Post-Doctoral Grant in Active Cooperative Perception and Human-Robot Interaction in Indoor Networked Robot Systems

The EU project, coordinated by IST-ID, MOnarCH ("Multi-Robot Cognitive Systems Operating in Hospitals" - http://monarch-fp7.eu) has currently available 1 (one) position for a Post-Doctoral Research Grant in Electrical and Computer Engineering. We seek highly motivated researchers to integrate the project team, at the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR), a unit of the Laboratory of Robotics and Systems in Engineering  and Science (LARSyS) located at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), U. Lisbon, Portugal.

The successful candidate will focus his/her work in designing and coordinating the implementation of the i) planning of specific movements for the perceptual robots of the MOnarCH project, that will ensure the provision of more accurate information by the networked robot system, and ii) extension of the planning methods based on constraint satisfaction with the integration of institutions, guaranteeing observance of social norms in the interaction between humans and the networked robot system.

The grant has the duration of 12 months. It is expected to start on February 2015 and will include accident insurance and social security contributions.

The successful candidate is expected to have a PhD in Electrical Engineering or related field, if possible with previous experience in one or more of the above topics.

The grantee will work with the Intelligent Robots and Systems group at LARSyS (http://welcome.isr.ist.utl.pt/labs/irsgroup/), and will also have the opportunity to work in close collaboration with all the other partners of both projects.

Applications will be considered until 30 November, 2014.

Applications should be sent to  info at monarch-fp7.eu and should include:

* a detailed CV, including a list of publications, 

* a brief statement about research interests, engineering skills and past experience, and motivation to join the project, and 

* the name and contact of 2 referees.
