DIEM has openings for fully-funded PhDs in the following research areas.

1) Probabilistic control of robots
The program tackles the fundamental problem of devising probabilistic
control strategies for robots interacting with humans. The algorithms will
take into account the probabilistic nature of human actions and will devise
randomized optimal policy to handle these. The techniques will be applied
onto industrial use-cases.

2) Sequential probabilistic decision making
This program investigates how to reliably make autonomous decisions and
control for autonomous agents purely from data. Research questions include
how to design autonomous systems capable of synthesizing control policies,
with guaranteed properties, from example datasets.

To apply, please e-mail the research area of interest to giovarusso at unisa.it
with the subject line "PHD positions". Also, attach:

   - a cover letter (1-page max) specifying how your experience and skills
   match the position
   - a brief curriculum vitae

Thanks and best regards,
