Opening for PhD Students in Artificial Intelligence at UCSD
Applications are invited for PhD student positions in Professor Xiaolong Wang's group (Group Page) at UC San Diego. Students with experience in the following topics are encrouaged to apply:
Computer Vision: Video understanding, 3D vision, vision-language foundation models, self-supervised learning, implicit functions, generative model.
Reinforcement Learning: Model-based RL, Imitation learning, Visual represetation learning for RL.
Robotics: Manipulation and dexterous manipulation, locomotion control, hardware design. Students who have experience with real robots are preferred.
Xiaolong is interested in the intersection between computer vision and robotics. His aim for research is to build an AI system that can scale up its learning ability beyond high-cost supervision, acquire common sense knowledge, and interact with the world using the knowledge it has learned. Importantly, more knowledge can be acquired throughout the interaction.
If you are interested in applying, you can apply to UCSD ECE department or CSE department and select or fill my name in the application system. You can also state your interested in my group in your statement of purpose. For any further questions, you can email me: email@example.com .
If you are applying the ECE department, I will be reviewing from the following 2 tracks and you can apply one of them:
Signal and Image Processing (SIP).
Intelligent Systems, Robotics, and Control (ISRC).
