vehicles and/or unmanned aerial vehicles. Algorithm design and
theoretical analysis applied to robotic systems operating in harsh,
unstructured environments.

-Reinforcement learning, evolutionary algorithms, and multiagent
systems. Applying machine learning algorithms to real world problems,
including sensor coordination, UAV coordination, multi-robot
coordination, and advanced power plant control.

The successful candidate will take a leadership role in coordinating
collaborations across the robotics group at Oregon State University
(http://robotics.oregonstate.edu/), the College of Earth, Ocean, and
Atmospheric Sciences (http://ceoas.oregonstate.edu/), and with
external collaborators in academia, government, and industry. The
robotics group at Oregon State University is growing rapidly, now with
more than 15 affiliated faculty, and we are looking for motivated,
talented individuals to join our team.
