[jobs] Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Long-Term Simultaneous Localization and Mapping
*Closing Date: Monday 15 January 2018*
School of Computer Science, University of Lincoln, UK
Salary: From £32,548 per annum
This post is fixed term for 2 years.
Interview Date: Thursday 01 February 2018
The University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a new Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems (L-CAS). The successful candidate will be employed initially for 2 years as part of the European-funded collaborative project "ILIAD - Intra-Logistics with Integrated Automatic Deployment: safe and scalable fleets in shared spaces", developing mapping and navigation algorithms to enable a fleet of autonomous forklift trucks to (co-)operate in dynamic warehouse environments shared with human workers.
We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral researcher with strong technical expertise and relevant practical experience in robotic mapping technologies including (but not limited to):
* Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM)
* Long-term mapping and self-localization
* 3D point cloud registration and mapping
* Topological, metric, semantic and hybrid maps
* Autonomous mobile robot navigation
* Tracking and learning for autonomous systems
* Systems integration, including ROS
Applicants should have, or expect to soon obtain, a PhD in a relevant area. You must have excellent mathematical and coding skills (C++/Python, ROS). Evidence of authorship of research outputs of international standing is essential. Opportunities to mentor and co-supervise PhD students working in the project team will also be available to outstanding candidates.
The University of Lincoln, located in the heart of the city of Lincoln, has established an international reputation based on high student satisfaction, excellent graduate employment and world-class research.
