The research group in Intelligent and Interactive Systems
(https://iis.uibk.ac.at/) has multiple openings at the doctoral and
post-doctoral levels:

- Research positions funded by the EU-FP7-ICT "Cognitive Systems,
  Interaction and Robotics" projects Xperience (http://www.xperience.org/),
  IntellAct (http://www.intellact.eu/) and PaCMan (forthcoming)

- Non-permanent university research staff positions with minor
  teaching requirements

For both types of positions, we seek candiates with interest and
skills in at least one of the following areas:

* Robotics:
  - grasping and manipulation using one or two dextrous hands
  - tactile sensing for grasping and manipulation
  - generalization of manipulation skills based on object parts and shapes
  - extraction of generic knowledge from sensorimotor experience
* Computer Vision:
  - object modeling, recognition and pose estimation using stereo vision
    and/or point clouds
  - compositional, hierarchical, part-based object modeling
  - learning action-relevant features; affordance-driven categorization

In addition, all positions involve probabilistic modeling and machine
learning.

Innsbruck is home to 35000 students who imprint a distinctive,
international student atmosphere upon this lively city of
120000. Beautifully located in the Tyrolean Alps, on the Inn river and
surrounded by summits of up to 2718m, Innsbruck offers outstanding
opportunities and quality of life all around the year.
