Please advertise the following position.

Applicants having Master's degree (or soon obtaining) are sought for one Ph.D. position at University of Tartu, Estonia at Intelligent Materials and Systems Lab (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__ims.ut.ee_mediawiki_index.php_Main-5FPage&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=UFZsDMTiPWjOJ5G326YOR5GttI7kh3XP5LIXDbmIlpM&s=hLbMjok7Mwfe0G0523YjL9Fh2EMxHXdzKrKbvvz9KK4&e=).  Applicants would have enough freedom to shape the research according to their interests. Moreover, both research tracks already have sufficiently matured foundation in the group with extensive code-base with the help of which the applicant can build his/her research and enjoy strong publication support. The lab has multiple manipulators and mobile manipulators to facilitate implementation of ideas. The research would be done in close collaboration with Tampere University, Finland and Johannes Kepler University, Austria

Research Area: Pushing the state of the art in optimization based motion planning and control.
The proposed research would aim to make fundamental contributions towards exploiting the structure of non-convex optimization problems frequently encountered in robotics motion planning and control and thus improving the reliability of such approaches in dynamic environments.

Prospective students are requested to contact Assoc. Prof. Arun Kumar Singh (arun.singh at ut.ee) asap
