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.
