ROYAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (KTH)
SCHOOL OF COMPUTER SCIENCE AND COMMUNICATION (CSC)
CENTRE FOR AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS (CAS)
Computational Vision and Active Perception Laboratory (CVAP)

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions, starting as
soon as possible after March 2008. The posts are to work on major EU
funded projects due 2012: GRASP (Emergence of Cognitive Grasping through 
Emulation, Introspection, and Surprise), and CogX (Cognitive Systems that 
Self-Understand and Self-Extend).

The first post will be concerned with sensor (visual, tactile) guided
object grasping and manipulation with specific consideration on object grasping 
and manipulation ontologies.  The second post is concerned with spatial 
modeling and navigation. The focus of the research will depend on the 
background of the candidate and personal
initaitive. The research environment will offer possibilities for a
strong international collaboration, supervision of graduate students
and teaching.

CAS performs research in (semi-) autonomous systems including mobile
robot systems for manufacturing, domestic and field applications.
Research at CVAP considers all aspects of computer vision and machine
learning.
