[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Postdoctoral position in robotics and machine learning at King's College London

Matthew Howard <matthew.j.howard@kcl.ac.uk>
Postdoctoral Research Position in Robotics and Machine Learning
King's College London
Centre for Robotics Research, Department of Informatics

King's College London is now inviting applications for a postdoctoral
research position in the Department of Informatics at King's College London.
The position is available for start in February 2017.

The successful candidate will undertake research into imitation
learning/programming by demonstration for compliant/soft robot control,
inspired by biological models of impedance control. It will examine the
ways in which ordinary users interact with these systems, and are able
to manipulate them to perform tasks, feeding back to inform the
usability of PbD for untrained users.

The project will involve considerable interaction with industry, and
part of the role will be to liaise with commercial partners and develop
commercial impact.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in a relevant subject
(informatics, machine learning, robotics, mechanical or electrical
engineering) and demonstrate excellent skills in the design and testing
of statistical machine learning algorithms. Experience in mechatronic
engineering, human movement science, or compliant robotic technologies
are a plus.

She/he must be highly motivated and must have:
- A track record of publishing in high quality conferences and journals.
- Excellent communication skills in English (both writing and speaking).
- A good attitude towards team working in an international environment.

Deadline: 5th January 2017, midnight GMT.

[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Four faculty positions in engineering at King's College London

Matthew Howard
Four Faculty Positions in Engineering
King's College London

Applications are invited for two posts of Lecturer in Engineering and
two posts of Senior Lecturer in Engineering.

Applicants must have a PhD, an excellent publication record, and the
ability to attract research funding appropriate to their specific
research profile and interests. Research collaboration across research
groups and with other departments in the Faculty and across King’s is
strongly encouraged. Duties will be assigned under the direction of the
Head of Department, and will include research, teaching, examining,
administration, and other duties.

The Department already has a strong academic presence in the broad areas
of Telecommunications and Robotics and a funding portfolio which
includes grants from EPSRC and the EU. We seek to strengthen our
presence in these areas with this appointment, though the successful
candidate may undertake research and teaching in any area of engineering
which complements existing research in the Department, or more widely at
King’s.

Deadline: 26th March 2017.
