The Socially Intelligent Machines Lab (http://www.cc.gatech.edu/social-machines/ <http://www.cc.gatech.edu/social-machines/>), is moving to UT Austin. We will be accepting multiple new PhD students for the Fall 2016 admissions cycle.

Specific interest areas include: Robot Learning from Demonstrations, Interactive Machine Learning, Algorithms and Control for Human-Robot Interaction, Robust Autonomy for interactions in dynamic human environments.  The SIM lab is made up of both ECE and CS PhD students.

Additionally, UT has created a Graduate Portfolio Program in Robotics. The robotics certification expands the opportunities for graduating students looking for academic and/or research positions related to robotics in any department. The program will highlight their interdisciplinary skills spanning multiple disciplines beyond their degreed department.  You would apply for this program after being admitted into one of the above two programs.  More information can be found here:
