Postdoc position in NeuroRobotics

Application deadline:

The successful candidate will lead SPECS’ NeuroRobotics lab and drive the research on Cognitive Architectures in the context of the Distributed Adaptive Control theory of mind and brain that SPECS-lab has been elaborating over many years [1, 2, 3, 4]. We are seeking a candidate to advance the DAC Architecture towards a whole brain implementation, which maps this cognitive architecture to the main structures of the mammalian brain. We will test these models on robots both targeting rodents level tasks such as foraging and navigation but also, we want to look at human level tasks such as social interaction and motor rehabilitation. The candidate will work directly with the director of SPECS-lab, ICREA Professor Dr. Paul Verschure.
