Job offer in london PhD Studentship in Robotic Manipulation at Imperial College London



Imperial College London – Dyson School of Design Engineering

The REDS Lab (www.imperial.ac.uk/reds-lab/) within the Dyson School of Design Engineering, Imperial College London invites applications for a PhD studentship in robotic manipulation. Research will focus on the control, fabrication, and mechanics of a novel type of robot hands that departs from current trends in the field and has the potential to highly reduce the complexities of manipulating objects dexterously under substantial levels of both shape diversity and shape uncertainty.

Applications are invited from highly-motivated and talented candidates with (or who expect to gain) a first-class honours degree or an equivalent degree in Engineering or a related discipline. Potential applicants might indeed come from a range of backgrounds, but prior experience in the analysis, design, and implementation of robotic systems is strongly preferred. For other details of entry requirements, please see www.imperial.ac.uk/study/pg/apply/requirements/.

Funding is available for UK citizens. The studentship is for 3.5 years starting as soon as possible and will provide full coverage of tuition fees and a stipend. Applications will be assessed as received and all applicants should follow the standard College application procedure. To apply, please go to www.imperial.ac.uk/study/pg/apply/how-to-apply/.

Interested applicants should also send a CV describing their background, skill set and career goals, along with any other relevant information to Dr Nicolas Rojas (www.imperial.ac.uk/people/n.rojas).
