[robotics-worldwide] [Jobs] Last call for PhD positions in bioinspired underwater soft robotics, deadline 16th Jan 2018.

Francesco Giorgio-Serchi
A new exciting position on the design and control of soft-bodied unmanned
underwater vehicle is currently available at the University of Southampton.

The PhD project is part of the jointly funded NERC-EPSRC Centre for
Doctoral Training "NEXUSS" (Next Generation Unmanned System Science). This
PhD project, lasting 3 years and 8 months and starting in September 2017,
will be undertaken jointly among the University of Southampton (UoS)
Fluid-Structure-Interaction Research Group, the National Oceanography
Centre Southampton (NOCS) and the Ocean Systems Lab at Heriot-Watt
Unviersity (HWU). The students will be supervised by Dr. G. Weymouth and
Dr. F. Giorgio-Serchi (UoS), Prof. A. Garabato (NOCS) and Prof. D. Lane

For a detailed description of the project, please see the following link:
