The Distributed Intelligent Systems and Algorithms Laboratory (DISAL, http://disal.epfl.ch) at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, is seeking for a full-time post-doctoral fellow in the area of distributed robotics.

The postdoctoral fellow will participate to the Swiss National Center of Competence in Research Robotics (NCCR Robotics), a nation-wide center gathering leading robotic experts from cutting-edge Swiss research institutions (EPFL, ETHZ, University of Zurich, IDSIA), with the common objective of developing new, human-oriented robotic technology for improving our quality of life.

The position involves the development of distributed evaluative learning algorithms (Project 4: Distributed Robotics) and the application of robotic technologies to domestic scenarios (Project 5: Robots for daily life). The ideal candidate should hold a PhD in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related area, and have both theoretical and practical experience with Machine Learning techniques for controller design applied to robotic platforms.

The position is open with immediate effect. Applicants should send a full CV including a publications list and a motivation letter to Prof. Alcherio Martinoli (alcherio.martinoli at epfl.ch). Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis as they are received and will be considered until the position is filled.
