Faculty Hire in Robotics (Reader/Lecturer)

The School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh is recruiting a tenured faculty in Robotics and Control (Keywords: Adaptive Control, Humanoids, Locomotion, High DOF Planning, Machine Learning) -- at Lecturer (US equivalent Assistant Professorship - but with tenure) or where appropriate, at Reader (Associate Professorship) level.

Applications are invited from leading researchers and rising stars with a demonstrated track history of world class publications and hands-on experience with real world platforms.

We have made significant investments in establishing the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics (www.edinburgh-robotics.org) and the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, with flagship hardware such as the NASA-UoE Valkyrie Humanoid Platform (http://valkyrie.inf.ed.ac.uk/) and over 65 fully funded PhD studentships in Robotics over the next 8 years. We are particularly keen on candidates who can exploit these unique facilities (e.g, with a strong interest in real-time control on humanoid platforms) and complement our existing strengths.

Edinburgh is an exciting place to live and work. There is a strong tradition of excellence and leadership, with the School of Informatics being consistently ranked as one of the top departments in the country. Please follow the links for more details.
