The creation of the new Lincoln Institute of Agri-food Technology is a milestone in the development of the University of Lincoln and our College of Science. Situated in the agricultural heartland of the UK, the Institute will be a focal point for the University's strategic development of agri-food technology as a key thematic specialism and will build on our current strengths. Through research areas including agri-robotics, food manufacturing, agronomy, biotechnology and ecology, we are aiming to serve our community and the whole world by contributing to regional development and global food security.

The Chair in Agri-robotics will be key to the launch and development of the Institute. You will aim to build LIAT's profile in agri-robotics and establish an international reputation in the subject, securing funding and publishing world class research. You will take a substantive position in one of our LIAT-affiliated schools, and will also have the opportunity to contribute to the development of the Institute's strategic development plan.

You will be a highly experienced academic with expertise in a relevant area of robotics or autonomous systems, including their application to agriculture. In addition to an outstanding publication record, you will bring a proven ability to join up academic and industrial stakeholders to facilitate high class research. You will also bring successful experience of attracting research/enterprise funding.
