Getting involved with indylab

Thanks for your interest in our lab! We’re currently looking for postdocs, grads, and undergrads to join us in exciting research. Please see below for the preferred way to contact us. Sorry if we’re unable to respond to other methods of communication.

Diversity and inclusion: We support inclusive excellence, which means that we encourage you to apply regardless of how you identify, and particularly if you identify as a member of an underrepresented group. We believe that diversity makes for better research and a better society.

Postdoctoral researchers

We’re hiring postdocs in reinforcement learning and robotics. The position provides opportunities for independent and collaborative research in either: (1) development of new theoretical and algorithmic approaches to control learning, in particular optimization for reinforcement learning, inference of structured control, multi-agent systems, and optimal exploration; or (2) development of new practical methods and systems for robot learning, in particular leveraging structured control and multi-task learning. You’re welcome to contact Prof. Fox by email.

Doctoral students

We’re admitting new fully-funded PhD students every year. The application process is managed by the UCI Computer Science Department. You’re welcome to mention Prof. Fox as a potential advisor in your application, but contacting Prof. Fox is not at all needed. Due to the large number of candidates, we’re unable to respond to emails enquiring about applications.

Master’s and undergraduate students

We’re recruiting UCI Master’s and undergraduate students who wish to get involved in our lab’s research activity and gain experience. If you’re passionate about the kind of research we do, and can commit to work on research for at least 15 hours per week for 2 quarters, you’re welcome to fill out this form. If you’ve recently joined UCI (welcome!), please also upload your transcript from your previous institute, if any. Prior coursework in AI/ML is required, and prior experience is preferred. We can only consider students who are already admitted at UCI.

Short-term visitors

If you’re interested in visiting the lab for a short term to work on research with us, and can commit to at least 2 quarters, please contact Prof. Fox by email. At this time we cannot accommodate shorter visits, including summer internships.
