Dear colleagues, 

we are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the Mobile Robotics research group at the Department of Engineering Science of the University of Oxford.  The post is funded by the EU and is fixed-term until 30th September 2015. The successful applicant will work with Professor P. Newman and Dr Ingmar Posner on autonomous valet parking and charging for E-mobility. The work will be funded under the FP7 "V-Charge" project as part of a collaboration with research groups at Zurich, Braunschweig and Parma, and industrial partners Volkswagon and Bosch. 

You will be responsible for undertaking and coordinating Oxford’s contribution to the V-Charge project which is focused on autonomous valet parking. You will have a highly technical role requiring the research and development of computer vision and scene understanding techniques. You will also have the responsibility of executing the requirements for EU project reporting. 

Applicants should have completed their PhD research in a relevant discipline, with a strong background in robotics, machine learning and computer vision. Truly excellent programming skills which can or have been applied to the machine learning and robotics domains are absolutely essential. A demonstrated ability to work as part of a team, having experience in validation of algorithms, using real data, and the ability to work to deadlines are also essential.
