The IT University of Copenhagen (www.itu.dk), Denmark, invites applications for a PhD student position (fully funded) and a  full-time postdoctoral research position. The start date for both is the 1st of Feb 2014.

Research Area
The candidates will perform research in the context of the EVOBLISS project, which is an E.U. funded project, whose goal it is to use robots, in the form of 3d-printers modified for liquid handling, to evolve artificial chemical systems and microbial systems for energy production and waste water cleaning. The successful candidates (a postdoc and a ph.d. student) will be hired together and work jointly to develop the liquid handling robot in cooperation with an international consortium managed by the IT University of Copenhagen. Beyond this responsibility the successful candidate is encouraged to participate in interdisciplinary research with chemists and microbiologists to develop tools and technologies that may become the foundation for new applications of artificial life. 

The candidate  should be able to document experience in at least 2 of the following areas: 
	• robot mechatronics, 
	• open-source 3d printers,  
	• liquid handling, 
	• low-level robot control, 
	• computer vision, 
	• human-computer interaction 

The candidate should have a keen interest in artificial life. Creative thinking, excellent problem solving skills, and good communication abilities in English are must-haves.

General information
