[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PostDoc position at the University College Dublin

Giovanni Russo
One year PostDoc position is available at the Systems and Control Group
within the School of Electric and Electronic Engineering of the University
College Dublin. The PostDoc will work under the supervision of Dr. Giovanni
Russo and will be jointly supervised by Prof. Robert Shorten.

The group performs fundamental and applied research in the area at the
intersection of networks, control, decision science and cyber-physical
systems. Our fundamental research is typically applied on a number of
real-world applications, including manufacturing, smart cities and
connected/autonomous vehicles. In order to do so, the lab features a number
of testing facilities. This includes a large scale hardware-in-the-loop
testing system for connected vehicles and an augmented reality environment
for manufacturing applications.

For this position, we are seeking candidates for our work within the I-Form
Centre for Advanced Manufacturing (

Within the project, we
will develop a cyber-physical system allowing humans to collaborate with
augmented reality avatars and with robots in order to fulfill a complex
manufacturing task. The research will have both a theoretical and an
applied, hands-on, aspect, benefitting from the experimental test-bed
currently available at UCD.

The ideal candidate should have a background in:

   1. nonlinear dynamics and complex systems;
   2. deep and reinforcement learning;
   3. optimization;
   4. statistics.

To apply:
send, to [hidden email]: (i) a cover letter stating your interest
in the position; (ii) the names of three referees; (iii) your CV. The
deadline for the applications is October, 15th, 2018.

Pre-applications and informal inquiries can be made to Dr Giovanni Russo.
