Postdoctoral Fellowship Position Announcement

Department: University of Florida, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Location:  UF REEF, Shalimar, FL
Salary rate: $65,000 annual
Hours per year:  1.0 FTE

Position Description:

The University of Florida REEF facility is announcing a post-doctoral 
fellowship sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory, Munitions 
Directorate (AFRL/RW) at Eglin AFB, Florida in the area of control and 
estimation. This AFRL/RW sponsored project, “Privileged Sensing 
Framework”, has focused on cooperative control and estimation in 
human-machine systems. This project has investigated novel approaches in 
fusing human perceptions with autonomous sensor measurements to reduce 
estimation error and improve coordination in human-machine teams. 
Desired skills for this postdoc position include prior experience with 
Bayesian estimation, classification, novel representations of knowledge, 
risk-based decision making, control systems, learning in autonomous 
control, and distributed control architectures. While this position is 
focused primarily in the development of original theory, some applied 
demonstrations are encouraged in either simulation or hardware utilizing 
ground robots and quadrotors in a motion capture lab space.

The UF REEF facility is located in Shalimar, FL. It is a collaborative 
space with researchers from UF, AFRL, and other institutions. Research 
projects are in a variety of fields including control and estimation, 
communication, coordination in autonomous vehicles, industrial 
optimization, and materials science. Collaborative work between these 
groups is highly encouraged. There are opportunities for robotic 
experiments utilizing ground robots and quadrotors in a motion capture 
lab space.
Qualifications: Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in a field closely related 
to control and estimation and a track record of conducting and 
publishing quality research at top conferences and in scientific 
journals. This position requires good communication and collaborative 
research skills as this research group is made up of both UF and AFRL
