The Department of Engineering Science intends to appoint an Associate Professor in Engineering Science (Robotics) from 1 September 2018 or as soon as possible after. The successful candidate will work at the Department of Engineering Science (Central Oxford) and will be offered a Tutorial Fellowship at Brasenose College under arrangements described in the Job Description.
This appointment will add further strength to the Department’s internationally-renowned research in robotics, which has been located in the Mobile Robotics Group for the past decade. This post is part of the expansion of the Mobile Robotics Group into the Oxford Robotics Institute, which involves the creation of new academic posts and a move into expanded accommodation in Central Oxford. The Associate Professor will build a research group developing algorithms and systems for machine perception (laser, vision, radar), planning, reconstruction, and platform control.
