PhD position available for proactive human-robot interaction, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark
The Embodied AI and Neurorobotics invites, part of Centre for BioRobotics (CBR) at the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Institute at the University of Southern Denmark, is offering:
One PhD positions starting from September 1, 2017. Applications are invited from candidates with a master's degree.
The candidate will focus on developing embodied neural mechanisms for multi-sensory integration, proactive robot control, and action sequence learning for proactive human-robot interaction in Welfare domain. The candidate will also be part of our project Health-CAT: "Health Care Assisting Technology" recently funded by the Interreg program. A part of the project aims to develop high-level (neural) control of a mobile service robot to efficiently assist and interact with people/nurses in hospital environments.
The successful candidate will be expected to have an academic university degree in the field of artificial intelligence, computer science, control system engineering, robotics, or a quantitative field.
A background in multi-sensory integration, machine learning, dynamic neural fields, complex signal processing, hardware implementation, and robotics as well as good programming skills (e.g., ROS, C, C++, MatLab, Java) are desirable.
Please refer to the official advert  for application details and guideline. The deadline for applications via the online system  is 30/07/2017.
