post-doctoral levels in the following general area of research:

  - object grasping, manipulation and placement
  - interactive programming by demonstration / kinesthetic teaching
  - human-robot interaction and collaboration
  - prediction of action effects
  - robot skill optimization
  - probabilistic modeling and machine learning

The positions are part of multiple active and upcoming research
projects funded by the EU (FP7, Horizon 2020) and the Austrian
Research Promotion Agency (FFG), all with high-profile project

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

All candidates must have demonstrated excellence of scholarly work in
relevant fields, and must be fluent in the English language.

Salaries are internationally competitive and commensurate with
qualification and experience.

The Intelligent and Interactive Systems Group, directed by
Prof. Justus Piater, engages in research enabling autonomous robots to
perceive and act flexibly and robustly in unstructured environments,
leveraging machine learning methods to build perceptual, motor and
reasoning skills.  It has a strong track record of research in
large-scale, collaborative research projects, with uninterrupted
engagement in 2 to 5 simultaneous EU-FP7 projects since its inception
in 2010.

The University of Innsbruck was founded in 1669. It offers a complete
set of academic curricula and currently counts 28000 students. Created
in 2001, our young Department of Computer Science is highly productive
in diverse research domains, and is internationally very well

Innsbruck is home to 35000 students who imprint a distinctive,
international student atmosphere upon this lively city of
130000. Beautifully located in the Tyrolean Alps, on the Inn river and
surrounded by summits of up to 2718m, Innsbruck offers outstanding
opportunities and quality of life all around the year.
