PhD POSITION @ University of Nevada, Reno  (Kostas Alexis)

-- The Autonomous Robots Lab (ARL: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.autonomousrobotslab.com_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=n2sT_wFA7kkVlCTDcMlq040jhoNbrkmn5gOXaLnmjck&s=_EtdStRLNPoeOB-D7I5nJTREIf003kJqIkekADyanHc&e=) at
the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.unr.edu_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=n2sT_wFA7kkVlCTDcMlq040jhoNbrkmn5gOXaLnmjck&s=nlrNB0CqTdcxekZGUUmS6VLbswYyVgnkgNJO2BEPwaE&e=) was recently
awarded a project on “Mine Inspection Robotics”. Funding of the project
comes from the Nevada Knowledge Fund, while it is further supported and
strongly based on the collaboration with Barrick Gold Corporation. The
emphasis of the project relates to the utilization of aerial robots for
underground mine inspection, mapping and monitoring.

-- To perform the research activities of this project and to broadly
contribute in the direction of advanced robotic autonomy, we open PhD
positions for research in aerial robotics. The particular focus of the
positions is related with a) the problems of multi-modal sensor fusion and
machine learning, as well as b) path planning for autonomous robots in
challenging environments and domains.

-- Expression of interest may be indicated via e-mail, addressed to Prof.
Kostas Alexis (please use title: “PhD Application” and send an e-mail at:
[hidden email]) and include:
* a full CV,
* a statement of achievements, research interests and objectives (1-2
* the transcripts of all obtained degrees (in English), the names and
contact details of three references, and
A remote interview to discuss technical specifics may be arranged.

Please note that a “first come, first served” policy is followed in the
evaluation of the applications until a suitable candidate is appointed.
