PhD and MS Positions - Robotics
GW Robotics and Mechatronics Laboratory, Washington, DC
The Robotics and Mechatronics Laboratory (RML) in the George Washington
University – the flagship Robotics Research Center of the University – is
seeking highly qualified candidates for available positions in the Ph.D. and
M.S. levels starting as early as January (Spring) 2012. The ideal candidate
will have a lively interest in both system building and theory. She or he
will enjoy the opportunity to work collaboratively with other researchers
