The Next Generation Systems Research Group (NGS) at the University of Texas at Arlington, USA, is seeking candidates for full time Ph.D. openings, available immediately.

Multiple graduate research assistant positions are available in several research areas:

1)      Assistive robotics: Physical human-robot interaction using robotic skin, adaptive impedance control using reinforcement learning

2)      Humanoid robotics: dynamical control and balancing, energy efficient locomotion

3)      Micro and nano robotics: millimeter-scale robots, micro and nano assembly

The research culture in the group is multi-disciplinary, spanning 3 different departments, and 3 laboratory locations, including the UT Arlington Research Institute Facilities. The Ph.D. program duration will be 3-5 years.

Successful applicants would have:

-              B.S. or M.S. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering

-              Background and research experience in the three areas listed above

-              Strong analytical and experimental skills

-              Stellar recommendations for research

-              A passion for robotics research

UT Arlington is located in the Dallas-Ft Worth metro area, 20 minutes from a major international airport, and offers competitive salaries for graduate students.
