We are seeking two full time Robotics and Systems Engineers to join the Oxford Mobile Robotics Group at the Department of Engineering Science in the UK. The appointments will be for two years in the first instance.
We are looking for two professionals to accelerate the impact of our research into domains such as autonomous cars, factory automation, civil engineering, space exploration and nuclear inspection. You will join a team dedicated to the delivery of robust, well maintained, well documented, well tested, well managed and ambitious platform development.
You will be an outstanding engineer with mechanical and electrical design skills. You will be a clear and purposeful communicator and enjoy hands-on technical project work. You will be comfortable working software and hardware engineers. This is a technical robotics-science role and you will have demonstrable experience in working on projects (in or out of the University environment) which involve complex software and hardware interactions. You will understand and anticipate the impact mobile robotics and automation will have on society and hence necessity of this role.
Lastly, it is worth pointing out that this is not a postdoc research position - instead it is a job dedicated to making things work out there in the field. If this sounds interesting you really should apply, please do.
The online application process and further details are posted here http://www.eng.ox.ac.uk/about-us/jobs (Vacancy ID 110341) and informal enquiries may be addressed to Paul Newman pnewman at robots.ox.ac.uk
By the way - because of the way things work, only applications received before midday 2nd December can be considered. You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position, CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.
