[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Multiple PhD openings in robotics and control at George Washington University, Washington DC

Taeyoung Lee
Flight dynamics and control lab (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__fdcl.seas.gwu.edu&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=IW2Nep5DOa_25XFJVOKDCRdK6RYwWVsJbtd1nOL-jcU&s=BWr3gxQfMmX-LiHQ3TERkrQuTB9p0ZCLdJ4P0Ji6Amo&e=) of the George Washington University at Washington DC is looking for new doctoral students. There are three open positions for the following projects.

1. Aerial Mapping and Situation Awareness

This project aims to develop aerial robotic systems to monitor a complex urban environments, create a real time map, and share it with other autonomous vehicles. Backgrounds in the following topics are desired.

a. SLAM
b. ROS
c. Machine learning
d. Image processing

This position will be funded by NSF.

2. Dynamics and Control of Flapping Wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

This project aims to uncover the biomechanics of Monarch butterflies exhibiting the longest flight range among insects, and to utilize it to develop bio-inspired control schemes for long-range flapping-wing micro aerial vehicles. Backgrounds in the following topics are desired.

a. Nonlinear dynamics
b. Nonlinear control theory
c. Aerodynamics
d. Geometric mechanics

This position will be funded by NSF.

3. Uncertainty Propagation for Hybrid Systems

This project is to construct comprehensive computational techniques for stochastic analysis of hybrid systems evolving on a nonlinear configuration manifold, including uncertainty propagation, Bayesian estimation, and stochastic optimal control schemes.

In particular, backgrounds in the following topics are desired.

a. Stochastic analysis
b. Hybrid systems
c. Estimation
d. Geometric mechanics

This position will be funded by AFOSR.

For every position, it is expected that the candidates have expertise in structured programming.

To apply, or to request more information, please contact Prof. Taeyoung Lee at [hidden email]. The application should include CV, a list of publications, and a list of reference, and it should be submitted as a single PDF file.
