Careers

The Multi-Agent Autonomy Group at JPL

JPL is working on several projects to demonstrate autonomy capabilities on a multi-agent system (robotic and spacecraft) in support of the future NASA exploration missions. The researcher will work closely with JPL autonomy experts to develop and mature multi-agent autonomy enabling technologies that address the current challenges in deploying such systems for scientific exploration purposes. A successful candidate will work with JPL technologists and scientists to devise novel coordination, estimation, information sharing, and control algorithms that enable a team of agents to collaboratively explore our universe.  Candidates are expected to perform literature review, algorithm development and simulation, analysis of the results, and report results in scientific publications and technical reports.

The Multi-Agent Autonomy Group at JPL is looking for exceptional candidates for both post-doctoral and full-time positions. U.S. person status is not required, although many projects are only accessible to U.S. citizens.

Desired skills include:

  • Hands on field robotics experience
  • Strong C++/Python coding skills
  • Multi-agent architecture and behavior design
  • Distributed estimation, world model building, knowledge sharing
  • Distributed task recognition, allocation, and scheduling  

Please direct your resumes/CVs and questions to Gail Woodward (gail.m.woodward@jpl.nasa.gov) and Amir Rahmani (amir.rahmani@jpl.nasa.gov)
