_Postdoctoral Position, EPFL, Switzerland_

The Learning Algorithms and Systems Laboratory (LASA) at EPFL is seeking 
two postdoctoral fellows to participate in  research projects that 
develop novel approaches from machine learning to enable dexterous and 
highly adaptive manipulation. The postdoctoral fellows will work 
together with other researchers in the lab to port the algorithms for 
manipulating objects with two hands while navigating. Two platforms of 
choice will be considered: a humanoid robot with high degrees of freedom 
hands and wheel-based platforms mounted with manipulators.

For more information on the lab, see https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__lasa.epfl.ch&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=XrGYZphQR8Jpuon3KtKYNLKluFHLdhrTTCcn9lRiu9M&s=bjWhISC5hkDEA4KIzlb-ayNAHH_sVFkSnCcY477bdak&e=

This is a one-year position, renewable on a yearly basis for up to three 
years. The position will be filled as soon as possible with a starting 
date in late spring / summer 2018.

The applicant should hold a PhD in robotics with a strong background on 
machine learning.

Applicants should send a brief letter of motivation, an up to date CV 
and copies of two most relevant publications to aude.billard at epfl.ch
