ALIZ-E is a European funded Integrated Project to study long-term human-robot interaction. ALIZ-E: "Adaptive Strategies for Sustainable Long-Term Social Interaction". The ALIZ-E consortium consists of 7 academic partners (Plymouth as coordinator, Deutsches Forschungszentrum fr Knstliche Intelligenz, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research, Imperial College, University of Hertfordshire, National Research Council - Padova), one hospital (San Raffaele del Monte Tabor, Italy) and one SME (Gostai, Paris). ALIZ-E runs for 54 months starting on 1 March 2010.
 
You will be part of the Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems http://www.tech.plym.ac.uk/SOCCE/CRNS/ at the University of Plymouth under the supervision of Dr Tony Belpaeme and Prof Angelo Cangelosi. You will also collaborate with the other European and international partners of the ALIZ-E consortium. The CRNS is one of the top computer science research groups in the UK, with 13 academic staff, 7 Research Fellows and over 30 PhD students. 

Recruitment and selection will be based on individual merit, however, we should particularly like to encourage applications from women, black and minority ethnic people who are under-represented in the Faculty of Science and Technology.
