[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Research Assistant/Associate in real-time Reinforcement Learning or Vision-based Optimal Control for UAVs

lu peng

Dear manager of the robotics letter,


I am currently an assistant professor in Hong Kong PolyU and was a postdoc in ETH Zurich.

I would like to post the following position to the robotics worldwide digest:

Thanks a lot for your help. I really appreciate it.


Best,


Peng


The opening is:

Research Assistant/Associate in real-time Reinforcement Learning or Vision-based Optimal Control for UAVs


The aim of this research is to combine state-of-the-art computer vision and optimal control to enable the autonomy of UAVs. Topics include online trajectory planning, obstacle avoidance and optimal control. We offer a very competitive salary as well as social benefits. You can access to all our facilities including a Vicon motion capture system, UAVs and wind tunnel.



Applicants should have background in computer vision or reinforcement learning (or optimal control) with C/C++ programming skills. Experience with UAV (or Robotics) and Pixhawk is a plus.

For research assistant, the applicants should have or be close to completing a Master’s degree and for research associate, the applicants should have or be close to completing a doctoral degree.



Please send you your CV and academic transcripts to Dr Lu ([hidden email]<mailto:[hidden email]>), quoting [Research Assistant (or Associate) Application]+[your name] in the email subject. Review process will start once applications are received.
