Aalto University Department of Automation and Systems Technology invites applications for doctoral students at the Micro- and Nanorobotics group.

We are looking for talented students to investigate, design, and develop next generation of highly-automated micro- and nanorobotic systems with frontier applications in biological cell manipulation and microassembly. To achieve better performance and reliability beyond today's micro- and nanorobots, both robotic hardware as well as perception and control algorithms needs to be improved to better treat the manipulation uncertainties in the micro- and nano world.

The student should have recently received, or is expected to finalize within a few months, a Master's degree in mechatronics, robotics and/or automation, micro- and nanotechnology, or other related fields. Strong programming skill is expected, computer science studies are a plus. We also value minor studies in physics or biology, and previous experience in practical experimental projects.

The deadline is 31.12.2013.
