 Hi, everyone. We're now accepting applications for summer 2020 Research
Interns at the following link: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__smrtr.io_3D3zr&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=U_e2mXtWBdrXxZUZCjLSKpS6JQ9ETXoA-POb1fxdbKg&s=Liu46Ng0d6ymHN4m2Iptnw_wlUys9eFNGXDOPmzSltY&e= .

For the Research Scientist and Research Engineer positions I emailed about
some weeks ago, we're nearing the end of the application period. We will
only accept applications through the end of this week. Those roles can be
applied to here:
Research Scientist - Machine Learning for Autonomous Driving Behavior:
Research Engineer - Machine Learning for Autonomous Driving Behavior:

--Information on Bosch Austin--
I've recently begun building an RL/LfD-for-autonomous-vehicles research
team for Bosch, the world's largest automotive supplier (with $51B in
revenue in 2018), who also happens to make nice home appliances and power
tools. Our team has an unusual setup: we office *within* the UT Austin Computer
Science building and are collaborating with Peter Stone, Scott Niekum, and
others here. We plan to publish research on RL and LfD topics---where
autonomous driving may only be one of many applications of the research
results---but we’ll also do R&D that adds algorithms to the Bosch
autonomous vehicle program. In the mix are some human-in-the-loop RL
research projects as well.

Here’s why I’m grateful to be in this group and why it’s a special
opportunity for researchers focusing on RL or LfD for robotics. Features of
Bosch in Austin:

   - an ability to move between fundamental and applied research
   - a focus on autonomous vehicles, a high-impact topic with problems
   spread across the spectrum of application and research
   - competitive industry pay in an academic setting
   - Austin (creative culture, natural beauty, and a low cost of living for
   a US tech hub) )

Please send any questions to my Bosch email, brad.knox at us.bosch.com.
Applications should be made through the links at top.

Best regards,

P.S. Apologies to anyone who receives multiple copies via cross posting.
