Graduate Research opportunities

One Ph.D. position is available through the Joint Doctorate Program (JDP) of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department at UC San Diego and San Diego State University for Fall 2023.

The group is seeking highly motived graduate students (Ph.D. and MS thesis) for research positions at San Diego State University (SDSU) in the Aerospace Engineering Department, in the area of control, optimization and machine learning with emphasis on autonomous systems. The research area includes computational optimal control, stochastic optimization, machine learning, distributed control with applications on UAS traffic management (UTM) and autonomous vehicles.

The ideal candidate should have excellent mathematical background and strong programming skills (Python, C, Julia or Matlab). Candidates with good knowledge of dynamics and control, optimization, machine learning/reinforcement learning, modeling and simulation, and UAVs are highly desired. Postdocs and visiting students/scholars are also welcome.

If interested, please feel free to email Prof. Jun Chen at jun.chen [@] sdsu [DOT] edu with an updated CV.
