The Control Engineering Group (CEG) at the department of Computer Science and Electrical and Space Engineering at Luleå University of Technology, is now looking for a 2 PhDs to our growing activities in the areas of Automatic Control with a focus on Robotics.
Control Engineering comprises the analysis, design, optimization and implementation of autonomous control systems.
The research topic is in the area of Control Engineering. The current PhD position will focus on Aerial Robotics with an emphasis in real life applications like Mining Environments inspection, power line inspection, and social robotics within the list of the previous research directions. Advanced knowledge of automatic control and fundamental principles in robotics is a must, while significant software (ROS and Matlab) is also considered as a plus. Specific research topics include:
- Design, Development and Control of Collaborative aerial and ground agents
- Collaborative formation and scenario accomplishment
- Collaborative Vision for robotics
- Decentralized Task execution and overall mission planning
- Visual Servoing
- Deep Learning for Autonomy and Adaptation
- Aerial Vision
- Networked Control
- Switching Reconfigurable Control
- Collaborative Mapping and Exploration
- Field Robotics
- Reinforcement Learning for task replication
To be qualified for the position, the applicant must have a MSc degree in Electrical/Mechanical Engineering or related subject.
The candidate will perform research with substantial experimental components that should be published in peer-reviewed international journals and at major conferences. The position will include supervision of MSc students, Teaching Assistant tasks and support in acquire funding for future research projects from research funding agencies/councils, EU framework program or industry. The candidate will need to represent the group in different occasions, both in Sweden and abroad, to have an excellence in speaking English.
