We are always looking for strong, motivated students to work on our Bachelor or Master projects.

Ph.D. Student Position in Robot Learning or Computer Vision at U. Innsbruck

The research group in Intelligent and Interactive Systems, led by Profs. Justus Piater and Antonio Rodríguez-Sánchez, has an opening for a Ph.D. student, on a university assistant position that includes minor teaching requirements. The research will be loosely aligned with ongoing research projects in the lab:

  • deep learning in computer vision or robotics
  • computational models of biological vision
  • biologically-inspired computer vision
  • robot vision and closed-loop sensorimotor interaction
  • open-ended and intrinsically-motivated robot learning
  • concept discovery by learning robots
  • goal-oriented exploratory learning
  • prediction of action effects
  • robot skill optimization
  • human-robot interaction and collaboration
