The Robotics Research group (webuser.unicas.it/lai/robotica) of the 
Department of Electrical and Information Engineering of the University 
of Cassino and Southern Lazio (Cassino, Italy) is seeking applicants for 
1 post-doc position in the field of "Cooperative navigation and control 
of teams of autonomous underwater vehicles"

The research activity will be performed in the framework of the H2020 
European research project WiMUST. The project is aimed at developing 
advanced cooperative and networked control/navigation systems to enable 
a large number of marine robots (both on the surface and submerged) to 
interact by sharing information as a coordinated team. The WiMUST system 
may be envisioned as an adaptive variable geometry acoustic array with 
the aim of expanding and improving the functionalities of current 
cooperative marine robotic systems for geophysical and geotechnical 
Further details on the project can be found at: http://www.wimust.eu/
The Robotics Research group of Cassino is involved in the WiMUST project 
as a member of the Interuniversity Center of Integrated Systems for the 
Marine Environment, ISME (http://www.isme.unige.it/).
The responsible of the activities of the group of Cassino in the WiMUST 
project is Prof. Gianluca Antonelli 

Profile of the ideal candidate
Technical skills/background:
