PhD Position in Tactile Robotics / Superresolution
University of Bristol and Bristol Robotics Laboratory, UK.

Applications are invited for a 3.5 year funded PhD Studentship at the
University of Bristol and Bristol Robotics Laboratory, UK.

Funding is available for outstanding UK candidates, at a tax-free
stipend of £14,057 (2015-2016) per year. Further details can be found
at
http://www.bristol.ac.uk/engineering/graduate/pg-open/funding/epsrcdta.html

The studentship is to undertake research on a recently awarded EPSRC
grant on 'Tactile superresolution sensing':
http://gow.epsrc.ac.uk/NGBOViewGrant.aspx?GrantRef=EP/M02993X/1

Further background on the research can be found on the PI's website
(www.lepora.com) and in the paper:
N. Lepora et al. Tactile superresolution and biomimetic hyperacuity.
IEEE Transactions on Robotics 31(3), 605-618, 2015.
http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/TRO.2015.2414135.

The student will work closely with the PI (Dr Lepora) and a
postdoctoral Research Associate funded by the grant, and will join two
other PhD students working on related projects in tactile robotics.

The Studentship is available from now and will remain open for
applications until the position is filled.

Suitable applicants should initially contact N. Lepora
(n.lepora at bristol.ac.uk) enclosing a copy of their CV and a short
paragraph of why they are interested in the position.

**Please note that this studentship is available ONLY to UK citizens,
or EU citizens resident in the UK for at least 3 years.**
