- Do you have a PhD in computer science, user modelling, human-robot teaming, human-computer interaction, data science or cognitive science?
- Keen to work with the best in the field to re-think how to partner human and machine intelligence in symbiotic relationships?
- Work with a multidisciplinary research team across CSIRO and Monash University in this exciting postdoctoral role
CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships aim to develop the next generation of future leaders of the innovation system.
This role will be embedded in CSIRO’s new Collaborative Intelligence (CINTEL) Future Science Platform (FSP). Future Science Platforms (FSPs) are an investment in science that underpins innovation and that has the potential to help reinvent and create new industries for Australia. There is growing acknowledgement that the best results ensue when humans work collaboratively with machines in both physical and virtual/digital worlds. The Collaborative Intelligence (CINTEL) FSP will develop the science that enables human intelligence and technology to work harmoniously together across multiple domains, exceeding the performance of either alone.
The CINTEL FSP is about exploring “collaborative intelligence” and developing the science required to achieve it, leading to greater adoption and effective use of technology, enhanced productivity, and safety. It will also explore how people and machines work and learn together, while ensuring meaningful and rewarding work for people, where machines augment rather than substitute human intellect. Achieving this will require an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together experts in social science, engineering and computer science, with domain expertise in the areas in which collaborative intelligence is to be deployed.
The emphasis will be on research at the cutting edge of an emerging field to explore how to work with machines to boost human capabilities, enhance human decision making and performance, and build human trust in machines.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will work with a multidisciplinary research team across CSIRO and Monash University to develop advanced types of Situational Awareness (SA) for CSIRO’s prizewinning DARPA SubT human-robot team (https://www.csiro.au/en/research/technology-space/robotics/darpa-challenge). The successful applicant will be given the opportunity to work with our SubT team, who recently beat an array of world-renowned robotics groups and took home second place, and a $1M prize, at the DARPA SubT challenge finals.
