Eligible candidate may Apply as soon as possible.
(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow
Background and experience in neural networks (NN), reinforcement learning (RL), simulation and programming in Robot Operating Systems (ROS), and knowledge of marine systems are strong assets. The candidate will conduct research on an unmanned surface vehicle (USV), specifically on the guidance, navigation and control unit with path planning, fault detection, and intelligent control modules. The research on the intelligent control methods includes NN and RL based method as well as comparisons with model-based control. The research will develop and build upon tools from Gazebo simulation in ROS for the simulation environment. The research will involve extensive experimental studies on the USV prototype and docking station available in the industry partner’s location. In-water trials and implementations of the overall USV and docking system under different weather conditions will be carried out to improve the stability, robustness, and reliability of the developed unit.
Deadline : 05/20/2022
(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow: Ocean, Economy, Livelihoods
This is a one-year post-doctoral opportunity to support Dr. Sherry Pictou, supervisor, in a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair research program in Indigenous Governance with a focus on gender roles in Indigenous Ocean/water governance, supported by the Ocean, Economy and Livelihood projects in the Nippon Foundation Ocean Nexus Program. The aim of this position is making a significant contribution to Indigenous Ocean/Water Governance (aquatic and marine). This will be achieved by applying an Indigenous gender lens in ocean and water governance. The focus will include Mi’kmaw/Indigenous ocean/water governance from ancestral to current times. This fellowship provides the opportunity to work on the links between Indigenous knowledge and rights, environmental social science and policy, applying academic research and theory to support Indigenous communities, and Indigenous women and gender diverse persons in particular, both in Canada and globally. In addition, the research fellow will assist in engaging national and global policy makers to ensure Indigenous local socioeconomic contexts are reflected in Ocean/water governance.
Deadline : 05/10/2022
(03) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow
The candidate will conduct research on the intelligent control of cooperative robotic manipulations to accomplish dexterous tasks in a complex environment, such as applications in screwing, opening/closing a bottle cap, removing hazardous materials, surgery, and assembly tasks. one potential application is for smart factories where a team of robots is able to assist in manufacturing workshop for material handling, and dexterous tasks on the production automation assembly line etc. The research will investigate effective solutions for co-manipulations, human-like dexterous co-manipulation skills and machine learning strategies for tasks in a dynamic environment. It will involve extensive experimental studies on the state-of-the-art two Franka Emika robotic manipulators (7 DOFs), one Kuka manipulator (6 DOFs), one Stewart Platform, one PenduBot, one inverted pendulum cart system, and two Phantom Omni haptic devices (3 DOFs) available in the host labs at Dal and UNB.
Deadline : Open until Filled

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate
Reporting to the Principal Investigator, the Research Associate will work on a project entitled “Dependent type theory for verified quantum software” and related projects. The Research Associate will participate in the design of a type-safe functional quantum programming language and will be involved in the design, semantics, and meta-theory of a functional programming language for quantum computing and using the language to investigate questions in quantum information theory.
Deadline : 04/30/2022
About Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia, Canada- Official Website
Dalhousie University is a public research university in Nova Scotia, Canada, with three campuses in Halifax, a fourth in Bible Hill, and medical teaching facilities in Saint John, New Brunswick. Dalhousie offers more than 4,000 courses, and 180 degree programs in twelve undergraduate, graduate, and professional faculties. The university is a member of the U15, a group of research-intensive universities in Canada.
Dalhousie was established as a nonsectarian college in 1818 by the eponymous Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia, George Ramsay, 9th Earl of Dalhousie. The college did not hold its first class until 1838, until then operating sporadically due to financial difficulties. It reopened for a third time in 1863 following a reorganization that brought a change of name to “The Governors of Dalhousie College and University”. The university formally changed its name to “Dalhousie University” in 1997 through the same provincial legislation that merged the institution with the Technical University of Nova Scotia.
There are currently two student unions that represent student interests at the university: the Dalhousie Student Union and the Dalhousie Association for Graduate Students. Dalhousie’s varsity teams, the Tigers, compete in the Atlantic University Sport conference of Canadian Interuniversity Sport. Dalhousie’s Faculty of Agriculture varsity teams are called the Dalhousie Rams, and compete in the ACAA and CCAA. Dalhousie is a coeducational university with more than 18,000 students and 130,000 alumni around the world. The university’s notable alumni include a Nobel Prize winner, 91 Rhodes Scholars, and a range of senior government officials, academics, and business leaders.
