[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Postdoc position on "Task planning and learning for robotized recycling tasks" at IRI, CSIC-UPC, Spain


_Application Deadline: 15/07/2018_

IRI, CSIC-UPC in Barcelona, Spain, is seeking a highly motivated
applicant with a keen interest in doing research in automated planning
and cognitive science applied to real robotic problems.
The postdoc will be supervised by Dr. Guillem Alenyà and Prof. Carme

The Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial (IRI),is a Joint
University Research Institute participated by the Spanish National
Research Council (CSIC) and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC)
that conducts research in human-centered robotics and automatic control.
The institute, is a key player in the Spanish robotics and automatic
control scenes, and a valued participant in a large number of
international collaborations including more than ten ongoing H2020
projects and an ERC Advanced Grant. Recently, it has been recognized as
a Maria de Maeztu Excellence Unit, the main accreditation given by the
Spanish Government to research units that stand out for the impact and
international relevance of their results.

The position is linked to IMAGINE

seeks to enable robots to understand the structure of their environment
and how it is affected by their actions. "Understanding" here means the
ability of the robot (a) to determine the applicability of an action
along with parameters to achieve the desired effect, and (b) to discern
to what extent an action succeeded, and to infer possible causes of
failure and generate recovery actions. This scientific objective is
pursued in the context of recycling of electromechanical appliances.

The postdoc will be incorporated into the Perception and Manipulation
Group of IRI. S/he will be hired through a 2-year postdoctoral contract
with a salary in the range of 27000 to 35000 € gross per year, depending
on experience and skills. The incorporation will be take place as soon
as possible.

The candidate can be of any nationality. S/he should be a doctor in
automated planning, preferably with experience in robotics. The
candidate should have strong skills in C++ programming and a good track
of publications in international journals and conferences of the area.
