Research Fellow in Machine Learning - Fixed TermSchool of Computer
*Salary:  * From £32,548 per annum
Fixed Term for approximately 1 year
*Closing Date:  * Monday 25 September 2017
*Interview Date:  * To be confirmed
*Reference:  *COS413C

We seek to employ a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher that will be
working on a joint project with Toyota on the topic "Hierarchical Deep
Learning for Autonomous Driving".  You should hold a PhD or be near to
completion, and should be able to demonstrate a good track record in at
least one of the following research fields:

- Deep Learning

- Reinforcement Learning

- Imitation Learning

- Movement Primitives and Movement Representations

- Variational Bayes and Hierarchical Bayesian Models

The contract is for one year. If the project is successful it is likely to
be extended by Toyota for several years.

Once in post, you will be working with Professor Gerhard Neumann on the
aforementioned research topics. The successful candidate will be a member
of the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems (L-CAS). The L-CAS is part of
the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln and specialises
in the integration of perception, learning, decision-making, control and
interaction capabilities in autonomous systems and the application of this
research in fields such as personal robotics, agri-food, healthcare,
security, and intelligent transportation. The L-CAS is one of the fastest
growing robotics groups in the UK. We provide a highly-dynamic
inter-disciplinary research environment with a broad range of collaboration
opportunities and a large variety of robots to work with. In this project,
you will have access to sophisticated car simulators and real autonomous
cars provided by Toyota Europe.

The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution and
you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and
friendly city. The School provides a stimulating environment for academic
research, and is located on the picturesque waterfront campus in the
historic and vibrant city of Lincoln. The University has just announced a
£130M investment programme, a significant part of which is being invested
in new, purpose-built facilities for the School of Computer Science.
Lincoln itself is a small but fast growing city in the east-midlands. It
offers a fantastic life quality given by moderate living costs, a medieval
city centre including a famous cathedral and a beautiful ancient canal
system that is still in use by many house boats nowadays.
