*Associate Research Fellow position available immediately for 25 months.*

> Based in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at
> the University of Exeter, you will undertake research into mathematical
> modelling and analysis of human social interactions. This is an exciting
> opportunity to contribute to a joint venture between movement scientists
> from Montpellier 1 University in France, computer science experts from the
> DFKI centre (Germany), mathematicians from the University of Exeter and
> Bristol (UK), roboticists from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
> (CH), as well as clinicians, psychologists and psychiatrists from the
> Academic Hospital of Montpellier (CHRU, FR). This position is funded by
> European Union FP7 research project *AlterEgo: Enhancing social
> interactions using information technology*. The objective of AlterEgo is
> the creation of an interactive cognitive architecture (ICA), implementable
> in various artificial agents, allowing a continuous interaction with
> socially deficient humans. The final aim of the proposal is to produce a
> new robotic-based clinical method able to enhance social interaction of
> patients suffering from social disorders.
> You will have an excellent background in mathematics, physics and/or
> engineering, and should be committed to applying their research to make
> real artificial agents’ systems interacting with people in challenging
> circumstances. You are expected to produce reliable mathematical models and
> numerical algorithms that i) allow real-time adaptation of the coupled
> human-artificial agent dynamics and ii) integrate all parts of the
> interactive cognitive architecture together. The successful applicant will
> be able to present information on research progress and outcomes,
> communicate complex information, orally, in writing and electronically and
> prepare proposals and applications to external bodies.
> Applicants will possess a relevant PhD and be able to demonstrate
> sufficient knowledge in the discipline and of research methods and
> techniques to work within established research programmes, including
> mathematical modelling and numerical bifurcation analysis.
> The closing date for applications is *20 September 2013*.
> *The salary range is £24,766 up to £26,476 per annum, depending on
> qualifications and experience**.*
> *Please send your completed application and equal opportunities form
> along with your CV, covering letter and the details of three referees, to
> Dr Krasimira Tsaneva-Atanasova,** **email:** *
> K.Tsaneva-Atanasova at exeter.ac.uk*, tel:** **01392 723615** **quoting the
