The School of Information:  Science, Technology and Arts (SISTA) at
the University of Arizona seeks two postdoctoral researchers to work on
several projects in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, machine
learning, computer vision, robotics, and other closely related areas under
the direction of Professors Kobus Barnard, Carole Beal, Paul Cohen, Ian
Fasel, and Clay Morrison. Ideal candidates will have experience in one or
more of the following:

- Cognitive semantics or similar approaches to language semantics
- Scene and/or object understanding
- Human activity understanding
- Multi-modal inference (combining image, video, text, audio, etc.)
- Reinforcement learning and learning from demonstration
- Bayesian modeling and inference
- Machine learning, optimization, and statistical methods
- Real-time object localization and/or tracking
- Cognitive and/or developmental robotics
- Human-robot interaction
- Human pose estimation and/or tracking

Postdocs are encouraged to work on both their primary project and
other projects in the UofA and global community through collaborations
and participation in professional services and activities.  The length
of the appointment is expected to be two years, with possibility of
renewal.  Applications will be considered until the position is
filled. Candidates are expected to have (or be about to defend) a PhD
in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Cognitive Science, or
related areas, with demonstrated experience and publications in the
main conferences and journals in their field.

To apply, please send your curriculum vitae, including the names and
email addresses of three references to ljacobo @ email.arizona.edu.
If possible please attach up to three representative publications
(unpublished manuscripts such as soon-to-be-defended Ph.D. theses are
welcome). The University of Arizona is an extraordinarily
collaborative place, especially for work in cognitive science. We all
work with faculty in several other departments. Tucson is a beautiful
environment for both scholarship and sport, and the sun shines almost
every day.
