ISCApad #301

Thursday, July 06, 2023 by Chris Wellekens

6-49 (2023-05-27) PhD position@ EECS-KTH, Stockholm, Sweden
The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology has an open Ph.D position in Social Robotics at the division of Robotics, Perception and Learning (RPL).
KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key center of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
This project addresses the challenge of how to enable robots to learn in a scalable and cost-efficient manner by gradually acquiring new knowledge from non-expert, semi-situated teachers. To achieve this, computational methods will be developed for robots to query the semi-situated teachers (e.g. crowd workers) and incorporate the newly acquired knowledge into their existing decision-making to further use in situ. This project is funded by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research.
The starting date for the positions is flexible, but preferably during the fall of 2023. 
The candidate must have a degree in Computer Science or related fields. Documented written and spoken English and programming skills are required. Experience with robotics, human-robot interaction, human-computer interaction, multimodal interaction and machine learning are important.
The application should include:
1. Curriculum vitae. 
2. Transcripts from University/College. 
3. Brief description of why the applicant wishes to become a doctoral student. 
The application documents should be uploaded using the KTH's recruitment system. More information here:

The application deadline is ** June 2, 2023 **
