SENIOR RESEARCH OFFICER, 
Department of Computing and Electronic Systems


Ref RE490
Location: Colchester
Job Category: Research 
 
Salary: 27,466-29,139                                   
Closing Date: 23/11/07



Applications are invited for the post of Senior Research Officer for a
fixed term of three years on a Leverhulme-funded project ?System
Identification for Rapid Generation of Transparent, Analysable Control
Code for Autonomous Mobile Robots?. The purpose of the project is to
develop novel machine learning methods, based on system identification,
that allow the automatic translation of observed behaviour into control
code, without resorting to traditional robot programming methods. The
successful candidate will study robot-environment interaction, applying
system identification tools such as narmax methods to the automatic
control code generation for autonomous mobile robots.  The project is
based at the University of Essex and conducted jointly with the
University of Sheffield.  

 

Candidates should have a PhD in computer science or engineering
sciences, and preferably some knowledge of (mobile) robotics, C
programming and system identification.  

 

Appointment to this full-time, fixed-term 36-month post will be from 1
April 2008.
