Two posts vacant: Professor and Lectureship in Robotics
University of Birmingham, UK
The University of Birmingham is making a multi-million pound  
investment to create a multi-disciplinary centre covering the fields  
of robotics, cognition and neuroscience.  The Centre for Computational  
Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics (CN-CR) will encompass work from  
understanding of brain function to the development of advanced robotic  

We are therefore seeking a Professorial Chair in Robotics, together  
with an associated lectureship. These complement five appointments  
(two Chairs and three lectureships) being made in Computational  

Applications are encouraged in a broad range of areas aligned with  
intelligent robotics and computational vision. These include:  
cognitive or software architectures for autonomous, intelligent  
robots, planning for robotics, SLAM, navigation and spatial cognition,  
technologies for human robot interaction, robot vision, computational  
or machine vision, evolutionary robotics, bio-inspired and bio- 
plausible robotics, humanoid robotics, robot learning, robotic  
manipulation, and automated diagnosis for robot systems.
