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. WASP's key values are research excellence and industrial relevance.

The graduate school within WASP is dedicated to provide the skills needed to analyze, develop, and contribute to the interdisciplinary area of autonomous systems and software. The curriculum provides the foundations, perspectives, and state-of-the-art knowledge in the different disciplines taught by leading researchers in the field. Through an ambitious program with research visits, partner universities, and visiting lecturers, the graduate school actively supports forming a strong multi-disciplinary and international professional network between PhD-students, researchers and industry.

The graduate school provides added value on top of the existing PhD programs at the partner universities, providing unique opportunities for students who are dedicated to achieving international research excellence with industrial relevance.

WASP is now (October 30) offering up to 26 graduate positions at the five partner universities: Linköping University, Lund University, Chalmers, KTH, and Umeå University. 

The six postions at KTH Royal Institute of Technology are presented briefly below. For general questions concerning the WASP positions at KTH please contact Prof.  Bo Wahlberg or Prof. Patric Jensfelt . For general questions concerning WASP and its graduate school please contact the Director of WASP Graduate School Fredrik Heintz
