The School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITEE) at the University of Queensland (UQ) is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow to work on autonomous decision making in the presence of uncertainty, in particular Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes (POMDPs). The person will be working on algorithm design, development, and novel applications of robot planning & decision making algorithms (in particular POMDP-based planning) to problems beyond robotics. 

The project is a collaboration between the School of ITEE at UQ, DATA61 at CSIRO, and DSTG (Australia Defense Science and Technology Group). This collaboration will allow the research fellow to have ample opportunities to build their network with Australian academic and research communities.  

UQ is a Go8 (research intensive) university. It is an exciting time to get involved with UQ's School of ITEE.  The School is ramping up its investment in research, and places automation (including autonomous operation) as one of its four focus areas. We offer competitive remuneration, ranging from A$95,407 - A$111,848 (including 17% superannuation), depending on qualifications and experience. Funding for this position is available for up to 4 years.
