-===== Multiple Positions in Robotics/​Vision/​Learning at U. Innsbruck ​=====+======Working With Us======
  
-In a new research group in Intelligent and Interactive Systems at the [[http://​uibk.ac.at|University of Innsbruck]],​ directed by Prof. Justus Piater, multiple positions are available for postdoctoral researchers ​and doctoral students.+=====Assistant Professor (with Tenure-Track Option) of Computer Science ​in Embodied Artificial Intelligence ​and Machine Learning=====
  
-==== Our Opportunities ====+**Starting date:** October 1, 2018, or as soon as possible thereafter.
  
-These (non-permanent) university research staff positions are not tied to any specific research projects. Research topics are negotiable ​within the range of activities ​of the research groupTopics of particular interest include:+This position is initially limited to 6 years; a tenure-track agreement can be offered ​within the first year of employment. Upon positive evaluation ​the position is converted into a tenured Associate Professorship.
  
-    * gesture-based human-computer interaction +This career position is embedded in an attractive environment ​of existing competencies in the general area of Autonomous Robotics, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Data Science, Recommender Systems, Compressed Sensing, and Dictionary Learning. It is one of 12 career positions the University of Innsbruck is creating in diverse scientific disciplines connected ​to digitalization,​ a strategic investment by the University.
-    * video analysis for sign language transcription +
-    * semantic understanding ​of observed manipulative actions +
-    * exploratory learning from sensorimotor ​to conceptual levels +
-    * learning to learn: leverage experience to guide future learning +
-    * perception and inference for robotic grasping and manipulation +
-    * landmark-based visual SLAM +
-    * reactive algorithms for obstacle avoidance and navigation+
  
-Most of these topics tie in with one active ​and two upcoming EU-FP7-ICT projects in Cognitive SystemsInteraction and Roboticsoffering a vibrant ​and internationally well-connected research environment.+//Embodied Artificial Intelligence//​ refers to Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the widest sense with particular focus on interaction with the physical world by means of sensors ​and/or actuators. Embodied Artificial Intelligence aims to increase autonomyflexibility,​ fault tolerance, and the ability of artificial systems to communicate within our world.
  
-Postdoctoral researchers are expected ​to assume leadership rolesIn addition, all positions involve ​minor teaching requirements.+Specific topics of interest may include for example: 
 + 
 +  * Autonomous robots or vehicles capable of learning; 
 +  * Autonomous, exploratory and/or guided learning in open scenarios;​ 
 +  * Incremental/​hierarchical learning of reusable and composable concepts; 
 +  * Learning and planning across continuous (sensors, actuators) and discrete (symbolic) representations. 
 + 
 +Applicants should have pertinent scientific achievements in embodied AI and machine learning beyond their doctoral dissertation,​ and should possess an excellent scientific track record commensurate with their academic age. 
 +
