Internships

PhD Students

Occasionally, I may be able to offer visiting positions to external PhD students who wish to spend up to a year working with me and my group. This will only be available to students who can demonstrate significant experience in robotics and computer vision (ideally in robot manipulation), and candidates will only be considered if they have already published a first-authored paper in a top conference (ICRA, IROS, CoRL, RSS, ICCV, CVPR, ECCV, NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR).  Funding for living expenses would need to be provided by the student or their home institution. To apply, please contact me at e.johns@imperial.ac.uk with your CV, degree transcripts, and a summary of your research interests. So that I know you have read this webpage, please use "InternApp2020 Xyz Xyz" for the email's subject line, where "Xyz Xyz" is your name.

Masters Students

I do occasionally offer visiting positions to external Masters students, who wish to do their thesis in my lab. However, this is typically only under special circumstances, such as: (i) where the student can already demonstrate research experience in robotics (usually due to independent research outside of their degree), (ii) where the student has exceptional grades, or (iii) where the student is already applying for a PhD position at Imperial College. If you think that you fit these criteria, please contact me at e.johns@imperial.ac.uk with your CV, degree transcripts, and a summary of your research interests.

Undergraduate Students

I do not offer any internships, or UROPs, to undergraduate students, and I'm sorry but I cannot always reply to these requests.
