We have studentships available at the University of Leeds for PhD study.
The links to two projects are provided below. The first project focuses on
planning and control for robotic manipulation, and will be supervised by me
(Mehmet Dogar). The second project focuses on the intersection of
reinforcement learning and robotic manipulation, and will be co-supervised
by Dr Matteo Leonetti and me. More information about funding for different
nationalities is below. Deadline is 6 January 2020.
