We are looking to recruit up to 2 postdoctoral Research Fellows with research profiles in robotic navigation and mapping, robotic scheduling and planning, or robotics system science and engineering, to join our growing agri-robotics research team.
RASberry is a collaboration between the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) and University of Lincoln. Under this project, more than 10 postdoctoral and PhD researchers form a team to develop robust cutting-edge scientific solutions to address the challenges of in-field logistics and collaboration between mobile robots and human workers.
You will have access to state-of-the-art research farms equipped with industrial standard production facilities, as well as agricultural robots with advanced sensors and tools, including the world-leading Thorvald platform. Through the close collaboration with industry and academic partners, you will be embedded in an international consortium, with excellent opportunities to develop a strong individual research portfolio while being engaged in impactful and exciting research solving real-world problems.
We are looking to recruit postdoctoral researchers with relevant experience and/or a keen interest in a number of research areas, including (but not limited to):
* Long-term autonomy for mobile robots;
* Robotic (outdoor) mapping and self-localisation;
* Mobile robot navigation;
* Remote management and operations of autonomous systems;
* Shared autonomy and distributed systems;
* Scheduling and planning for robotic fleets;
* Software engineering in robotics; and
* Integration and orchestration of robotic systems.
You will be placed at the centre of this exciting project, collaborating closely with other researchers, taking a leading role in the research, development, integration and orchestration of the overall system, with a focus on software development.
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). This opportunity allows you to engage in international collaboration within an ambitious team, to work with state-of-the-art robotic hardware and software, and to benefit from excellent support to produce and disseminate original research contributions in the leading international conferences and journals.
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.
