Open post-doc position, 1yr, available now!

The Future Applications Lab is looking for a new post-doc! We are looking for recent Ph.D. graduates from all over the world with a strong interest in robotic artefacts and interaction design.

You'd be working with us in creating practical guidelines that can be used in the design and evaluation of long-term robot ’companions’. You can contribute in many different ways: creating novel concepts for robotic interactions; by investigating the ethical and sociological ramifications of robots and robotic artefacts in everyday life; by performing user tests and ethnographic studies; and much more. The post is for one year. More info in this pdf.
