The University of New South Wales, Australia, is offering two Ph.D. student scholarships (3 years) to join a project between the recently established Creative Robotics Lab (National Institute of Experimental Arts) and the School of Computer Science and Engineering.

The project (Blue Iris) aims to broaden the investigation of intelligence in the field of AI and human-robot interaction through the use of experimental arts. The Blue Iris project is about exploring and altering physical space by creating an interactive system that incorporates intimate affective human-machine (and human-robot) interaction. The multi-sensory system will incorporate vision, touch and sound.

Required candidate background:
- Excellent general engineering or AI skills
- Major in computer science, computer engineering or related area
- Software engineering experience and good programming skills (Python/C++)
- Strong English communication skills

For students who are not Australian citizens or permanent residents, these scholarships do not include tuition costs. Applications for separate tuition scholarships require a separate application and information is available on request.

Candidates should send applications to m.pagnucco at unsw.edu.au and include:
- a letter of interest outlining research interests and goals,
- a CV,
- at least one letter of recommendation.
