The University of Sydney is Australia's first university and has an outstanding global reputation for academic and research excellence. It employs over 7600 permanent staff, supporting over 60,000 students.

The Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) is based in the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering at The University of Sydney, and is dedicated to the research, development, application and dissemination of autonomous and intelligent robots and systems for operation in outdoor environments.

The group has substantial experimental facilities including three laboratories and a field test site, a range of experimental and production vehicles, industry-quality mechanical and electrical design and fabrication facilities, and employs the latest in embedded computing, sensing and control technologies.

The ACFR is looking to grow its research capabilities in the area of motion planning and scheduling for intelligent and autonomous aerospace systems, with a focus on planning and/or scheduling for multi-vehicle systems, and its practical application in air traffic flow management. We are currently seeking a self-motivated and well-qualified researcher to conduct theoretical and applied research in this area.

This position will provide an exceptional opportunity to work closely with academia and industry at the intersection of fundamental research into optimisation and air traffic flow planning and management.

The successful person will have:

*         A PhD in an engineering, computer science, applied mathematics or a related discipline.

*         Good communication skills and be a team player.

*         Expert knowledge of state-of-the art motion planning or scheduling algorithms.

*         Expert knowledge in one or more of the following fields: numerical optimisation, graph search algorithms, aircraft performance and/or multi-robot motion planning.

*         Sound knowledge of algorithm complexity, scaling and performance.

*         Experience in software development in one or more of the following languages: C++, Python and/or Bash.
