"European Research Group", my ars€!

Apply for our new vacancy as Research Fellow in AI for Long-Term Autonomy,
and come to work in a real European research group.

Location:  School of Computer Science, University of Lincoln, UK
Salary:   From £33,199 per annum
Please note this post is fixed term until 23/12/2020 and 1.0 FTE
Closing Date:   Wednesday 07 August 2019
Interview Date:   Tuesday 03 September 2019
Reference:  COS670

The University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a new Postdoctoral Research
Fellow to join the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems (L-CAS). The
successful candidate will be employed as part of the Horizon 2020 project
ILIAD, involving four academic institutes and five industrial partners
across four European countries. The ILIAD project involves fleets of robots
that operate flexibly in warehouse environments shared with humans (see
iliad-project.eu). L-CAS contributions to the project include ensuring
long-term operation of the ILIAD system, maintaining its environment
representations over time, learning and predicting activity patterns of
humans, and developing qualitative models for human-robot interaction.

We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral Research Fellow with relevant
experience and/or a strong interest in research areas such as:

   - Long-term autonomy for mobile robots
   - Lifelong self-localisation and mapping;
   - 3D perception and semantic mapping;
   - Navigation and environment modelling;
   - Human activity monitoring and prediction;
   - Systems integration, including ROS.

Applicants should have, or expect to soon obtain, a PhD in a relevant area.
You must have excellent mathematical and coding skills (C++/Python, ROS).
The Research Fellowship offers the opportunity to engage in international
collaboration within an ambitious team, to work with state-of-the-art
robotic hardware and software, and to benefit from excellent support to
produce and disseminate original research contributions in the leading
international conferences and journals. This post will be fixed term until
the project end in December 2020, with excellent opportunities for ongoing
career development and progression.

The successful candidate will contribute to the University’s ambition to
achieve international recognition as a research intensive institution and
will be expected to design, conduct and manage original research in the
above subject areas as well contribute to the wider activities of L-CAS.
Evidence of authorship of research outputs of international standing is
essential, as is the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team,
including excellent written and spoken communication skills. Opportunities
to teach and supervise postgraduate students, including our MSc programme
in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, will also be available to outstanding
candidates.
