Post-doc position in decentralised cognitive processing

In the context of the DICE project, a new research opportunity is available for a post-doc, starting as early as March 2016.

Deadline for applications: January the 20th, 2016

The overall aim of the project is the study of emergent cognitive processes in distributed systems as the result of the interaction among autonomous agents constituting the system. From a theoretical point of view, the project requires the identification and characterization of the population-level dynamics that describe the system behavior. From a practical point of view, the project requires the design of implementation strategies for multi-agent systems (e.g., swarm robotics systems) in order to precisely reproduce the desired macroscopic dynamics. The candidate will focus on problems involving collective decision-making and categorization. Analytical, modelling and programming skills are required, as the research will involve both theoretical investigations and experimental studies with swarms of robots (Kilobots).

The notice of selection and the procedure are available at the following address:
