We seek to appoint a permanent Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (equivalent to
Assistant Professor) with established research expertise in Robotics and
Autonomous Systems or a related field.  You should hold a PhD or be near to
completion, and should be able to demonstrate an excellent track record in
these research fields. Once in post, you are expected to contribute to the
School's teaching activities, and to develop your own research portfolio,
which includes acquiring external funding, supervising postdoctoral
researchers and PhD students, publishing in the highest quality journals
and conferences, contributing to real-world applications with positive
impacts on the wider society and economy, and conducting, directing and
supervising research in line with the targets set by the School.

You will be a key part of the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems
(L-CAS), which specialises in the integration of perception, learning,
decision-making, control and interaction capabilities in autonomous
systems, and the application of this research in domains including
agri-food, healthcare, intelligent transportation, logistics, nuclear
robotics, and service robotics. L-CAS is one of the fastest growing
robotics groups in the UK, participating in a large number of collaborative
research projects with other academic and industry partners, funded by
EPSRC, Innovate UK and Horizon 2020, among others. Researchers from this
centre also collaborate closely with other areas including the University’s
recently established research institutes in Agri-Food Technology (LIAT) and
of Health (LIH), and the National Centre for Food Manufacturing (NCFM),
which are focussed on ensuring real-world impact in those application
domains. 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.

We are looking to recruit new people – from early careers researchers to
senior professionals - who share our ambition to become one of the world’s
leading robotics labs. We would welcome applications from new areas that
complement our existing research specialisms.  You will be expected to take
an active part in the activities of the School of Computer Science, to
contribute to its teaching activity at undergraduate and postgraduate
levels, including especially the new MSc programme in Robotics and
Autonomous Systems and Centre for Doctoral Training, and to demonstrate a
commitment to maintaining the University’s high standards in teaching and
