[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Positions as Lecturer/Associate Professor in Robotics at University of Plymouth

Mario Gianni
Dear colleagues,

The University of Plymouth is seeking to fill two positions as Lecturer/Associate Professor in Robotics.

General Description
The School offers a wide range of degree programmes related to Technology in the areas of Robotics, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics.
We provide a stimulating teaching and research environment with strong connections to business and industry and offer excellent employment prospects for our graduates.
We have a well-established interdisciplinary research base which covers: Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems (CRNS); Security, Communications & Networks;
Nanotechnology & Electronics Research and Development. Four current active areas of research in Plymouth are the design and construction of agricultural robots
for fruit and vegetable harvesting; the study of human-robot interaction and collaboration; the computational modelling and development of manipulation systems
based on experimental investigations of human motor control and the design and development of robotic applications for Urban Search & Rescue and Nuclear Decommissioning.

We have vacancies for enthusiastic, innovative and dynamic individuals to join our vibrant School to support Robotics and Machine Learning, especially as applied to solving
real-world problems by building systems that can operate near people. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) aspects of robotics systems such as sensors and actuators,
kinematics and dynamics, autonomous mobile platforms and deep learning for control and recognition.

Required qualifications
Applications are invited from academics and/or professional engineers, who can demonstrate a commitment and enthusiasm for innovation in higher education and
to the development of the next generation of Robotic Engineers.  You must have undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in relevant disciplines
(such as Engineering/Maths/Physics/Computer Science) together with an international profile and reputation for research excellence.

We offer

  *   Salary: from £33,518 to £56,950 (Grade 7/8/9) depending on the candidate's qualification and the level of experience
  *   Contract Type: full-time, working 37 hours per week on a permanent basis

Duties and responsibilities
As well as carrying out cutting edge research, you will supervise and contribute to training of Research Assistants (RAs) and PhD students, as well as contributing to
teaching on the undergraduate and postgraduate Robotics programmes, as well as other courses within the School. The Electronics and Robotics subject groups are
renowned for excellence in producing high quality hands-on engineers and you should be able to support practical hardware and software projects.
