Postdoctoral Positions at Imperial College London in Bioinspired Social Learning Mechanisms for Human Robot Interaction

http://www.iis.ee.ic.ac.uk/yiannis/webcontent/EFAAPostdoctoralPositions/Welcome.html
Contact:

Two postdoctoral positions are immediately available at Imperial's Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, to work on bionspired social learning algorithms for  human-robot interaction. You will be working in a new EU FP7 STREP project, EFAA, to develop bioinspired algorithms for enabling humanoid robots to learn transferable sensorimotor and cognitive skills through multimodal interaction with human users in the context of tabletop games. Experience with modelling biological learning processes (particularly in the context of social cognitive neuroscience), for example using neural networks or bayesian models, and/or programming and control of complex humanoid robots (e.g. the icub) would be beneficial.

The positions offer an exciting research topic and an excellent working environment in one of the world's top research universities; the positions are for the project's duration of 3 years.

More information (and links to the application website) at:

Deadline for receipt of applications is  the 16th of January 2011, but candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
