Postdoctoral Fellowship Position Announcement
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.

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 researchers.
