Wallenberg Autonomous Systems Program (WASP) offers 26 PhD student positions in Sweden


Wallenberg Autonomous Systems Program (WASP) is Sweden’s largest

individual research program ever, and provides a platform for academic
research and education, fostering interaction with Sweden’s leading
technology companies. The program addresses research on autonomous
systems acting in collaboration with humans, adapting to their
environment through sensors, information and knowledge, and forming
intelligent systems of systems. Software is the main enabler in
autonomous systems, and is an integrated research theme of the
program.

The graduate within WASP is dedicated to providing the skills needed
to analyze, develop and contribute to the interdisciplinary area of
autonomous systems and software. Through an ambitious program the
graduate school actively supports forming a strong multi-disciplinary
and international professional network between PhD students,
researchers and industry.

The graduate school provides unique opportunities for students who are
dedicated to achieving international research excellence with
industrial relevance.

We are now offering up to 26 PhD student positions at the coordinating
universities Chalmers University of Technology, Linköping University,
Lund University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Umeå
University.

The open positions include areas such as software engineering,
verification, autonomous vehicles, localization, human-robot/computer
interaction, automated transport systems, scalable optimization and
control, cloud resource management and control, perception, visual
tracking, motion control, cognitive companions, languages for software
architectures, link modeling, and semantic structure from motion.
