PhD Studentship in Aerial Robotics

Imperial College London

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship position within the Aerial Robotics Laboratory at Imperial College London. The project will investigate automated fabrication approaches with aerial robots and is part of a large EPSRC initiative that is lead by the Aerial Robotics Lab. Main research thrusts will include advanced control of novel morphing aerial robots 
and dynamic flight as well as system integration, optimisation and testing.

The project will directly benefit from outstanding facilities in Aerial Robotics manufacturing and testing, including a Vicon equipped flight arena, 13 wind/water tunnels and the rapid prototyping and composite fabrication centre at the Aeronautics Department. The work location will be the central London South Kensington campus next to Hyde Park offering an excellent ecosystem for furtherance of the project and for personal development in a variety of areas.

Applicants should have a MSc/MEng (or equivalent) in Engineering or a related discipline. Applicants must have a strong academic record in Aeronautical, Mechanical or Control Engineering preferably with relevant experience in Aerial Robot control, mechatronics integration and testing. The successful candidate will also closely work with and co-supervise MSc students.

“Funding is available for UK and EU citizens. The studentship is for 3.5 years starting as soon as possible and will provide full coverage of tuition fees and an annual tax-free stipend of approximately £16,057.”
