Dear colleagues,

as part of the creation of a developmental/epigenetic robotics group in 
INRIA Bordeaux,
an open postdoc position has just become available. This position would 
last one year, start
in december or january, be located in Bordeaux and supervised by myself. 
There are four
possible topics: 1) development of advanced curiosity-driven learning 
algorithms and experiments
on robots, 2) development of techniques for achieving naturally and 
intuitively joint attention
between a robot and a human, 3) modeling of developmental mechanisms for 
language acquisition
in robots and human, 4) user/human factor studies in entertainment-robot 

The constraint is that candidatures must be done ASAP. Candidates are 
expected to have already
produced international level publications in relevant journals and 
conferences during their PhD, and
are also expected to have had a significant experience of practical 
computational experiments
in robotics, machine learning or interaction design (except for the user 
studies prosposal).

Potential interested candidates can send me an email for further 

Best regards,
Pierre-Yves Oudeyer
