PhD studentship to work on next generation swarm robots for industrial applications

I’m looking for a motivated PhD student to work with my Swarm Robotics team at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory and Toshiba Corporation towards the design of next generation swarm robots for factory/industrial applications.

PhD studentships start in September and cover tuition fees, stipends, travel and equipment for 4 years. Information about student eligibility can be found here.

As part of our team, you’d be joining the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, which is one of the biggest robot labs in Europe, with a vibrant ecosystem spanning all of robotics. The swarm robotics team within the laboratory provides a highly multi-disciplinary environment specialising in large-scale swarm deployments for real-world applications spanning nanomedicine to environmental monitoring. As part of the team, you’ll have access to over 1000 robots. Toshiba Corporation is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of electronic facilities and equipment ranging from power generation and distribution, oriels and broadcast communications, semiconductor devices and consumer electronic items such as televisions and laptops.

An ideal candidate will have experience in robotics, and will have shown strong expertise in computer science and algorithm design, wireless networking, or hardware deployment. Atypical and diverse backgrounds are welcome.
