Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering
Postdoctoral Associate: Stochastic Reachability for Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Mexico (UNM) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Associate with an anticipated start date of March 2020.
The postdoctoral associate will work with an interdisciplinary team of researchers in Electrical and Computer Engineering and in Computer Science to develop theory and algorithms to enable autonomy in dynamic and uncertain environments. Specifically, the postdoctoral associate will 1) incorporate stochastic reachable sets into a model predictive control framework, and investigate convergence, convexity, and optimality, 2) develop scalable under-approximations in the case of imperfect measurements, and 3) integrate learning into stochastic reachability-based planning algorithms, to enable navigation in dynamic environments with poorly characterized uncertainty. This is a benefits-eligible, one-year appointment that may be renewed for an additional year contingent upon satisfactory performance and availability of resources. No teaching is expected during the appointment. Salary is dependent upon experience and qualification.
