The Robotic Manipulation and Mobility Lab at Columbia University is seeking
applications for PhD positions in the general field of robotics.

Areas of interest include:
* robotic manipulation in unstructured domains
* hand design
* assistive and rehabilitation robotics, wearable robotics
* simulation and virtual environments

Background: robotics is inherently multi-disciplinary, and some of the best
work of the future is likely to come from researchers able to span multiple
disciplines. Candidates are expected to have a BS or MS degree in
Mechanical or Electrical Engineering, or Computer Science. Experience with
any of the following is a plus:
* introductory or advanced topics in robotics (kinematic chains, motion
planning, vision and sensing, etc.)
* control systems
* mechanism design, mechatronics, CAD
* Robot Operating System (ROS)
* multi-body dynamics and simulation
* object-oriented programming, software engineering
