A post-doctoral position is open at INSERM U1093, Dijon, for 24 months, in the BotMimic project. The successful candidate will be responsible for conducting face-to-face human-robot interaction experiments to study sensorimtor sequence learning using the state-of-the-art facilities including the humanoid robot iCub, Vicon motion capture system, and a new portable wireless EEG system set up at the Marey Institute in Dijon.
The project will use humanoid robots, motion capture and EEG (INSERM CAPS environment) to develop new methods and markers for human sensorimotor sequence sequence learning . The PhD will develop interfaces and algorithms to control human-robot interaction, collect and analyze motion and EEG data.
The grant is awarded within the framework of the RELAUNCH PLAN: PRESERVATION OF R&D JOBS. In this framework, the candidate must have obtained the Ph.D. during the academic year 2019-2020 or 2020-2021. The candidate must have a PhD in computer science, robotics, machine learning, and/or some familiarity with human-robot interaction programming. Experience with EEG analysis would be a plus. The project will be in direct interaction with the company Bioserenity, and the researcher will be employed by the INSERM CAPS laboratory.
The project is part of an exciting dynamic of the local GIS Starter and the ReadapTIC project which aims at developing solutions beyond the state of the art for patient rehabilitation. In the case of the current project, the research will be fundamental, examining the learning of human sensorimotor sequences through human-robot interaction.
