The CoreSense project is a groundbreaking international and multidisciplinary project that aims at formulating a theory of awareness based on a systemic concept of understanding and implementing it in a reference hybrid cognitive architecture and engineering toolbox for aware autonomous robots. The novel architecture will be validated in the development of three autonomous robot demonstrators with increased capabilities to work without/with limited supervision, and next-generation interaction with humans, with greatly improved intuitive, safe and efficient cognitive, social and physical capabilities, to assist humans. The results will be released in the form of reusable software assets for the ROS ecosystem.
We are looking for an enthusiastic team player to lead the development of the novel hybrid cognitive architecture for autonomous robots based on deep understanding. You will be collaborating very closely with the project team in Delft and the rest of the partners, especially Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, and travelling to Madrid and other partner institutions will be required.
Other tasks include:
Required qualifications and qualities:
Desired qualifications and qualities:
You will specialize in cognitive architectures and symbolic reasoning, and develop your people and project management skills. You will build a diverse interdisciplinary network that includes roboticists, AI experts, software engineers and system architects.
You are encouraged to develop your own (current) expertise/interest further within the CoreSense project.
In collaboration with the project partners, you will receive (additional) ROS (Robot Operating System) training. There are opportunities to guest lecture in existing BA and MSc courses, and you are expected to supervise MSc students and participate in the supervision of PhD students.
Fixed-term contract: 24 months.
Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (salary indication: € 3.703 - € 4.670 per month gross).
