We have THREE postdoctoral openings in the field of Robotics and Animation, with an emphasis on Machine Learning techniques for adaptive representation, dynamic planning and motion synthesis in high dimensional, anthropomorphic robotic systems and articulated full-physics animation. We are looking for highly motivated individuals with a strong publication record and solid background in the fundamentals of machine learning, planning and control in robots and/or experience with physically based graphics and animation. The three posts are expected to work in a complementary manner towards the goals of the larger, multi site project: Topology based Motion Synthesis, details of which can be found on the application website.
Posts are tenable for a maximum of three years starting April 2011 and attract a salary in the UE07 pay scale: £29,972 – £35,788 commensurate to experience.
