The Johns Hopkins University Dynamical Systems and Control Laboratory 
(DSCL, http://dscl.lcsr.jhu.edu) and Department of Mechanical 
Engineering is seeing a post doctoral or research scientist position 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. The post-doctoral researcher will have the 
opportunity to lead novel directions of research, interact with robotics 
faculty and students at JHU Laboratory for Computational Sensing and 
Robotics (LCSR, http://lcsr.jhu.edu) and have access to state-of-the-art 
research facilities.

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). The position is available 
immediately and applications will be considered until it is 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.
