This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and capable person to
lead the development and implementation of new robotics practical sessions
for undergraduate teaching. The post is in the Department of Computer
Science at the University of Sheffield, a world top 100 University.

You will be responsible for the design and implementation of new robotics
practical curricula including the co-ordinated deployment of new hardware
and software systems. Working across robotics courses delivered across all
levels of undergraduate teaching, you will ensure that our laboratory
exercises present undergraduates with a consistent, supportive and
challenging learning environment.

A key aim of the laboratories is to teach students to program robots.
Besides knowledge of programming languages such as Python, C, and C++
experience with ROS, the Robot Operating System, would be useful. Some
experience of working with classroom robotic hardware. we will be using
Turtlebots and MiRo-E robots, would be beneficial. In addition,
knowledge/experience of current methods in robotics is an advantage.
