CSJob: 2 Postdocs, Computer Vision and Machine Learning for Robotics / Navigation, decision making and teleoperation of autonomous vehicles, INRIA, France

Natalia let me know of two postdoc positions at INRIA on deep learning, reinforcement learning and unsupervised learning for computer vision and robotics at

Post-doc - Computer Vision and Machine Learning for Robotics, ENSTA ParisTech/INRIA, Palaiseau, France # Position description #
The Autonomous Systems and Robotics team at ENSTA ParisTech ( and INRIA ( is opening an 12 months postdoc position in the area of vision and machine learning, and in particular representation learning for robotics. The goal is to develop approaches that make it possible to learn relevant low dimensional representations from images that will support behavior learning. The position will take place in the context of the DREAM H2020 european project.
# Context #
The DREAM European project ( is focused on the bootstrap of a developmental process allowing a robot to learn about its environment and the objects it contains. DREAM is one of the five selected projects of the FET call (Future and Emerging Technologies) on « Knowing, doing, being: cognition beyond problem solving ». The position will be located in ENSTA ParisTech, Palaiseau, France, in the frame of the ENSTA ParisTech/INRIA FLOWERS team ( The position involve robotics experiments that will be done in simulation and on the Baxter robot in close collaboration with the ISIR laboratory at UPMC (
# Requirements #
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong academic record. An excellent background is expected with a PhD in computer vision for robotics, representation learning (e.g., deep learning), reinforcement learning or more generally machine learning. Significant experience in real robotics applications will be appreciated. Programming skills in modern C++ and python are expected, along with experience with ROS.
# To apply #
As part of its work in robotics and intelligent vehicles, ENSTA ParisTech
( is recruiting a post-doctoral student to participate in the development of its activities. The areas covered will focus on navigation, path planning, decision making and remote operation of autonomous vehicles.
Inquiry about the position can be directed to Applicants should send a CV, motivation letter (max 1 page), and a list of three references in a single pdf file to Please put [DREAM post-doc] in the subject of the mail. Review of applicants will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled.
