The AASS Mobile Robotics and Olfaction Lab at University of Örebro, Sweden has
an open Ph.D. position within AI/Machine Learning for robotics. The position is
fully funded, with a competitive salary, for a period of four years.
Applications will be accepted until September 15th, 2018, with an expected
employment in January 2019.

Research Topic: Domain Prior-based Deep Learning (DoPed DL) for Mobile Robot
Olfaction*. The Ph.D. candidate will have the opportunity to work with an
advanced MRO simulation engine, a large number of datasets, and existing
gas-sensitive robots and sensor networks. The Ph.D. candidate can also draw upon
a substantial network of established research collaborations. The position will
be associated to projects within the WASP-AI initiative**.

Prerequisites and Application Process: In addition to a strong interest in the
topic, a solid theoretical background and excellent programming skills,
applicants should also have the equivalent of a Master's degree (120 ECTS) in a
relevant field (e.g., Machine Learning, Computer Science Physics, Applied
Mathematics, Robotics) or a related discipline with a clear focus on Artificial
Intelligence or Machine Learning. Experience in Robotics is a plus. Proficiency
in written/spoken English is mandatory. To apply for the position, please send a
motivation letter / research statement along with an updated CV (including at
least two academic references) by e mail to Prof. Achim J. Lilienthal
(achim.lilienthal at oru.se <mailto:achim.lilienthal at oru.se>). If possible, please
include copies/links to publications and software samples. Applications can be
sent immediately and will be considered until the position is fixed.

* Mobile Robot Olfaction: Mobile Robot Olfaction (MRO) is concerned with mobile
robot systems equipped with an artificial sense of smell and suitable other
environmental sensors. Applications range from finding gas leaks to surveillance
in the context of climate research. To address key problems in MRO (e.g., gas
discrimination, modeling gas distributions and finding gas sources), analytic
domain models are of limited use: typically only crude sensor models are
available and gas dispersal is a chaotic process in non-artificial environments
at non-microscopic scales.
