> a multi-disciplinary EPSRC RAI (Robotics and Artificial Intelligence) Hub
> consisting of most leading nuclear robotics experts in the UK including
> Universities of Birmingham, Queen Mary, Essex, Bristol, Edinburgh,
> Lancaster and Lincoln. Under this project, more than 40 postdoctoral
> researchers and PhD researchers form a team to develop cutting-edge
> scientific solutions to all aspects of nuclear robotics such as sensor and
> manipulator design, computer vision, robotic grasping and manipulation,
> mobile robotics, intuitive user interfaces and shared autonomy.
>
> At the University of Lincoln, we will develop new machine learning
> algorithms for several crucial applications in nuclear robotics such as
> waste handling, cell decommissioning and site monitoring with mobile
> robots. Clean-up and decommissioning of nuclear waste is one of the biggest
> challenges for our and the next generations with enormous predicted costs
> (up to £200Bn over the next hundred years). Moreover, recent disaster
> situations such as Fukushima have shown the crucial importance of robotics
> technology for monitoring and intervention, which is still missing today.
> Our team will focus on algorithms for vision-guided robot grasping and
> manipulation, cutting, shared control and semi-autonomy, mobile robot
> navigation and outdoor mapping and navigation with a strong focus on
> machine learning and adaptation techniques. A dedicated bimanual robot arm
> platform is being developed, mounted on a mobile platform, and to be
> operated using shared autonomy, teleoperation and augmented reality
> concepts to be developed.
>
> It is in this context that we are looking for two highly skilled PhD
> students, to specialise in machine learning, robot navigation, manipulation
> and grasping, or shared autonomy with robotic systems. The post is fully
> funded for 3.5 years of study (bursary at RCUK rate and all fees covered).
> A generous travel and equipment budget is available, too. Applicants will
> possess excellent research and programming skills as well as a solid
> mathematical understanding. Successful applicants will usually have
> graduated with an MSc degree in a relevant area (e.g. maths, computer
> science, engineering). Previous publications (e.g. from MSc studies) are
> not required but will be considered in favour of the candidate.

> *Applications are continuously received and regularly assessed until both
> positions are filled (this advert will disappear once they are).*
