Dear All,

This is a call for applications for a fully funded 3.5 years EPSRC DTP PhD
studentship in the area of Robotics and Autonomous Systems in the Department
of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management, Faculty of Engineering,
University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK.

The aim of this PhD project is to develop novel strategies for adaptive,
intelligent and robust control of autonomous robots through the study of
dynamic interactions between robots and their harsh environments. Through
these advanced control strategies, it aims to solve the challenging tasks
on how to efficiently deal with the dynamic interactions between autonomous
robots and their environments.

 The student candidate should have a first or second class Honours degree
(minimum 2.1) or an MSc in robotics, electronic engineering, computer
science or a relevant engineering discipline. Previous experience and
knowledge in control theory, machine vision, and artificial intelligence
would be desirable.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate enthusiasm, responsibility,
creativity, resourcefulness, an interest in robotics and autonomous
systems, and an effective approach to learning. Good interpersonal skills
and collaboration capabilities will be an asset.

The 3.5-year studentship will cover student fees and a tax free stipend of
£14,057 *per *annum.

To apply for this PhD studentship, candidates should complete an online
