - AUD85K per annum plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Tenure:    3 year Term
Ref. No:    Q13/00156

Applications close 20 February 2013 (at 11:30 pm local (Queensland) time).
