The JHU Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR,
http://lcsr.jhu.edu) and Department of Mechanical Engineering have two
full-time post-doctoral positions in the area of underwater robotics. The
post-doctoral researchers will have the opportunity to lead novel
directions of research, interact with robotics faculty and students at LCSR
and have access to state-of-the-art research facilities. Applicants can
apply to and be considered for both positions. The positions are available
immediately and applications will be considered until they are filled.  The
University is committed to building a diverse environment; women and
minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. The Johns Hopkins University
is an EEO/AA Employer.

1. Underwater vehicle navigation, dynamics, and control

The Johns Hopkins University Dynamical Systems and Control Laboratory
(DSCL, http://dscl.lcsr.jhu.edu) and Department of Mechanical Engineering
are seeking a post-doctoral or research scientist in underwater robotics in
the area of underwater vehicle navigation, dynamics, and control.  We seek
highly qualified post-doctoral candidates with experience in the theory
and/or practice of underwater vehicle engineering, and an interest in the
development, study, and evaluation of novel technologies for underwater
robotic vehicles, with a particular emphasis on underwater robotic vehicles
for oceanographic research. The project will involve theoretical research
and experiments in the laboratory and at sea.

Applicants should send a cover letter with statement of intent, recent CV
(including a full list of publications, brief summary of qualifications and
experience, PhD institution, thesis advisor name(s), thesis title and date,
and names and contact information of three references), and several
selected publications in a single pdf file to Professor Louis Whitcomb (
llw at jhu.edu).

2. Motion planning for environmental assessment

The Autonomous Systems, Control, and Optimization Laboratory (ASCO,
http://ascol.lcsr.jhu.edu) has one full-time post-doctoral position in
motion planning and control of aquatic robotic vehicles. The primary focus
is on autonomous motion planning with applications in environmental
assessment and situational awareness. Candidates should have a strong
background in robotics, experience with integrating real-time control and
perception systems, and excellent programming skills. The researcher will
lead technical developments, system integration, and field experiments.

Applicants should send a cover letter with statement of intent, recent CV
(including a full list of publications, brief summary of qualifications and
experience, PhD institution, thesis advisor name(s), thesis title and date,
and names and contact information of three references), and several
selected publications in a single pdf file to Professor Marin Kobilarov (
marin at jhu.edu). Candidates who will attend ICRA or RSS this year are
encouraged to contact us to schedule a time during the conference to
discuss this opportunity.
