We are currently searching for candidates to undertake PhDs in planning for robot behaviour. In particular we are looking for students interested in working on planning problems in open worlds or with epistemic goals. These projects involve collaboration between the Intelligent Robotics Lab at the University of Birmingham (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.cs.bham.ac.uk_research_groupings_robotics_&d=CwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=syl8SZ2VOBsgVRyBqxxkIPmSmJ7ZrjTqi0VObTwn0ak&s=g-rc9n8sOXVdemlADdDfcmmAOm3JdP5eCC9JlkUimzA&e= ) and the AI and Autonomy Group at the University of Melbourne (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__agentlab.cis.unimelb.edu.au_project-2Dhac.html&d=CwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=syl8SZ2VOBsgVRyBqxxkIPmSmJ7ZrjTqi0VObTwn0ak&s=U5unebTrVN1XB25e4Q-rbMaq9VKufapD-1XDL0dwJYQ&e= ). The successful candidates will share their time between Birmingham, UK and Melbourne, Australia, with joint supervision provided by AI and robotics experts at both sites.
