[robotics-worldwide] Positions in Social Signal Processing and Social Robotics at UPMC-ISIR CNRS UMR 7222 (Paris)

Mohamed Chetouani
The ISIR lab (Institut des Systèmes Intelligents et de Robotique,  
Paris) is opening 3 positions in social signal processing and social  
robotics:

- Post-doctoral researcher in the area of social signal processing and/
or social robotics. This is an initial 12 month appointment fully  
funded by the EU project MICHELANGELO " Patient-centric model for remote
management, treatment and rehabilitation of autistic children".

Project description: The work involves various aspects of social  
interactions: engagement, interactional synchrony, verbal and non  
verbal communication as well as emotions. The main outcomes of the  
project are the development of pervasive systems combined with  
robotics based solutions for behavior profiling and new strategies of  
neuro/bio feedbacks therapies applied to autism.

Requirements: We are looking for motivated candidates with a strong  
background in the areas of machine learning, pattern recognition,  
social robotics. Hands-on skill in the area of robotics or pervasive  
systems is desirable. The
candidates are also expected to have good programming skills in C/C++.

- Human-Computer Interaction Engineer in the are of signal and image  
processing, pattern recognition applied to human- computer/robot  
interaction. Research and conception in the field of socially  
interactive systems. Integration of advanced solutions into various  
contexts (e.g. computers, mobile platforms), and execution of studies.  
This is an initial 12 month appointment fully funded by a national  
project for the development of integrated solutions for assistive  
applications.
Requirements: Masters degree in informatics, image/signal processing  
or related fields. Knowledge in the development of interactive  
applications. Programming skills (e.g. Java, C++). Experience in the  
domains of robotics. Interest in interdisciplinary scientific  
research. Experience in research projects advantageous.


- PhD student in the area of machine learning for social interaction.  
This is a fully funded position for 36 months by EU and national  
projects on social signal processing for robotics. A key challenge is  
to develop machine sensing and understanding of impaired social  
behavior techniques. The UMPC-ISIR lab is involved in several projects  
related to autism, mild cognitive impairments as well as Alzheimer.  
The successful candidates will join the multi-disciplinary  research  
group on social interaction at the UPMC-ISIR.
Suitable candidates will have a background in a computing related  
discipline (pattern recognition, signal processing, machine learning)  
including experience in programming, ideally with an interest in one  
or more areas of psycho-pathology.



Interested candidates you should email Mohamed CHETOUANI:
  i) a detailed CV,ii) a transcript of your grades, iii) copies of  
your best publications (if relevant for the position), and iv) the  
names and contact data of three academic references.
Selection of potential candidates will begin immediately.

Deadline for applications: ** June 20th, 2011 **.

Starting Date: between September and December 2011
