PhD positions: Human Robot Interaction

Dear AUDITORY list,

our partners at Bielefeld University are offering several PhD positions:


The Applied Informatics Group, Faculty of Technology, Bielefeld University is looking for PhD candidates for grants and project positions in the following areas:

* Dialog modeling for human-robot interaction 
* Speech signal modelling and analysis for speech recognition and synthesis
* Modeling and combining bottom-up with top-down attentional-processes 

We invite applications from motivated young scientists with a background in computer science, linguistics, psychology, robotics, mathematics, cognitive science or similar areas, that are willing to contribute to the cross-disciplinary research agenda of our research group. Research and development are directed towards understanding the processes and functional constituents of cognitive interaction, and establishing cognitive interfaces and robots that facilitate the use of complex technical systems. Bielefeld University provides a unique environment for research in cognitive and intelligent systems by bringing together researchers from all over the world in a variety of relevant disciplines under the roof of central institutions such as the Excellence Center of Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC) or the Research Institute for Cognition and Robotics (CoR-Lab).

Successful candidates should hold an academic degree (MSc/Diploma) in a related discipline and have a strong interest in research and social robotics.

All applications should include: a short cover letter indicating the motivation and research interests of the candidate, a CV including a list of publications, and relevant certificates of academic qualification. 

Bielefeld University is an equal opportunity employer. Women are especially encouraged to apply and in the case of comparable competences and qualification, will be given preference. Bielefeld University explicitly encourages disabled people to apply. Bielefeld University offers a family friendly environment and special arrangements for child care and double carrier opportunities.

Please send your application with reference to one of the three offered research areas no later than 15.9.2009 to Ms Susanne Hoeke (shoeke@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx).
