Senior Research Fellow in Cognitive Vision/Robotics 
School of Computing 
University of Leeds 

Reference Number: ENGCP0034 
University Grade 8 (£37,382 - £44,607 p.a) 
Full Time, Fixed-Term until the 31st May 2017

The University of Leeds has developed an international reputation for research in Cognitive Vision building systems that can show a high level of understanding of video input. This work has been collaborative between the Computer Vision and Knowledge Representation and Reasoning research groups (lead by Professors Hogg and Cohn respectively) in the Institute of AI and Biological Systems (Directed by Professor Cohn). A particular focus of the research is to learn activity models expressed in a qualitative spatio-temporal symbolic manner. This programme of research has been supported by a continuing sequence of projects, funded by the EPSRC, the EU and DARPA. The current grant portfolio will support a team of at least 5 junior researchers (Research Fellows and students) until November 2014 and at least 4 until April 2016. This position has been created to provide a coordinating role for the grant portfolio, ensuring deliverables are produced in a timely manner, managing resources and coordinating the relationship with project partners. The post-holder will be active in research themselves, with ample time to conduct and develop their own research career, publishing their research at leading international venues, to further develop their already excellent CV which will be required for an appointment to Grade 8. A PhD or equivalent experience in Computer Science or a related discipline is essential.

The postholder will also be responsible for ensuring that deliverables for projects are produced in a timely manner, in collaboration with the Principal Investigators and the junior researchers. It is also expected that the appointee will take a leading role in acquiring further funding, developing new research proposals and funding ideas.
