Two PhD positions are available in the Intelligent Motion Lab (IML) at the
School of Informatics and Computing, Indiana University at Bloomington on
the topics of planning and control.  IML is seeking creative, motivated
students for NSF projects on 1) planning under uncertainty for clinical
decision support and 2) assisted teleoperation for robot manipulation. 


Candidates should have an educational background in artificial intelligence,
robotics, control theory, or related discipline, and will demonstrate
promise for conducting successful academic research.


These positions will begin in the 2014-2015 academic year. Funding as a
research assistant is guaranteed for 3+ years, with an additional year
guaranteed as a teaching assistant.

*** About the Intelligent Motion Lab ***

The Intelligent Motion Lab studies motion planning and control for
intelligent robotic and biological systems. Our research applies
computational, mathematical, and statistical techniques to address the
complexity of high-dimensional motion in unstructured, dynamic, and
uncertain environments, and seeks applications to domestic and industrial
robotic manipulation, human-robot interaction, robot- and computer-assisted
surgery, and legged locomotion. The lab is directed by Prof. Kris Hauser and
is part of the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing.


IML bridges theory to practice by combining high-performance computing and
simulation tools with a variety of robot hardware. Our overall goal is to
contribute new tools, techniques, and theories that will help machines
perform sophisticated physical tasks with high value to society.
