3 POSTS AT KING'S COLLEGE LONDON, DEPARTMENT OF INFORMATICS, CENTRE FOR ROBOTICS RESEARCH
=================================================================================
We are happy to offer some exciting opportunities to join the Centre for Robotics at King's College London. The School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (www.kcl.ac.uk/nms/index.aspx) is undertaking a major recruitment to find 3 world-class researchers who will be involved in cutting-edge EU research in the Department of Informatics:
2 Research Associates, STIFF-FLOP (EU Project), 33.5 and 36 months
1 PhD Studentship, STIFF-FLOP (EU Project), 36 months
About King's College
---------------------------------------------------------------
King's College London (www.KCL.ac.uk) is one of the top 30 universities in the world (2011/2012 QS international world rankings), the Sunday Times 'University of the Year 2010/11' and the fourth oldest in England. A research-led university based in the heart of London, it has nearly 23,500 students (of whom nearly 9,000 are graduate students) from 150 countries and approximately 6,000 employees.

King's has an outstanding reputation for providing world-class research. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise for British universities, 23 departments were ranked in the top quartile of British universities. The College is in the top seven UK universities for research earnings and has an overall annual income of nearly £450 million.

=========================================================
2 Research Associates, STIFF-FLOP, 33.5 and 36 months, £30,870 to £36,862
=========================================================
Two Research Associate positions are available in the Department of Informatics to work with Professors Kaspar Althoefer and Prokar Dasgupta, Dr Thrishantha Nanayakkara and colleagues in the highly esteemed Centre for Robotics Research (CoRe) on a recently awarded EU Grant. The successful candidates will perform and contribute to research in the areas of

* force/tactile and stiffness sensing,
* sensor signal analysis and classification,
* cognitive models for distributed learning and control of soft robot manipulators,
* bimanual human-robot collaboration in visco-elastic force control, as well as
* haptic feedback.
The candidates should have demonstrable research skills and a proven track record in research areas relating to sensing and sensor signal analysis, embedded processing, machine learning, control, and/or haptics, especially in the context of medical robotics.  You will be qualified to PhD level in Robotics, Information Processing, Biomedical Engineering and/or Control. You will have a thorough understanding of robotics, system integration and sensor interfacing.
