The postdoctoral researcher will be a key member of the Social Robots team and will work closely with other team members. A PhD or equivalent in a relevant field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, or Computer Science), as well as outstanding written and spoken communication skills are essential.
