[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Two PhD Studentships in Bio-Inspired Aerial Robotics at Imperial College London

Kovac, Mirko
Two PhD Studentships in Bio-Inspired Aerial Robotics


Applications are invited for two fully funded PhD studentship positions within the Aerial Robotics Laboratory at Imperial College London https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.imperial.ac.uk_aerial-2Drobotics&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Lt_1WseHe9mOtUIX2G9P3yE9r8l4ovnuKIpocd1E_Zg&s=q4SLGMkMCbmv119SGS4w04mv36nAgfmiJXcqnfeO1dg&e= . The project will investigate (1) machine learning approaches for a novel class of biologically inspired aerial robots with changing body morphologies and (2) novel mechatronic solutions for mobile robots that are capable to move in various terrains using multi-modal locomotion modules.

The successful candidate will directly benefit from outstanding facilities in Aerial Robotics manufacturing and testing, including a new Vicon equipped multi-terrain flight arena, 17 wind/water tunnels and the rapid prototyping and composite fabrication centre at the Aeronautics Department. The work location will be the central London South Kensington campus next to Hyde Park offering an excellent ecosystem for furtherance of the project, start-up creation and for personal development in a variety of areas.

Applicants should have a MSc/MEng (or equivalent) in Engineering or a related discipline. Applicants must have a strong academic record in Computer Science, Mechanical or Control Engineering preferably with relevant experience in UAV control, mechatronics integration and machine learning.

“Funding is available for UK citizens and EU citizens who have resided in the UK for the past three years. The studentship is for 3.5 years starting as soon as possible and will provide full coverage of tuition fees and an annual tax-free stipend of approximately £16,296.”

Applications will be assessed as received and all applicants should follow the standard College application procedure (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www3.imperial.ac.uk_pgprospectus_howtoapply&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Lt_1WseHe9mOtUIX2G9P3yE9r8l4ovnuKIpocd1E_Zg&s=HYkSAoBtc8KU42mDrzyR3786b2J362licANM9kl2IOg&e= ).
