Hi there --

Northeastern University is building a large and diverse robotics group. 
Several faculty are recruiting new PhD students to start in the Fall of 
2016 including:

Taskin Padir,  tpadir at ece.neu.edu -- robot modelling and control

Robert Platt, rplatt at ccs.neu.edu -- perception and planning for robot 
manipulation

Hanumant Singh, hsingh at whoi.edu -- underwater robotics and imaging

Peter Whitney, j.whitney at neu.edu -- medical robotics and human-safe 
robot design

Northeastern University has a thriving urban campus located in the heart 
of Boston's medical, cultural, and higher education communities. 
Internationally ranked departments in Computer Science, Electrical and 
Computer Engineering, and Mechanical and Industrial Engineering support 
a vibrant, cross-disciplinary robotics program. Northeastern was 
recently selected by NASA as one of only two institutions to receive an 
R5 Valkyrie humanoid robot, a state-of-the-art system for advancing 
robot control, perception, and manipulation for both terrestrial and 
extra-terrestrial operations:
