**Please forward this email to anyone who might be interested**

The Evolutionary Robotics group in ISIR (UPMC, Paris, France) is
seeking a post-doc fellow who will contribute to the CREADAPT project
(http://tinyurl.com/creadapt), which aims at developing innovative
algorithms to allow robots to adapt autonomously to unforeseen
situations (mechanical failures, radical changes of the ground
surface, etc.).

Potential research topics are developmental encodings for locomotion
controllers, evolution in dynamic environments and, more generally,
improving the state of the art in evolutionary robotics.

This is a 18 months, full-time position starting in September/October 2013.

*Requirements*
- Ph.D. in evolutionary computation, robotics or a related field;
- interest for experiments with real robots;
- very good C++ programming skills.

*Information for candidates* 
Please submit a resume, a cover letter and a 1-page research proposal to
mouret at isir.upmc.fr. Documents can be in French or in English. Interviews
will be held at GECCO´2013 (Amsterdam), in Paris or by video-conference.

* Workplace *
The ISIR (Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems) is one of the main
robotics departments in France. It is part of the University Pierre and
Marie Curie (UPMC), in the center of Paris, France.
