Takashi Tanaka


Ph.D. positions available

We accept Ph.D. students in the area of control, autonomy and robotics. The research encompasses topics of perception-based path planning, multi-agent reinforcement learning, and networked control systems. The research tasks will put more emphasis on the fundamental theoretical developments rather than on software/hardware implementations. The positions will be appointed as Graduate Research Assistants (GRA), Teaching Assistants (TA), or a combination of both, which will include a stipend and a full tuition coverage.

Qualifications: The applicant must also have good communication skills (written and oral) as well as proficiency in mathematical arguments and proofs. Students with background in optimization, robotics, and control theory are encouraged to apply.

How to apply: All applications must be made through the Cockrell School of Engineering’s admission process. Applicants should express their intentions to work with us in the Statement of Purpose essays.
