A PhD Position is available in the Robotics and Intelligent Systems group at
the University of Oslo, Norway
(http://www.mn.uio.no/ifi/english/research/groups/robin). 

The goal of the project is prototyping autonomous robots and demonstrate
synchronized behavior with other robots or humans. Biologically inspired
algorithms are relevant for automatically defining the architecture of a
robot as well as the control scheme. Further, simulation of such systems and
shrinking the reality gap to how the robots behave in the real environment
is important. 

This work is a part of the interdisciplinary collaboration with Dept. of
Musicology and Dept. of Psychology at the University of Oslo through the
fourMs initiative (www.fourms.uio.no). We are here interested in studying
human and robotic motion using motion capture analysis and apply this
knowledge in designing adaptive robotic or computing systems. 

Qualifications: Master’s degree or equivalent in computer science with
experience in bio-inspired techniques. In particular, experience with
evolutionary algorithms or similar approaches would be beneficial. Moreover,
knowledge in the fields of robotics, rapid prototyping, simulation,
reconfigurable logic, music technology, computer graphics/CAD, and
electronics would be an advantage. The candidate should have experience with
practical work as we expect the project to result in robotic prototypes. 

Pay grade: NOK 421 000 - 473 0000 per year, approx.: $69,000 - 77,600 /
€50,100 - 56,300 (depending on qualifications and seniority)

Closing date for applications: 20th April, 2014
