[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PhD positions in Robotics (Computer Science) at Colorado School of Mines

Neil T. Dantam-2
Multiple RA/TA positions are available in the Fall of 2019 for
Ph.D. study in Computer Science with the Algorithmic Robotics Group at
Colorado School of Mines.


Algorithmic Robotics Group
==========================

The Algorithmic Robotics Group is comprised of four laboratories in
the Department of Computer Science, each investigating different
research areas related to robotics, and each recruiting for multiple
open positions. Mines' Algorithmic Robotics Group combines expertise
in perception, cognition, planning, and networking for robotics, and
provides students with access to a wide variety of robot platforms
(including the Pepper, Nao, Husky, Jackal, Jaco, and Baxter robots,
among others), a collaborative, interdisciplinary community of
researchers, and access to unique robot application sites, including
underground facilities and the Rocky Mountains.


Dynamic Automata Lab
Director: Prof. Neil T. Dantam ([hidden email])
------------------------------
Successful candidates are expected to conduct research in automated
planning, artificial intelligence, motion control, and robot system
software, with potential applications in robot manipulation, service
robotics, and cyber-physical systems.

For more information, please visit the Dynamic Automata Lab’s website:

Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Mines is located in
Golden, Colorado, 15 miles west of Denver and 20 miles south of
Boulder.  Mines' idyllic location combines the natural beauty of
Colorado---with its world class hiking, skiing, and famously sunny
weather---and the vibrant urban cultures of Denver and Boulder---with
their renowned art and music scenes and booming technology
centers---which contribute to nearby Denver's 2016 #1 ranking as
U.S. News and World Report's best place to live in America.
