Two Research Fellow posts at UCLIC - deadline extended
We are looking for two talented post-doctoral researchers in the area of Machine learning and Affective Interaction to join our team at the UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC)/Computer Science Department, University College London. You will contribute to new exciting multi-disciplinary projects in the area of Textile Circular and Sustainable Economy funded by the UKRI Digital Economy Theme. The closing date has been extended for both posts.
Research on AI tools
One role starts from 30th January 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter and is full time until 30 April 2024 - deadline is Fri 27 Jan. This role involves the development and innovation of AI-tools to be used in the home or ubiquitously and in shops. The researcher will lead on, or take part in the innovation of the machine learning architecture, design of the wearable devices as well as the development of a dataset to support the innovation, development and evaluation of such AI-tools. The successful candidate will be proficient in machine learning and ideally have experience in affective computing. S/he should have a PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and a track record of publication at international leading venues. Experience with computer programming is essential. The position is full time until 30 April 2024. See the UCL advert for more information.
Research on chatbots
The second role starts from 1 March 2023 or soon after and is full time for 7 months - deadline is Fri 3 Feb. We are looking for a computer scientist with expertise in chatbots. The role involves the development and innovation of chatbot technology. The researcher will lead on, or take part in the innovation of conversational structure of the chatbot and its implementation. The successful candidate will have experience in developing chatbots that can interact with their users. S/he should have a PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and a track record of publication at international leading venues. Experience with computer programming related to chatbot development is essential. Experience with sensing technology such as movement sensors is desirable. See the UCL advert for more information.
Successful candidates will become part of an internationally renowned and multi-disciplinary team across the UCL Interaction Centre (where you will be based), and UCL Computer Science. Each researcher will be able to work in a hybrid manner, but it is expected that they would generally be on site 60% of the time, but there may be times when they need to be on site 80% or more.
