University of South Florida OR Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Date Posted May 27, 2020
Title Ph.D. student
University University of South Florida OR Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Tampa OR Daytona Beach, FL, United States
Department ME (USF) or AE (ERAU)
Application Deadline Open until filled
Position Start Date August 2020
  • Graduate Student
  • Aerospace/Aeronautical/Astronautics

We are searching for three exceptional Ph.D. students with a strong background in control systems to perform high-quality and innovative theoretical and experimental research on resilient autonomous vehicles and cooperative robotics. These students, who will be graduate assistants, are expected to start working at the beginning of August 2020.

Our intention is to give our strong guidance in order to maximize the chances of our students of building a rewarding research career. If you are interested, please send an email to both Tansel Yucelen at (Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of South Florida) and K. Merve Dogan at (soon-to-be Assistant Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University) including:

(1) Your curriculum vitae (applicants with M.S. degree are preferred).

(2) A publication on control systems (applicants with accepted or submitted conference or journal papers are preferred).

(3) A concise paragraph (4-5 sentences maximum) that explains your theoretical and experimental experience on control systems.

(4) A list that shows the undergraduate and M.S. courses the applicant took related to mathematics and control systems.

(5) Three contact information (including name, e-mail, and phone number of the person) for letter of recommendation requests (one of these three contact information must include your current advisor).

Our research is focused on the creation of new information, control, and decision algorithms that reveal advanced systems such as highly capable autonomous vehicles and networked multivehicle systems. These systems are envisioned to elevate our society as well as to perform safety-critical operations with more robots and less humans. We place a strong emphasis both on theoretic research and experimentation for addressing fundamental and open real-world technological problems. Our aim is to be recognized as one of the top research laboratories in the nation by significantly advancing the knowledge, training science-based engineers and professionals, and placing our students in top research places, to shape the future of our society.

All the best,

Tansel Yucelen
K. Merve Dogan
