Hiring a Ph.D. Student

Applications are invited for Ph.D. positions in INFORMATION-THEORETIC PLANNING. The positions are with the Department of Computational Science and Engineering at North Carolina A&T State University; the students will work under the supervision of Dr. John Park. The research is funded by the National Science Foundation.

This project will establish a new route planning with a set of novel techniques for probabilistic information gain by predicting potential speed classification of future arrival locations.
