The Social Robotics Lab at Yale University is searching for a
postdoctoralresearcher to contribute to a funded NSF Expedition on
Socially Assistive
Robotics.  Our mission is to develop the computational techniques that will
enable the design, implementation, and evaluation of robots that encourage
social, emotional, and cognitive growth in children, including those with
social or cognitive deficits.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in robotics, computer science, mechanical
engineering, or a relevant related field and must be available to start
work no later than September 1st.  Candidates must have a record of work in
human-robot interaction or assistive robotics, excellent management and
writing skills, and the ability to work effectively with researchers at
other sites.

The duration of the position is one year, with the possibility of renewal
for a second year.  Compensation will be commensurate with experience.

Applicants should send a CV and copies of two relevant publications to
Larissa Hall (larissa.hall at yale.edu) before April 20.
