Visiting Researchers
underline

Occasionally JPL Robotics hosts visiting researchers who come to our institution to work with us. Stays can extend from a few months for the summer, to multiple years for fellowships. Typically funding for these researchers is obtained by them from sponsoring agencies or their home institutions. If you are a researcher in robotics with funding for a period away, please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
