Fixed Term: Salary Level 5/6/7: A$49,771 - A$69,174 per year dependent  
on level (plus up to 17% employer superannuation plus leave loading).

The UNSW node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Autonomous Systems  
(CAS) in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at UNSW is  
seeking to employ up to two autonomous systems engineers to assist in  
developing the centre's hardware and software applications in  
autonomous systems.

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Autonomous Systems (www.cas.edu.au)  
is an ARC funded research centre with nodes at UNSW, the University of  
Sydney and the University of Technology, Sydney. It is one of the  
leading centres of research in autonomous systems world-wide. The  
centre's current research themes are: persistent autonomy, multi-robot  
cooperation and human-machine interaction. Within these themes the  
UNSW node of CAS conducts research in urban search and rescue,  
knowledge representation and planning, human robot interaction,  
genetic algorithms and tactile sensing. It has won several awards and  
competitions including the RoboCup Soccer Legged League and placed  
well in RoboCup Rescue.

This is an outstanding opportunity to further develop your career in  
the sought-after field of robotics.
You will find great satisfaction in making a name for yourself in a  
challenging role, and can look forward to
many interesting opportunities to apply your work in the field.

We have an outstanding position available for a dynamic and  
enthusiastic Autonomous Systems Engineer to undertake
development of software and/or hardware platforms related to robotics.
This role is suited to an individual who has a strong background in  
autonomous systems,
excellent team work skills, a responsible nature and an enthusiasm for  
seeing their work integrated into real platforms.

To succeed, you will need to possess an undergraduate degree in  
Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering,
Electrical, Mechatronic Engineering or similar.
Experience in software development and working with complex systems,  
particularly real robotic systems, will also be considered an asset.

The positions are fixed term for up to three-years and broad-banded  
across level 5 to level 7. The Faculty reserves the right to appoint  
at the most appropriate level.

Applicants should systematically address the selection criteria in
