   ***** PhD Student Position Available at Orebro University *****

       Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS)
                     Orebro University, Sweden

One PhD position in Computer Science is available for immediate start at
the Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) of Örebro
University, Sweden.

The student will work in the framework of a European research project on
robotic and ubiquitous cognitive networks.  This project combines
traditional artificial intelligence reasoning techniques for networked
robot systems with dynamic learning.  The aim is to create a
self-organising and goal oriented ecology of networked robotic devices.
Specific research directions include middleware services for
introspection, action and configuration planning, and how traditional AI
reasoning methods for these can be integrated with dynamic learning

Candidates should have a very strong background in computer science, and
specifically in artificial intelligence.  Detailed information about the
position and the application procedure can be found at


Applications can be sent immediately, and they will be accepted until
the position is filled.

About the working place:

Orebro University (www.oru.se) is a modern university currently
enrolling about 18,000 students.  It is located in Orebro, a city of
130,000 inhabitants situated in central Sweden (www.orebro.se).

The AASS Mobile Robotics Lab (www.aass.oru.se/Research/Robots) is one
of the three research groups within the Center for Applied Autonomous
Sensor Systems at Orebro University.  AASS performs multi-disciplinary
research in robotics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and
measurement technology.  The research and human environment at AASS is
young and enthusiastic.  Researchers come from a dozen different
countries, in Europe and worldwide, and have different scientific and
cultural backgrounds.  AASS also frequently hosts international
researchers and is involved in several international projects.  This
means that the enrolled PhD students will have the opportunity to
travel and to cooperate with people in other countries.

AASS is internationally renowned for its work in cognitive robotics and
robot ecologies, therefore the selected student will be at the forefront
of world research in these areas.
