PhD Studentship Data-driven Adaptation of Physics Simulation for Control of Soft-body Robots

University of Cambridge - Department of Engineering

A funded PhD Studentship is available at Bio-Inspired Robotics Laboratory, University of Cambridge, UK. We seek strong candidates who have experiences in the research area of design, control, and simulation of soft robots.

Priority will be given to the candidates with strong background and experiences in one or more of the following research areas:

  • Design, modelling and control of soft robots
  • Development and experimentations with soft functional materials
  • 3D printing and other rapid prototyping technologies
  • Modelling and simulation of deformable structures and robots
  • Computer graphics and physics-based simulation
  • Machine learning for robots and evolutionary robotics

More information about the Bio-Inspired Robotics Lab can be found at: divf.eng.cam.ac.uk/birl

Applicants should have (or expect to obtain by the start date) a high 2.1, preferably a 1st class honours degree in Engineering, Robotics or a related subject.

This EPSRC funded studentship is available for Home and EU students. Home students and certain EU students will receive a full studentship including fees and maintenance. EU students will receive a fees only award. Details on eligibility can be found on the EPSRC website www.epsrc.ac.uk/skills/students/help/eligibility. Overseas students are not eligible and should not apply.

Industrial top-up maintenance funding is expected to be available.

Applications should be made on-line via the Cambridge Graduate Admissions Office before the deadline: www.admin.cam.ac.uk/students/gradadmissions/prospec/apply/ with Dr Fumiya Iida identified as the potential supervisor

The University values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.
