The Computer Science department at Lund University, Sweden, has an open PhD  positions in the area of
Robotics and safety.

Lund is a beautiful university town in southern Sweden with the size of Oxford, a very innovative and creative city with many startups and everything in biking distance.

Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) are important features for future autonomous systems that are meant to “live” in human-populated environments, let it be in public or in a factory hall. Consider, e.g., autonomous cars or autonomous drones.
Together with the software technology group in at Lund University we want to explore novel software-engineering approaches, e.g., a domain-specific language approach, to deal with RAMS on the control level, the functional level and on the deliberate level.
The goal is to develop an approach to robot programming that supports, e.g., reliability and safety not only on the software level (i.e. the code provably does what it is supposed to do) but also on the behavioural level of the robot, i.e., even in uncertain and unexpected situations, the robot behaves reliably and safe.


Ideally, you have done your master thesis either in computer vision, machine learning or in robotics.
Furthermore, it is important that you

  *   like to work things out mathematically
  *   have good communications skills in English
  *   want to work both independently and in a team
  *   you have the hacker gene, and you like Python, C++, and Linux

The positions are fully funded 4-year PhD positions and are funded by the national Wallenberg Autonomous Systems and Software Programme (WASP). If desired, the position can be extended to 5 yrs.

We offer you
—  a creative, diverse, and collaborative working environment in one of the world's most innovative and most liveable areas [2,4]
—  an integration into the WASP Graduate School [3], which offers regular opportunities (courses, workshops, international study trips) for learning more about autonomous systems and linking up with interdisciplinary teams and universities
—  Sufficient funding for equipment and travel
—  A full-time salaried position as state employee with full typical Swedish benefits
—  Full-time student status for purposes of union representation and other benefits (e.g., reduced ticket prices)
