[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Multiple Ph.D. Positions in Intelligent Systems and Robotics at the University of West Florida, USA
Prospective Ph.D. Students,
The University of West Florida (UWF), Pensacola, FL, USA in partnership
with the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) located
in downtown Pensacola, FL developed a new Ph.D. program in intelligent
systems and robotics (ISR). The program is the first of its kind in Florida
and one of only a few in the nation. The proliferation of robots and
artificial intelligence and their interactions with humans is gaining
prominence in everyday life and likely to be one of the key transformations
of the 21st century. The Ph.D. program centers on researching and
developing leading-edge intelligent systems and robotic software and
hardware technology that combines human and machine elements to exploit
their respective strengths and mitigate their respective weaknesses.
The UWF-IHMC Ph.D. program brings together the strengths of UWF engineering
and computer science programs with the expertise of the world-class
research center, IHMC. The program will train the next generation of
researchers who will develop technologies combining human and machine
elements through hands-on, leading-edge research leveraging the proximity
and world-class talent at UWF and IHMC, and a course-curriculum tailored to
the students’ interest.
Application for admission to this program is open. Financial support in the
form of research assistantship is available for qualifying candidates.
