The research group of Prof. Emilio Frazzoli at the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control, Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering, ETH Zürich is looking for a
Postdoctoral Scholar in Autonomous Systems
We would like you to contribute to our research in the areas of autonomous systems in general, and self-driving cars in particular. The position is not tied to a specific predetermined project. Some of the areas in which we are interested are: safety-critical decision-making in uncertain environments, application of formal methods to messy systems, task-oriented joint perception and control, sensing-actuation-computation-behavior co-design, planning across abstraction levels (from measurements to logic constraints), autonomy architectures using mixed-semantics models (e.g. probabilistic + possibilistic), behavior shaping, learning to predict, imitate, and explain human and machine behavior.
We welcome applicants from any background, including Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence, Logic, and Machine Learning. We value a rigorous background, a fervid imagination and the ability to translate the rigorous and imaginative ideas into working code.
We are offering an interesting position in our group that is proud of its excellence in teaching and outreach, which we see as complementary to our research activity, and we expect you to share this enthusiasm. Depending on your interest, some of the work may be done in collaboration with nuTonomy, using their fleet or their data. At ETH, we plan to have two full-size autonomous cars, a few autonomous go-karts, and about 60 Duckiebots, give or take.
