School of Computing, University of Leeds

Postdoctoral research position (fixed-term, 36 months)

We are seeking to appoint an ambitious researcher to join an interdisciplinary research project involving several European partners.  The project is to develop novel methods for learning patterns of human sensory-motor activity within tasks involving hand manipulation of objects and tools. It is expected these methods will involve the integration of qualitative reasoning and stochastic process models.

You will have a PhD (or to obtain soon) in computer science, artificial intelligence or a related discipline and research experience in machine learning, or knowledge representation and reasoning, obtained during PhD study, postdoctoral research or from working in industry.
