School of Computing and Mathematics, University of Plymouth, PL4 8AA
External collaboration with RobotDoc partners in EU, USA, Japan and Taiwan
RobotDoc (Robotics for Development of Cognition) is a multi-national doctoral training network for the interdisciplinary training on developmental cognitive robotics. The PhD students will develop advanced expertise of domain-specific cognitive robotics research skills and of complementary transferrable skills for careers in academia and industry. They will acquire hands-on experience through experiments with the open-source humanoid robot iCub, complemented by other existing robots available in the network's laboratories.
The two PhD studentships at the University of Plymouth will be in the following topics: (1) The emergence of symbol composition capabilities, and (2) The grounding of abstract categories.
For further information contact Professor Angelo Cangelosi by email email@example.com Background information on the supervisors' research profiles can be found on the University of Plymouth website.
Applicants for the post should have a very good first degree in a computer science, or robotics, or in a cognitive science discipline. Applicants with a relevant Masters degree would be particularly welcome. The scholarship is for 3 years and the candidate will receive an annual salary starting from £19,645 per annum. A mobility, travel and career exploratory allowance will also be available.
The following conditions apply:
Applicants must be nationals of any country other than the UK.
Applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the UK for longer than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment.
Early-stage researchers are defined as those who are, at the time of selection, in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the research training is provided, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is envisaged.
Applicants should send a CV, a letter of application and contact details of two academic referees to firstname.lastname@example.org Faculty of Science and Technology Research Office, Portland Square, Plymouth, Devon, PL4 8AA.
CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS: 12 NOON, MONDAY 21 SEPTEMBER 2009
