PhD student position in augmented reality applied to educational robotics

The MOBOTS group, headed by Prof. Francesco Mondada, at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne is looking for a PhD student working on the integration of augmented reality in educational robotics. The project aims at studying the potential and limitations of this approach, based on preliminary work done at MOBOTS and an existing robotic platform. The study includes the design of new learning environments based on the mentioned techniques, the deployment of analytics tools and the validation in classes.

Candidates should preferably have a Master in one of the following disciplines:
- Computer science
- Computer vision
- Robotics

Candidates with a different background can apply if they can show an expertise in the field of the project.

Proficiency in English and excellent programming skills are mandatory. Because of field tests in local schools, proficiency in French and background in educational sciences is an advantage.

The application should include a letter of motivation, a CV, studies certificates and a couple of references.
Please send the applications to Francesco Mondada <francesco.mondada@epfl.ch>
Deadline for sending applications: July 1st, 2016.
