Applications invited for PhD program and postdocs in cognition and robotics (with ASIMO!)

Dear All,

the Institute for Cognition and Robotics (CoR-Lab) at Bielefeld
University, Germany, is seeking applications for PhD and postdoc
positions. The application date for this round is the 30th of
November, 2007.

The CoR-Lab has been established as a research centre working in the
field of intelligent systems and human-machine interaction. It forms a
strategic partnership between Bielefeld University and the Honda
Research Institute Europe GmbH, Germany. It will pursue fundamental
research in the field of cognitive robots and intelligent systems,
with the Honda humanoid robot ASIMO as one of the most advanced
technological platforms available today.

With regard to the themes discussed on this list, I would like to
emphasize that speech understanding, auditory analysis,
multi-/cross-modal interaction and sonification have already been
firmly established as active areas of research at Bielefeld and we
intend to build upon this strength in the CoR-Lab.

Bielefeld University has also recently been awarded an excellence
cluster in "Cognitive Interaction Technology", which includes the
departments for psychology and psycholinguistics. Close collaboration
between these two areas is expected

For more information and application information, please refer to

Best Regards,

Dipl.-Inform. Ingo Lütkebohle
Faculty of Technology
Bielefeld University
