Job description

We invite applications for up to two postdoctoral research positions in the general field of hybrid control for robotic systems. The successful candidates will join a research group that is focusing on new control design methodologies for hybrid systems combining tools from control theory, reinforcement learning and formal verification methodologies from computer science. The positions are associated with the following sub-topics:

Distributed control synthesis from temporal logic specifications: develop control design tools for multi-agent systems to fulfill specifications given as temporal logic formulas from formal verification. In order to combine distributed control with formal methods, discrete abstractions of the distributed multi-agent system should be derived and agent dependencies should be accounted for.

Human-in-the-loop robot control: A hybrid systems approach to the problem is considered where the human provides logical specifications to the robotic system that are translated to continuous control commands. The interaction is bidirectional in the sense that the human should update the input specification and the robotic system should adapt its feedback control in a real-time manner using reinforcement learning approaches.

Multi-robot coordination and manipulation: develop control and task planning methodologies for heterogeneous multi-robot systems with different motion and manipulation capabilities. The robots may have different dynamics, state and input constraints and might or might not be equipped with manipulators for grasping and transportation objectives.

It is expected that the successful candidate will conduct research in the aforementioned research area, interact with doctoral and master students, and be involved in collaborative work in national and international projects. The position is associated to the H2020 EU Project Co4Robots, http://www.co4robots.eu/ , as well as the SSF Smart System project COIN, http://www.coinssf.se/, related to the topics discussed above.
