We are hiring a Research Associate to support our successful STRANDS Project (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__strands-2Dproject.eu&d=DQIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=_bdF_cIh0iIjlDn8_1LnlX6iNJjGRtBFREnX9LWCGCs&s=CVVlhMBQkh5USFIS0dip3txNQfSXvk5ejiWtHlTr4LQ&e= ) by taking our existing mobile robot code base for long-term autonomy (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_strands-2Dproject&d=DQIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=_bdF_cIh0iIjlDn8_1LnlX6iNJjGRtBFREnX9LWCGCs&s=drBiyfmnf_TORfqsBlNLHW1V5KSwKdozAvFr7priYtE&e= , https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__arxiv.org_abs_1604.04384&d=DQIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=_bdF_cIh0iIjlDn8_1LnlX6iNJjGRtBFREnX9LWCGCs&s=oO4MFpPPc9pOWxOQEmgRwv8ye93xx3HbQe12WZqgbng&e= ) and working with an industrial end user to create a logistics application system at the user's site. 

We are primarily looking for a coder (no PhD needed) who is capable of taking a large and complex research software system and specialising it for the application in question. The ideal candidate will have experience of mobile robots and ROS, but anyone with excellent software skills, relevant experience, and a willingness to learn, will be considered. This is an ideal job for a recent CS graduate who is looking to get some short-term research experience.

Please contact me for informal enquires (n.a.hawes at cs.bham.ac.uk), and see the following link for more information: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__tinyurl.com_strands-2Dkt-2Dra&d=DQIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=_bdF_cIh0iIjlDn8_1LnlX6iNJjGRtBFREnX9LWCGCs&s=mlcsBIza9ad1f_fnoCEolmfOudd-NBLVEBK9VGFIXwk&e=
