POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN SYNERGISTIC INTELLIGENCE

Asada Synergistic Intelligence Project,
Japan Science and Technology Agency, Osaka,
Japan

The Asada Synergistic Intelligence Project invites applications for
postdoctoral positions to conduct research in synergistic intelligence
aimed at understanding cognitive developmental natural agents (humans),
building artificial agents (humanoids), and their mutual feedback.  The
project consists of four groups: (1) Physio-SE: dynamic motions such as
walking, running, jumping, and their seamless connection utilizing
pneumatic muscle actuators, (2) Perso-SE: cognitive developmental
robotics including body image, imitation, and language communication. 
(3) Socio-SE: emergence of communication and society by androids, and 
(4) SI-mechanism: neuroscientific support for Physio, Perso, and
Socio-SIs.

The successful candidates will join the project which studies robotics,
AI, computational neuroscience, dynamical systems, brain science,
cognitive neuroscience, developmental psychology, and related fields. 
Required qualifications are, a PhD in a related field with strong
research accomplishments in robotics, control engineering, computer
science, brain science, cognitive science, psychology, dynamical systems
theory, and other related fields. The appointments are initially for one
year with the possibility of renewal to the end of the project in
October 2010. The review of applications will begin as they are received,
and will continue until suitable candidates are found.  Applicants
should send CV, list of publications, reprints of three representative
papers, descriptions of research accomplishments and research interests,
and contact addresses of three references to Prof. Minoru Asada,
Adaptive Machine Systems, Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka
University, Suita, Osaka 565-0871, Japan or e-mail to
