[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Immediate PhD/Postdoc Positions at UC San Diego - Robot Muscles, Surgical Robotics, Planning

Michael Yip
The Advanced Robotics and Controls Lab at UC San Diego (ucsdarclab.com),
under the direction of Prof. Michael Yip, invites has open, funded
positions available immediately until the end of year for the following

1. Artificial Muscles
2. Autonomous Surgical Robotics
3. Reinforcement Learning for Planning

Specific skillsets of interest are:
    1. imitation learning and model-based reinforcement learning (Topic 1,
2, 3)
    2. nonlinear or combinatorial optimization  (Topic 1, 3)
    3. continuum robots or other minimally invasive surgical robot
platforms (Topic  2)
    4. Visual servoing and model predictive control  (Topic 2, 3)

Candidate are expected to lead independent research projects, work closely
with our industry and medical collaborators, mentor students, and publish
in high-impact journals each year. Applicants should have evidence of being
skilled in systems development and engineering. A strong publication record
