Multiple PhD positions in Robotics and Cyber-Physical Systems at the University of Virginia

Applications are invited for multiple fully-funded PhD positions starting in Fall 2017 at the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Systems & Information Engineering at the University of Virginia. Successful candidates will be expected to conduct research in the general area of cyber-physical systems (CPS) and robotics, with potential applications in healthcare, autonomous vehicles and smart cities.  Exceptional undergraduate and Master’s students from all majors relevant to CPS and robotics are encouraged to apply (including, but not limited to, Computer Science, Systems and Information Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics). Suitable candidates need to have a strong background in mathematics, good programming skills (MATLAB, Python, C++, or Java), and excellent English communication skills. Candidates with background in one or more of the following areas are preferred: formal methods, machine learning, security, and control.

The University of Virginia is rated as one of the top 3 public universities in the United States. The School of Engineering has recently launched a multi-million dollar initiative to create a collaborative world class center of research excellence in CPS, named the Link Lab (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__linklab.virginia.edu&d=DQIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=YJd6YAECxgzp1otIBXWvfdTvkO5Yu91L3K5P2xrX6uM&s=z50KJYyV9_XL270zCCD72pkDNwtWFUgpXvm4N8btMfU&e= <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__linklab.virginia.edu_&d=DQIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=YJd6YAECxgzp1otIBXWvfdTvkO5Yu91L3K5P2xrX6uM&s=kN8722cnoQbN7gC8BiK518MZ18ApTSfcrKZV4E29lfw&e= >). Successful PhD candidates will participate the Link Lab and find a vibrant culture to conduct innovative, interdisciplinary, and foundational research. The University of Virginia is located in Charlottesville, which has recently been voted the #1 best college town to live and work in America (more information can be found at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.cs.virginia.edu_about_why.html&d=DQIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=YJd6YAECxgzp1otIBXWvfdTvkO5Yu91L3K5P2xrX6uM&s=jHIA7wWKxqwNxsCs6h1EUWAc6ZGLsmvwQtx9g5KXepc&e= ).
