Post Doctoral position on Socially Assistive Robotics in Clinical Geriatrics at Sorbonne University

The Institute for Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR) at Sorbonne University in Paris is seeking applications for a post doctoral research position on Socially Assistive Robotics in clinical geriatrics.

The research will be carried out in collaboration with other two institutions: the Groupe Hospitalier Pitié-Salpétrière, Hôpital Charles-Foix, Ivry-Sur-Seine and LTCI, Télécom Paris, Institut polytechique de Paris.

We are looking for a talented and motivated post-doctoral researcher to study the mechanisms that can engage elderly people in interaction and to develop a multi-layered framework enabling robots to play as trainers for them.

The layers of the framework will enable to monitor both the individuals’ and the group’s performances, and to plan adequate strategies to allow every participant to keep the pace of the exercises.

The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team where she/he will pursue clear research scientific questions in order to produce high impact publications in top international conferences and journals.

Funding for the postdoctoral position is available for 12 months, with possibility of extension for further 6 months.

Essential skills:
