The Robotics and Autonomous Systems Discipline at QUT is growing and keen to take on up to two academics to augment its capabilities in research and teaching. We are looking for applicants who are able to teach effectively in our robotics and autonomous systems units and take on research and industry projects.

QUT is a highly ranked Australian University with a major program in robotics research, industrial applications and education. The robotics group at QUT comprises more than 110 staff, including 10 academic staff and 20 research fellows and engineers. QUT leads the $26M Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision (ACRV). 

The Robotics and Autonomous Systems Discipline’s key goal is to create robots and autonomous systems that can operate in and interact with the world in the same complex ways as humans. Our projects include and are applied to:
- Robotic vision;
- Sustainable agriculture;
- Mining automation;
- Lifelong autonomy for robots;
- Neuroscience and robotics;
- Flying, ground and underwater robotics;
- Medical and healthcare robotics.

Are you an enthusiastic and capable academic with expertise in areas such as:
- Robotics: navigation, perception, vision, learning, manipulation, grasping and
- Autonomous and cognitive systems, systems design and engineering, and mechatronics.
- Dynamical systems and control with application to mechatronics and robotics: analytical and experimental modelling, estimation, control system analysis and design, nonlinear systems.
- Aviation, avionics, UAVs and autonomous vehicles.

These appointments (up to 2 positions) will be offered on an ongoing basis.
