could you please send the following job advertisement on
robotics-worldwide? Many thanks!

Ulrich Nehmzow.


Senior Research Officer (postdoc) in Mobile Robotics at the University
of Essex, UK
Closing date 11th April 2007

Applications are invited for the post of Senior Research Officer for a
fixed term of three years from 1 May 2007 on a Leverhulme-funded project
“System Identification for Rapid Generation of Transparent, Analysable
Control Code for Autonomous Mobile Robots”. The purpose of the project
is to develop novel machine learning methods, based on system
identification, that allow the automatic translation of observed
behaviour into control code, without resorting to traditional robot
programming methods. The successful candidate will study
robot-environment interaction, applying system identification tools such
as narmax methods to the automatic control code generation for
autonomous mobile robots. The project is based at the University of
Essex and conducted jointly with the University of Sheffield. 

Candidates should have a PhD in computer science or engineering
sciences, and preferably some knowledge of (mobile) robotics, C
programming and system identification. 

Appointment to this full-time, fixed-term 36-month post, commencing on 1
May 2007 or as soon as possible thereafter, will be made at
£26,666-£28,290 per annum depending on skills and experience.
