Post Doc in Sensor Technology for Creative Robotics in Architecture
- at Aalborg University, Denmark.

At the Technical Faculty of IT and Design, Department of Architecture, Design, and Media Technolgy a position as Postdoc in Sensor Technology for Creative Robotics in Architecthure is open for appointment from February 1, 2018 or soon hereafter and for a period of two years. The Department of Architecture, Design, and Media Technology has as its goal the development of an innovative cluster of engineering-based environments for education and research which integrate creativity, engineering and technology within the disciplines of architecture, urban design, industrial design, digital design and interactive media. The department is a leading research and educational environment in Denmark that addresses the challenge of the interplay between creativity and technology, and develops new areas in research and education directed towards the end-user.

Aalborg University (AAU) is a leading University in Denmark within Architecture & Design as well as within Robotics. This post doc position is for two years and aims at bridging the gap between these traditionally isolated fields and contribute to research within Creative Robotics. Concretely, the focus will be on researching how sensor technologies, adaptive control and collaborative robotics can take part in the development of creative robotics for architectural applications. The studies are focused on architectural full scale prototypes interfacing between sensor data, parametric design models, robot actuation, information analysis and projection for design decision interfacing.

The ideal candidate therefore has strong competences within; sensor technology for adaptive robotics, computer vision and human-robot-collaboration including visual feedback e.g. VR, AR, projection. Moreover, interests in architecture design processes, material properties sensing and architectural physical prototypes are considered very positive.

The post doc will work closely together with the local Architecture group, Interaction group and Computer Vision group, meaning that the candidate should be interested in cross-disciplinary work.

Limited teaching within the area can be expected, but also in other study programmes at the University.
