PhD and MS Research Assistantship Positions on Robotics 
at Idaho State University, USA 

***********************************************************

PhD and MS Research Assistantship positions in Robotics will be available starting in January 2013 in the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the College of Science and Engineering at Idaho State University (ISU), Pocatello, Idaho, USA.

The students will join a multi-year, NSF-funded project and will work on the development of a formulation for the design multi-fingered grasping devices, with applications to human-robot and anthropomorphic tasks. 

Applicants for the PhD research assistantship position should have a Master’s degree in Mechanical engineering or similar discipline. Applicants for the MS research assistantship position should have completed an undergraduate degree in Mechanical engineering or similar discipline. For both, a strong background on robotics, kinematics, computer science and mathematics will be also considered during the selection process.

The Research Assistantship covers tuition and fees, medical insurance and a monthly stipend.

Interested students must contact and subsequently submit their resumes, along with transcripts and statement of purpose, to Dr. Alba Perez Gracia (email: perealba at isu.edu ) before October 1, and apply for admission to ISU Graduate School (http://www.isu.edu/graduate). For doing that, the student must comply with the graduate school requirements for PhD in Engineering and Applied Science.
