School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at KTH

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 Division of Decision and Control Systems at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of KTH conducts research in networked control systems, robotics, control of communication systems, systems biology and system identification. Much of the research is conducted within EU projects The group has also strong financial support from the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, the Knut och Alice Wallenberg Foundation and the Swedish Research Council.

Job description

We are recruiting one Postdoc position in the general field of hybrid control for robotic systems. The successful candidate will join a research group that is focusing on new control design methodologies for hybrid systems combining tools from control theory and formal verification methodologies from computer science. The position is 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.

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.

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 with the SSF Smart System project COIN, the ERC Consolidator Grant LEAFHOUND and the EU project CANOPIES related to the topics discussed above.

What we offer

  • A position at a leading technical university that generates knowledge and skills for a sustainable future
  • Engaged and ambitious colleagues along with a creative, international and dynamic working environment
  • Works in Stockholm, in close proximity to nature
  • Help to relocate and be settled in Sweden and at KTH
