Two Lecturer / Faculty Positions in the Oxford Robotics Institute

We are seeking to appoint up to two new Departmental Lecturers to join the Oxford Robotics Institute (ORI) at the University of Oxford’s Department of Engineering Science.

As a Departmental Lecturer you will be a faculty member and will share in the ORI’s mission to understand and demonstrate how to build better robots. We are open minded about the particular specialism of applicants so long as they have a desire to solve the robotics science problems that stand between us the widespread use of robotic and autonomous systems in the field. Applicants working in the aerial, land or subterranean domains with systems experience are very welcome. You must have a doctorate in a relevant subject as well as post qualification research experience. A strong publication record, ability to lead and strong communication skills are also essential.

The Oxford Robotics Institute (ORI) has over 50 members and holds a world leading position in navigation, mapping, and scene interpretation with a particular strong systems focus. Our scientific focus can be described as “having machines know what is where, where they are and what they should do”. Everything we do seeks to conquer the technical challenges that this phrase implies.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Paul Newman (email: pnewman at robots.ox.ac.uk). Further information can be found at: www.eng.ox.ac.uk/jobs/home and HR say only applications received before 12.00 midday on 10 October 2016 can be considered.
