KTH Centre for Autonomous Systems announces a postdoctoral position in Robotics.

The department of the Computational Vision and Active Perception Lab (CVAP) performs research in computational vision and robotics, and was formed in 1982. CVAP has support from the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, the Swedish Research Council and a number of EU projects for a total of around 2 million Euro in annual external funding. CVAP is integrated with the Centre for Autonomous Systems (CAS), an interdisciplinary centre for research on robotics with a focus on different aspects of service robotics and with an excellent record in mobile robotics, manipulation and grasping and human-robot collaboration.

The postdoctoral position will be associated with a EU project called STRANDS which start April 1, 2013. To quote the STRANDS project abstract, “STRANDS aims to enable a robot to achieve robust and intelligent behaviour in human environments through adaptation to, and the exploitation of, long-term experience. Our approach is based on understanding 3D space and how it changes over time, from milliseconds to months.” The applicant is expected to perform full time research in the associated project including supervision of PhD students.
