Control Theory, Robotics, and Learning


The CTRL(Control Theory, Robotics, and Learning) is a research group of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), Pohang, Republic of Korea. The focus of the laboratory is to develop mathematical control theories and their applications to practical control systems such as robotics, aerospace vehicles, cyber-physical systems, and so on.


Open Positions

We are continuously looking for self-motivated and outstanding students who are interested in the general areas of control systems. We especially welcome students who are good at mathematics (e.g., linear algebra, functional analysis, etc.) or programming skills (e.g., C, C++, MATLAB, Python, etc.). If you are interested in joining the Control Theory, Robotics, and Learning, please email here (ctrlpostech@gmail.com ) with an one-page resume. 

We encourage those who aspire to pursue research in our lab to apply for the integrated MS and Ph. D.
