[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] 2 Post-doc positions: Robotics / Legged Locomotion / Autonomous Cars / Machine Learning

Jean-Baptiste Mouret-2
2 Post-doc positions: Robotics / Legged locomotion / Machine Learning /
Autonomous cars (2nd call)
Inria is looking for two postdoctoral researchers for the following

1 - Legged locomotion, optimal control & data-efficient learning [

'ResiBots'] - the objective is to 'bridge the gap' between whole-body
control and machine learning. Keywords: whole body control; Bayesian
optimization; quadratic programming; legged locomotion.

2 - Learning adaptive reflexes for autonomous cars [

international project] - the goal is to develop new approaches for
long-term autonomy (applied to cars). Keywords: Bayesian optimization,
quality diversity, synaptic plasticity, neuro-evolution.

Please apply online (e-mail applications will not be considered) to the
position(s) that interest you.

A successful post-doc applicant should have a strong robotics, evolutionary
computation and/or machine learning background with a track record of
top-tier research publications in robotics, machine learning, or
evolutionary computation. Typical relevant conferences are ICRA, IROS,RSS,
ICML, IJCAI, AAAI, GECCO, and CEC;  for journals:, AURO, TRo, IJRR, JMLR,
MLJ, Neural Computation, RAS, RAL, ECJ, TEC,  .

Applicants will be asked to provide:
- a research statement / cover letter;
- a detailed CV;
- the top 3 publications.

Please ensure to include a link to your research website as well as your
date of availability. There is no fixed deadline: the positions will be
filled as soon as possible.

Our research group is at the intersection of machine learning, robotics,
and evolutionary computation. We are currently mainly focused on
data-efficient reinforcement learning (micro-data learning) for adaptation
in robotics (e.g., adapt to damage). There are currently 2 post-docs, 3 PhD
students, 3 engineers + 1 PI.

For a few examples of recent work, please see https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.resibots.eu&d=DwIBaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=hZfec-kt4of-aEj44aHoGzgOOyBqn4Dx0WVcrOVr1Eo&s=yrM5za9z8V-vViLb4bkejvZYMMWfnBPjK02Di0mXdy4&e= and

ABOUT INRIA (Nancy - Grand Est)
Inria is a French national research institution that focuses on computer
science and applied mathematics. Inria employs about 600 permanent
researchers, 1000 engineers/technicians, 600 Ph.D. students, and 200
post-docs. Inria Nancy - Grand-Est centre is one of the eight research
centres; it is situated near Nancy, a 1-million inhabitants (with a lot of
students) in the East of France (1.5 hours from Paris by fast train).

Inria can provide some help for housing and visa applications (scientific
resident card and help for husband/wife).
