 A fully funded PhD/ Post Doc position in human-robot interaction starting latest by end of this year is available at the CNRS-AIST Joint Robotics Lab (JRL) Tsukuba in Japan - the PhD will be affiliated to the University of Montpellier in south of France. The study is part of an ongoing collaboration with Airbus Group. The project will aim to improve robot behavior in co-worker environments by developing robot algorithms that incorporate predictions of human behavior. The selected candidate will be required to spend part of his work period in France and part in Japan. S/he will work in collaboration with other roboticists, neuroscientists and the industrial partner to perform multi-disciplinary research in behavioral Neuroscience and Robot Control to develop novel robot algorithms that can provide faster, safer and natural interactions with humans. 
 The position is open for motivated candidates with a background and/or experience in robot control or behavioral motor neuroscience. Evidence of an ability to work in collaborative teams and good communication skills is essential. Candidates applying for a postdoc position will be expected to have had previous hands-on practical experience in programing robots and/or implementing behavioral experiments with human subjects, and research publications in international conferences/journals.  Supervision team: Dr Ganesh Gowrishankar and Dr Abderrahmane Kheddar- Interested individuals should contact Dr. Ganesh (g.ganesh at aist.go.jp) with their CV. Further project details will be made available to candidates passing initial screening.
