Aldebaran Robotics, the company that commercializes the Nao robot, is
launching the A-Lab, a fundamental and applied research unit dedicated
to advances in five keys domains: Artificial Intelligence, Mechatronics,
Dynamic Control, Interaction, Systems.
We are now recruiting young PhDs and senior researchers for permanent
positions in Paris covering the following areas of expertize:
* Developmental Robotics: sensorimotor grounding and language
acquisition (lexicon, grammar, compositional actions).
Keywords: developmental, embodiment, grounding, language games,
imitation, intrinsic motivation, learning, categorization, joint
attention, social robotics.
* Interaction: audio and video signal processing and dialog management
in interactive robots. Machine learning, new sensor integration methods.
Keywords: gesture recognition, emotions, voice modulation, world
representation, dialog engine, task learning, sound optimization, image
segmentation, sensor modeling.
* Mechatronics: design of new actuators, sensors and smart dynamical
Keywords: actuators, sensors, dynamic structures, 3D sensors, thermic
* Dynamics: intelligent and advanced body control in key dynamics areas:
walking and navigation, grasping and postures.
Keywords: walk, VSLAM, navigation, grasping, procedural motion.
* Systems: system design and integration, new languages for robotics,
Keywords: software safety, programming languages, URBI/urbiscript,
architecture and middleware.
Candidates working on mechatronics, interaction, dynamics and systems
will be involved in applied research for the development of key
technologies directly integrated in the Aldebaran Robotics product line.
They will work in tight collaboration with the production teams.
The Artificial Intelligence group (AI Lab), working on developmental
robotics, is a more fundamental research group with long term goals in
the continuity of academics research labs. Its goal is to make progress
in the understanding and modeling of the mechanisms of development and
learning in embodied intelligent robots.
All candidates will be involved in collaborative projects, and will
contribute to research valorization in the context of joint labs,
partnerships and commercial applications.
Positions : 18 open positions in the above domains
Location : Paris in Aldebaran Robotics headquarters
Profile : PhD, computer science background (good level in
C++/python), excellent level in English, strong
vision, references & publications requested.
Please send applications to a-lab at aldebaran-robotics.com with the
* Resume with references
* One paragraph summary of research background
* List of published papers, currently submitted papers and patents
* Media and dissemination references if available
* Date of availability
