Two researcher positions are available at the Personal Robotics laboratory 
of Imperial College London; one is at the postdoctoral level and one at the
doctoral level. The successful candidates will work under the supervision
of Dr Yiannis Demiris (www.demiris.info) within the context of a new EU FP7 
STREP project WYSIWYD (What you Say is What you Did), which started in 
January 2014  and will run for three years. The project aims at developing humanoid  
robot  systems capable of open-ended  learning of sensorimotor and cognitive skills 
during multimodal interaction with humans. 

The positions offer an exciting interdisciplinary topic and an excellent working 
environment in one of the world’s top research universities; the positions are
available immediately, and will run until the end of the project in December 
2016. 

Candidates with strong background in one or more of: computer  vision, 
human action understanding, humanoid robot control, and machine learning are 
encouraged to  apply.  Strong computing and mathematical skills are a must,
along with a strong desire to see your algorithms working on real robots. 
Details about the positions, key responsibilities, ideal  person  specifications, 
and the application procedure that needs to be followed can be  found at the lab’s
