M. Ehsan Hoque, Assistant Professor
Computer Science, University of Rochester, NY


A postdoc position is available at the University of Rochester, for an
expected DARPA-funded project on building an embodied, learning,
communicative agent driven by a model of collaborative problem-solving.
This project builds on top of our considerable infrastructure from a
decades-long effort to build dialogue systems driven by models of
problem-solving (e.g., TRIPS, PLOW, ...). The project will involve
combining work from a wide range of areas and the successful candidate
should have a background in several of the areas listed below.

Strength in system building is a significant plus. The position is
initially for a two-year term with the possibility of renewal.

- Human-behavior-adaptive interfaces

- Recognition and interpretation for human nonverbal behavior

- Semantics-based natural language understanding

- Dialogue systems

- Natural language generation

- Collaborative problem solving and BDI agents

- Ontologies and reasoning for language processing

- Integrated models of perception and language

- Learning commonsense knowledge and commonsense reasoning


Applicant should send a summary of their background and interests
to James Allen, Ehsan Hoque, and Len Schubert at the addresses below:
