Fully funded PhD position in Autonomous Driving and Advanced Driving
INRIA Rhône-Alpes and Renault France.
Team e-Motion at INRIA Rhône-Alpes, Grenoble, France and Renault are looking
for a highly motivated PhD student to continue our ongoing collaboration on
Advanced Driving Assistance Systems and Autonomous Navigation. The proposed
work shall focus on the development of models and methods for autonomous
driving in realistic environments. The proposed approach is to improve and
extend upon our existing methods for collision risk assessment, risk-based
planning/navigation and probabilistic safety evaluation. Further information
will be provided by request for candidates who have submitted an
For examples of previous work, potential candidates may refer to:
- S. Lefèvre, C. Laugier, J. Ibañez-Guzmán, "Context-based prediction of
vehicle destination at road intersections", Proc. IEEE Symposium on
Computational Intelligence in Vehicles and Transportation Systems
- S. Lefèvre, C. Laugier, J. Ibañez-Guzmán, "Risk assessment at road
intersections: comparing intention and expectation", Proc. IEEE
Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (IV), 2012. Best PhD paper award.
The position is to be filled as soon as posible and applications should
before March 14th.
The ideal candidate should hold a MSc in a related discipline, obtained not
earlier than 30 months ago, or be about to obtain such degree before
are looking for candidates with strong analytical skills and creativity, as
well as knowledge in stochastic processes, decision making, perception and
robotics. The candidate must have experience in software development in
Linux. The PhD candidate shall be capable of working autonomously on
tasks. Team work is crucial as it is the capability to perform
an equipped experimental car. Familiarity with CUDA and Boost libraries
appreciated. Experience using the Robotics library ROS and fluency in
will be an advantage.
Applicants should submit:
- A one page cover letter describing their background and motivations.
- Curriculum Vitae.
- Publication list.
- Contact information of at least one referee.
Applications should be sent in a single PDF document to:
