Doctoral/Post-doctoral Position in

Human-Robot Collaboration

Promoting intent and context based interaction and collaboration of humans and robots will be of high importance in the near future, when ‘things’ around us will have more intelligence.

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student or post-doctoral fellow to lead a research aimed at promoting intent and context based interaction and collaboration of humans and robots. Such interaction requires the development of novel intent based interfaces (e.g., brain computer interaction) and the generation of a shared (e.g., via augmented reality) mental model for both human and robot. It also requires investigation of how collaboration is built over time and how context may affect it. The current effort takes a multidisciplinary perspective of human-robot relations and focuses on integration of multiple paradigms.

We are looking for candidates with a strong computational background interested in setting up and leading new and exciting research directions.

Closing date for applications: 30 May 2014 or until all positions are filled.

Candidates applying by above closing date will be informed by July 2014.

Starting date: 1 October 2014 or earlier
