2 Vacancies in Robotics Research

Research Associate vacancies in Developmental Robotics

Robotics Research Group, Department of Computer Science,
Aberystwyth University, Wales, UK

Applicants are invited to join the Robotics Laboratory
for a new project (entitled IM-CLeVeR) on developmental
robotic learning based on an iCub humanoid robot. This
is a four year EC FP 7 funded project with 7 other
partners across Europe: in Italy (2), Germany (1),
Switzerland (1), the UK (2) and the USA (1).
There will be 3 iCub humanoid robots purchased for the
project and these will be based in Italy, Switzerland
and Aberystwyth.

Candidates should have good programming and software
engineering skills, a strong interest in robotics research,
and good analytical and communication skills.  The senior
post will require a PhD in a relevant field and will
involve research into developmental techniques, both theory
and implementation.  The junior post will require proven
experience of hardware and software systems and will be
heavily involved with the construction, programming and
support of the iCub robot.
Salary: GBP 23,449 - 24,877  and
GBP 23,449 - 32,458 (PostDoctoral)
