PhD Scholarship in Automatic Control at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Outstanding international students are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The funding allows successful candidate to work for two years. Applications are invited up to January 06, 2019.

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 centre 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 architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

The student will join a multi-disciplinary research environment at the Integrated Transport Research Lab. The research is focused on off-board management and control of automated vehicles. Safe and efficient operation of automated vehicles will require advanced systems for monitoring, guidance and control. The goal of the project is to understand how control and guidance on different abstraction levels can be used to reach system level targets, for example on safety, efficiency or productivity. Cooperation between automated and human driven vehicles and the control center (control tower), will aslo be studied, as well as how data, learning and AI can be used in this context. The work will be both theoretic and practical and will involve development and experimentation in our test bed based on miniature vehicles and with our industrial partners.

In order to succeed as an doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work.

The applicant should have a strong background in systems and control. Experience with practical work, implementation and programming is a merit. Previous experience with ROS and Python is desired.

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle studies may be employed as a doctoral student. The term of the initial contract may not exceed one year and may thereafter be extended. Doctoral students may engage in teaching, research, and administration corresponding to a maximum of 20 % of a full-time position.

Apply for the position and admission through KTH’s recruitment system. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the application is complete in accordance with the instructions in the advertisement.

Applications must be received at the last closing date at midnight, CET/CEST (Central European Time/entral European Summer Time).
