[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Postdoc in Control, Estimation and Optimization for Safe (Semi-)Autonomous Driving

Sze Zheng Yong

A postdoctoral position is available at Arizona State University in the general area of Control, Estimation and Optimization for Safe (Semi-)Autonomous Driving as part of a collaborative research project between Prof. Sze Zheng Yong at Arizona State University, Toyota Research Institute and two professors at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The postdoctoral researcher will contribute to the development of novel algorithms for model-based intention estimation to increase vehicle safety margins via the identification of the other drivers’ level of cooperativeness or intent. (see description of some preliminary work on model discrimination and hidden mode estimation at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__szyong.engineering.asu.edu_research_&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=k6jPdpD7I-G55oasfW1SErx_JoRD7W_TMfLgzqlqjNY&s=ILn9LxS6DDZWivWnUv_8asBvFEDm_O9wnS1Jg-FXzd0&e= <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__szyong.engineering.asu.edu_research_&d=DwMGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=-oG5Vz1b8zN-gjFdTLQ8DgAW9O3KfMKzGYOB5J4_I4w&s=uIIKZ8rEJsZ022r3dK6bRp7EUCMb8OWxCh-qjO3JIAE&e=>)
The applicant is expected to have experience in the research areas of control and estimation of dynamical systems, and optimization (linear, convex and nonlinear). In addition, the applicant should have a good publication track record in international conferences and journals as well as excellent written and spoken English skills. A working knowledge of hybrid systems, robotics and/or formal methods will be a plus.
A Ph.D. in mechanical, electrical or aerospace engineering, computer science or related disciplines is required. The initial term of appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance and funding. Potential start date: July 1, 2017 or later for PhD candidates who are defending soon. Competitive salary is offered.
Review of applications will begin immediately, and applicants are encouraged to apply by May 15, 2017. The position will remain open until filled.
To apply, please send your CV and names and contact information of three references to:
