Opportunities

Post-Doc Positions

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position in the general area of Machine Learning. Specific areas of research include: (1) approximate reasoning in particular Fuzzy Type-2 and handling of uncertainty; (2) data representation, data management and learning. This is a non-tenure-track, year-to-year appointment, renewable annually for up to four years subjected to satisfactory performance, availability of resources, and the needs of the Center. The research results of this project are expected to reach a high Technology Readiness Level (TRL) to be applied to testing and evaluation of autonomous vehicles. We thus look for applicants that have a demonstrated track record in the applications of Machine Learning techniques to systems and control problems. Programming skills and practical experiences with embedded real-time systems is a plus. U.S. citizenship is preferred and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. If interested, please apply electronically by sending detailed curriculum vitae copies of your top three publications, the summary of your PhD thesis, names and addresses of three reference persons, and other information that might be relevant to your application to akarimod at ncat dot edu.

Graduate Students

Three PhD positions are available in the area of Control and Robotics in Autonomous Cooperative Control of Emergent Systems of System (ACCESS) Laboratory, North Carolina A&T State University. The project will involve highly cross-disciplinary research in different aspects of autonomous systems. The research topics will include but not limited to Modelling and analysis of multi-agent systems; Teaming and cooperative control of multi-agent systems; Testing, evaluation, and verification of multi-agent systems; Motion planning and coordination of multi-agent systems.

In coordination with Army Research Office, the ACCESS Lab participates in the Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program (URAP) as an Army education outreach program. Through this program, undergraduate students will join the ACCESS Lab and will research cooperative control structures to manage the teaming of autonomous vehicles and enhance their capabilities. Applicants must have two letters of recommendation, a minimum 3.0 GPA, be enrolled in an Electrical or Computer Engineering major, possess a good programming background, and have a good attitude and strong work ethic. Experience in hardware and software components, sensors, actuators, and embedded systems is a plus. Interested students are invited to submit their applications through the UARP program choosing the program code BNCA54. For further information, you could contact Dr. Karimoddini at akarimod at ncat dot edu.
