Snapshot

We are looking for Research Scientists to join the Robotics team whose mission is to build “Embodied AI” - a robot brain capable of turning language instructions into useful physical actions - to improve the lives of billions of people in the physical world.

The Role

Research Scientists work on a diverse and stimulating range of projects including: developing algorithms and prototype applications, providing software design and programming support to research projects, along with architecting and implementing software libraries. Our Research Scientists are pivotal to the development and ongoing improvement of our research through the computational implementation of our latest theoretical work.

Key responsibilities:

  • Design, implement and evaluate models and software prototypes of robotic agents.
  • Report and present research findings and developments including status and results clearly and efficiently both internally and externally, verbally and in writing.
  • Suggest and engage in team collaborations to meet ambitious research goals.
  • Work with external collaborators and maintain relationships with relevant research labs and key individuals as appropriate.
  • About You

    In order to set you up for success as a Research Scientist at Google DeepMind, we look for the following skills and experience:

  • PhD in a technical field or equivalent practical experience.
  • Knowledge of the latest in large machine learning research.
  • In addition, the following would be an advantage:

  • Experience working with simulators and real-world robots.
  • Expertise in using large datasets with deep neural networks to make real robots useful.
  • A real passion for AI impacting real world robots!
  • What We Offer

    About the employer

    We’re a team of scientists, engineers, ethicists and more, committed to solving intelligence, to advance science and benefit humanity.

    Our story

    We’ve always been fascinated by human intelligence – it shaped the modern world we live in today.

    Intelligence allows us to learn, imagine, cooperate, create, communicate, and so much more. By better understanding different aspects of intelligence, we can use this knowledge as inspiration to build novel computer systems that learn to find solutions to difficult problems on their own.

    Like the Hubble telescope that helped us look deeper into space, these tools are already expanding human knowledge and making positive global impact. Our long term aim is to solve intelligence, developing more general and capable problem-solving systems, known as artificial general intelligence (AGI).

    Guided by safety and ethics, this invention could help society find answers to some of the world’s most pressing and fundamental scientific challenges.

    We’re solving intelligence to advance science and benefit humanity. At the heart of this mission is our commitment to act as responsible pioneers in the field of AI, in service of society’s needs and expectations.
