MULTIPLE post-doc positions available in robotic manipulation and/or vision

Salary: £28,695 - £37,394 depending on experience

We are now recruiting for AT LEAST FOUR Post-Doctoral Research Fellow positions. These will be in robotic manipulation/grasping, computer/robot vision (3D object detection/recognition/modelling/localisation), or a combination of the two areas.

We urgently need one person to start AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, and we will need three more to start as soon as possible after May 1st 2015.

The work is being funded by a combination of UK research council funds and a major new EU H2020 project, in collaboration with UK and French nuclear industries. In parallel, we also have a major collaboration with KUKA UK. Therefore, these projects will offer potential for: i) travel and collaboration with top EU academic robotics labs, and ii) if desired – interaction with industrial collaborators and potential for Knowledge Transfer and Commercialisation activities in addition to the pure academic research.

University of Birmingham has one of the leading UK robotics research groups, with a diverse research portfolio spanning a variety of different areas of robotics and computer vision. For an example of some exciting recent UoB work on vision-guided robotic manipulation, see:

Candidates should have:
1) Phd in robotic manipulation and/or computer vision.
2) Ideally some post-doctoral or other practical experience also.
3) Outstanding programming skills, including extensive/professional knowledge and experience in C++.
4) Very strong mathematics skills, including an understanding of computational geometry, probability theory and machine learning.
5) Ability to deliver a working real-time demo with cameras, sensors, and high-end robotics hardware.
