King's College London is now inviting applications for a postdoctoral
research position in the Department of Informatics at King's College London.
The position is available for start in February 2017.
The successful candidate will undertake research into imitation
learning/programming by demonstration for compliant/soft robot control,
inspired by biological models of impedance control. It will examine the
ways in which ordinary users interact with these systems, and are able
to manipulate them to perform tasks, feeding back to inform the
usability of PbD for untrained users.
The project will involve considerable interaction with industry, and
part of the role will be to liaise with commercial partners and develop
The successful candidate will hold a PhD in a relevant subject
(informatics, machine learning, robotics, mechanical or electrical
engineering) and demonstrate excellent skills in the design and testing
of statistical machine learning algorithms. Experience in mechatronic
engineering, human movement science, or compliant robotic technologies
are a plus.
She/he must be highly motivated and must have:
- A track record of publishing in high quality conferences and journals.
- Excellent communication skills in English (both writing and speaking).
- A good attitude towards team working in an international environment.
