The Advanced Robotics and Controls Lab at UCSD has several post-doctoral
and PhD students positions for immediate hire in the area of *machine
learning and automation for surgical robotics.* The researcher will work on
planning, decision making, and control for surgical telerobots, and in
particular, inverse reinforcement learning and optimal control. The work
will involve interacting with clinicians and other engineers in a
multidisciplinary group, and has applications in civilian and military
medicine.  The postdoctoral researcher will join the group of Prof. Michael
