RPL Research Engineer Fellowships

The Division of Robotics, Perception and Learning (RPL) at KTH is looking for students interested in getting hands-on research experience in several areas applicable to Robotics, Control, Computer Vision and Machine Learning.

The position is not targeted at a specific area or project; instead, we are looking for candidates who show significant potential to contribute to one or more of RPL’s research groups.

Applications will be assessed on a regular basis and the fellowship program will be adjusted to each candidate’s interests and time of the year (e.g. 3 months full-time positions during summer or longer part-time positions during the academic year).

What we offer

  • In addition to a faculty advisor, each Fellow will be matched with a technically relevant researcher (e.g. PhD student or postdoc) who will serve as the student’s research collaborator and mentor.
  • An international workplace.
  • A leading technical university that creates knowledge and expertise for a sustainable future.
  • The possibility to interact with a diverse team of researchers with high ambitions in an open, curious and dynamic environment.
  • Participation in some of the group activities of the division. 



The candidate should be enrolled in a bachelor or master’s degree in computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, mathematics, robotics, computer vision, machine learning or similar.  

Preferred qualifications

  • Experience with projects (e.g. at course level) related to Robotics, Control, Computer Vision, Machine Learning or similar.

  • Excellent software development and integration skills, preferably in Python and C++/C#. 

  • Solid mathematical background.

  • Familiarity with computer vision, motion capture, robot-specific algorithms and methodologies, logics, formal methods, or machine learning algorithms and tools.

  • Excellent writing and communication skills. 

Great emphasis will be placed on personal competence and suitability.


The application must include:

• CV including relevant project experience and knowledge.

• Copy of diplomas and grades from university studies. Translations into English or Swedish if the original documents have not been issued in any of these languages.

• Brief account (maximum one page) of which RPL research area you would be interested in, and how this fellowship can contribute to your future academic career.
