Apologies for multiple postings.

The Scalable Autonomous Systems (SAS) Lab at Drexel University, led by
Prof. M. Ani Hsieh, is searching for a postdoc with research background in
underwater robotics, dynamical systems, and/or multi-robot systems.

The project deals with control and coordination of multi-robot systems
operating in geophysical fluid dynamics in both 2D and 3D space over time
(2D+1 and 3D+1).  The objectives of this project include identifying and
leveraging reduced-order descriptions of the fluidic environment to develop
robust control and coordination strategies for mobile sensors in marine,
riverine, and littoral environments.  The SAS Lab maintains active
collaborations with researchers from various academic and government

The position is initially for one year and is available immediately.

- PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science
or a related field
- Strong backgrounds in dynamical systems and control theory
- Strong experience in design, modeling, and realization of robotic systems
with emphasis in control of multi-robot systems
- Good programming skills
- High quality publication record

Candidates with strong backgrounds in computational fluid dynamics,
stochastic systems, physical oceanography, and/or data assimilation are
strongly encouraged to apply.
