Dear colleagues,

I have two new research positions open in the Personal Robotics lab at Imperial College London - candidates with excellent mathematical and computational background are encouraged to apply.

A researcher position at the postdoctoral or PhD level is available through a EU Horizon 2020 grant application, PAL (Personal Assistant for Healthy Lifestyle, March 2015 - 2019), where we are looking into machine learning algorithms for advanced user modelling in order to personalise the assistance that a personal robot (and/or a avatar on mobile devices) can provide to children with diabetes. The position is open for 2.5 years.

An additional researcher position at the postdoctoral or PhD level is available through a  MURI (Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative) grant with USA partners at USC, Harvard, UC Berkeley, CSHL, NYU, and UK partners at UCL and U Essex. The grant is on “Closed-Loop Multisensory Brain-Computer Interface for Enhanced Decision Accuracy”, and our role at Imperial is on attentional modelling for enhanced decision support and closed loop BCI for car shared-autonomy scenarios. It is scheduled to start in November 2016, and it is for 3+2 years. 

For all positions, please see details and job/person specifications at:
