Applications from excellent individuals interested in a PhD or Postdoctoral position are always welcomed.
We have a PhD vacancy in our team: "Risk-aware motion planning"! In this PhD you will investigate methods for risk-aware motion planning among decision-making agents, using learning and optimization, and apply them to self-driving cars and teams of drones. --> More information and how to apply
