The ISIR robotics laboratory at Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC, 
Paris, France) is looking for a postdoctoral candidate to perform 
contract-based research in the field of robot learning and whole body 
control on an iCub humanoid robot.

Given the constraints of the funding projects, the ideal candidate would:
- have some research background in machine learning,
- have some research background in robotics control and whole body motion,
- have some research experience on the iCub,
- have excellent C++ programming skills,
- have excellent collaborative capabilities,
- have good software engineering capabilities,
- be available immediately.

Candidates that only partially match this list of requirements will 
nevertheless be considered.

The contract duration may vary from six months to four years and will be 
the matter of discussion with the candidates.

To apply, please contact Olivier Sigaud and Vincent Padois 
(firstname_dot_name_at_upmc_dot_fr) with your cv and a letter including 
references, a brief introduction of your research background and plans.
