The research group in Intelligent and Interactive Systems
(https://iis.uibk.ac.at/) has multiple openings at the doctoral and
post-doctoral levels:

- Research positions funded by several EU-FP7-ICT "Cognitive Systems,
  Interaction and Robotics" projects

- Non-permanent university research staff positions with minor teaching

For both types of positions, we seek highly-qualified postdoctoral
researchers and talented doctoral students with interest and skills in
at least one of the following areas:

* Robotics:
  - grasping and manipulation using one or two dextrous hands
  - tactile sensing for grasping and manipulation
  - affordance learning: grasping, rolling, pushing, ...
  - object placement: stacking, dropping, leaning, ...
* Computer Vision:
  - object modeling, recognition and pose tracking using stereo vision
    and/or point clouds
  - learning action-relevant features; affordance-driven categorization
  - human modeling and tracking: hands, face, gaze, markerless human
    motion capture
  - action recognition

All activities involve probabilistic modeling, machine learning, and a
strong component of human-robot interaction.

Postdoctoral researchers are expected to assume active roles in project
leadership and supervision of junior researchers.

Salaries are internationally competitive and commensurate with
qualification and experience.

The University of Innsbruck, Austria
