[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PhD positions in multi-robot systems

Mahdi Hassan
Up to three fully-funded PhD positions are available at Centre for Autonomous Systems (CAS) within the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). The doctoral students will be part of a team and carry out research on an exciting new project. The doctoral candidate positions are full-time, available from November 2018. As a doctoral student at CAS, the successful candidates will have access to an outstanding PhD program with very competitive benefits, and opportunity to collaborate with / mentored by renowned researchers and academics.

The PhD topics are about the development of methodologies that enable multi-robot systems to clean and maintain complex steel structures such as commercial cargo ship-hulls and truss structure. The research topics include (but not limited to) complete coverage planning, coordination of multiple robots, sensing and perception, motion planning and control.

- Excellent written and spoken English skills,
- Be self-motivated and independent,
- A strong interest in robotics, programming, and mathematics,
- A Master degree in robotics, computer science, mechanical/mechatronic engineering, electrical engineering, or related fields (or a bachelor degree in such fields with outstanding transcript),
- Programming with Matlab, C++, or Python.

Please send your CV, transcripts, and publications (if applicable) to Dr Mahdi Hasson ([hidden email]<mailto:[hidden email]>) or Professor Dikai Liu ([hidden email]<mailto:[hidden email]>) by October 15th 2018. Please also illustrate how your research interests/experiences align with this project and robotics in general.

CAS' vision is to be an internationally recognised leader, at a scale and quality to be globally significant, for robotics research, development and commercial application of "Autonomous and Human Interactive Robotics". Since its establishment in 2003, CAS has demonstrated leadership in driving research advancements in robotics and in delivering real-world solutions to key challenges facing government, industry and the wider community. Examples
 include the research in Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM), autonomous abrasive blasting robots and bio-inspired climbing robots both deployed in the Sydney Harbour Bridge for inspection and maintenance. CAS has developed a very strong engagement program with industry and governments. CAS prides itself on a culture of "cooperation, collaboration and ownership".
