We are hiring in the context of Behaviors.ai
Project, a 12 months Post Doc in Social Robotics.
The Behaviors.ai (Behaviors.ai is an Engine enHancing verbAl and nonVerbal InteractiOns of RobotS, based on Artificial Intelligence) joint laboratory will develop a smart interaction engine to provide more empathic, intuitive and natural human-robot interactions. This project gathers skills from LIRIS researchers in Artificial Intelligence and from Hoomano, a specialized firm in software development for social robots. Behaviors.ai targets to transfer fundamental research results, especially in developmental learning, to mass-market applications in robots (see Behaviors.ai website for more details).
In the context of this project we are looking for a Post Doc candidate with a strong background in Social Robotics, Human-Robot Interaction, and with good skills in Artificial Intelligence in general and Machine Learning in particular.
The targeted mission for this Post Doc is the achievement of Research & Development activity with the team in place, to develop intelligent Human-Robot Interaction, using Machine Learning technics and in particular, exploring the new approach for unsupervised learning based on constructivist Learning / developmental Learning.
The candidate for this position should be able to work both autonomously and in cooperation with the project team (1 PhD, 3 engineers, 1 associate professor, 1 professor on the academic side, the Chief Scientific Officer and some engineers on the Hoomano side) on the research issues identified by the Project Team. The Post doc also contributes to the daily work in the project (interaction with the Software Development Team, Supervision of internships, scientific publication writing, State of the art study, etc.)
The position is for 12 months, the starting date is ASAP (Note: 3 months are required by the administration for hiring after the application acceptation). It will be located in LIRIS laboratory in Lyon (with regular missions to Hoomano offices in Lyon).
