University of Edinburgh Faculty Hire in Robotics (Reader/Lecturer)

The School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh is recruiting a 
tenured faculty in Robotics and Control (Keywords: Adaptive Control, 
Humanoids, Locomotion, High DOF Planning, Machine Learning) -- at 
Lecturer (US equivalent Assistant Professorship - but with tenure) or 
where appropriate, at Reader (Associate Professorship) level.

Applications are invited from leading researchers and rising stars with 
a demonstrated track history of world class publications and hands-on 
experience with real world platforms.

We have made significant investments in establishing the Edinburgh 
Centre for Robotics (www.edinburgh-robotics.org) and the EPSRC Centre 
for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, with 
flagship hardware such as the NASA-UoE Valkyrie Humanoid Platform 
(http://valkyrie.inf.ed.ac.uk/) and over 65 fully funded PhD 
studentships in Robotics over the next 8 years. We are particularly keen 
on candidates who can exploit these unique facilities (e.g, with a 
strong interest in real-time control on humanoid platforms) and 
complement our existing strengths.

Edinburgh is an exciting place to live and work. There is a strong 
tradition of excellence and leadership, with the School of Informatics
