We have THREE postdoctoral openings in the field of Robotics and 
Animation, with an emphasis on Machine Learning techniques for adaptive 
representation, dynamic planning and motion synthesis in high 
dimensional, anthropomorphic robotic systems and articulated 
full-physics animation. We are looking for highly motivated individuals 
with a strong publication record and solid background in the 
fundamentals of machine learning, planning and control in robots and/or 
experience with physically based graphics and animation. The three posts 
are expected to work in a complementary manner towards the goals of the 
larger, multi site project: Topology based Motion Synthesis, details of 
which can be found on the application website.

Posts are tenable for a maximum of three years starting April 2011 and 
attract a salary in the UE07 pay scale: £29,972 - £35,788 commensurate 
to experience.
