Senior Research Fellow in Cognitive Vision/Robotics, University of Leeds, UK


Contact: a.g.cohn@leeds.ac.uk

Senior Research Fellow in Cognitive Vision/Robotics
University of Leeds - School of Computing

Full Time, Fixed-Term until the 31st May 2017

The University of Leeds has developed an international reputation for research in Cognitive Vision 
building systems that can show a high level of understanding of video input. This work has been 
collaborative between the Computer Vision and Knowledge Representation and Reasoning research 
groups (lead by Professors Hogg and Cohn respectively) in the Institute of AI and Biological 
Systems (Directed by Professor Cohn). A particular focus of the research is to learn activity 
models expressed in a qualitative spatio-temporal symbolic manner. This programme of research 
has been supported by a continuing sequence of projects, funded by the EPSRC, the EU and DARPA. 
The current grant portfolio will support a team of at least 5 junior researchers (Research Fellows 
and students) until November 2014 and at least 4 until April 2016. This position has been created 
to provide a coordinating role for the grant portfolio, ensuring deliverables are produced in a 
timely manner, managing resources and coordinating the relationship with project partners. The 
post-holder will be active in research themselves, with ample time to conduct and develop their 
own research career, publishing their research at leading international venues, to further develop 
their already excellent CV which will be required for an appointment to Grade 8. A PhD or 
equivalent experience in Computer Science or a related discipline is essential.

The postholder will also be responsible for ensuring that deliverables for projects are produced 
in a timely manner, in collaboration with the Principal Investigators and the junior researchers. 
It is also expected that the appointee will take a leading role in acquiring further funding, 
developing new research proposals and funding ideas.
