1 doctoral student position in Computer Science at Örebro University

About the position

Örebro University and the School of Science and Technology are looking for a doctoral student for the doctoral programme in Computer Science, concluding with a doctoral degree. This PhD project will be placed within a research arena (WARA) connected to the WASP program.

The doctoral student will be employed in the project “Learning Object Affordances for Full-body Mobile Manipulation.” The project aim at using machine learning to extract information about the ways in which objects in the environment allow a mobile manipulator to perform complex tasks. In this context, the project define an affordance as a set of constraints that when satisfied afford a particular task objective: e.g., a door opening affordance could be formalized as a sequence of constraints on robot base motion, contact regions and object wrenches that allow the robot to execute a door opening motion. The focus of this PhD project will be on processing and integrating perceptual data to extract such full-body control affordances.

Starting date is end of autumn 2023, at the latest.
