Junior research opening at USC/ICT


Junior research opening at USC/ICT

We are looking to hire a junior researcher to focus on cognitive
architecture research within the context of our virtual human research
efforts.  The position would have primary responsibility over
envisioning the next-generation of cognitive architecture that would
support real-time multi-modal interactions with human users within
emotionally-evocative virtual simulations.  The candidate is expected
to collaborate closely with a multi-disciplinary research team
including research in emotion modeling, natural language processing,
and nonverbal behavior recognition and synthesis.  Below are listed
some research publications upon which the research is expected to
build.  Interested candidates should send a vita to me at
Gratch@Ict.usc.edu
