Faculty Position in the area of Human-Robot Interaction

Dear colleagues,

I would like to circulate an advert offering a newly created permanent faculty position in the area of human-robot interaction, joining the multidisciplinary and international research team at University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield, UK. The human-robot interaction activities have attracted substantial research funding and we are currently involved in a number of European projects (Robotcub, IROMEC, LIREC, I-Talk). The postholder will participate in and contribute to this research. The post is particularly suitable for researchers with a background and/or interest in interdisciplinary research. The post is being advertised as Senior/Principal Lecturer, and a successful postholder will be expected to be eligible for a Readership (Associate Professor) within a few years.

The Adaptive Systems Research Group founded in 2000 by Prof. K.
Dautenhahn and Prof. C. L. Nehaniv is an internationally leading group
in Human-Robot Interaction, Social Robotics, and other areas, comprising over 30 research academic, postdocs, and other researchers.

Below I include the official advert. Essential requirements for the post include several years of post-doctoral or equivalent research experience with an excellent research track record of relevant quality publications in English. More details about the post (including the complete job and person specifications) can be found at:
http://web-apps.herts.ac.uk/uhweb/apps/hr/academic-vacancies.cfm

All formal applications must be made online (see URL above). In order to judge the suitability for the post it is recommended to find out about the research being carried out by Prof. Kerstin Dautenhahn before contacting her:

Senior/Principal Lecturer in Adaptive Systems

University of Hertfordshire
http://www.herts.ac.uk/

School of Computer Science
Adaptive Systems Research Group
http://adapsys.feis.herts.ac.uk/

Salary 33700-51000 GBP pa depending on qualifications and experience

You will work within the Adaptive Systems Research Group, a proactive, dynamic and interdisciplinary research team with an excellent international research profile. The group is leading research in the fields of Human-Robot Interaction and Social Robotics and has organized several international conferences and attracted substantial research funding.
This role is focused towards the long-term development of the existing Computer Science research base at the University. In the 2001 RAE this unit of assessment became the largest 4-rated unit in the sector (34.2 FTE) and you will complement and strengthen these ongoing research activities. In particular, we are seeking individuals who will contribute to and further develop international excellence in research in the Adaptive Systems area, specifically in those research activities led by Prof. Kerstin Dautenhahn. You will have significant experience of working in a research environment, as evidenced by an excellent track record of quality publications in the area of Adaptive Systems, e.g. in one of the following fields: Human-Robot Interaction, Human-Computer Interaction, Developmental Robotics, Cognitive Robotics.
For an initial period of three years you will be given considerable support to build up your research with around 70% of your work devoted to research activities. A funded PhD studentship will be available and associated to one of the existing research projects in Adaptive Systems. Following this period your research will be expected to be self funding as part of externally funded research projects within the Adaptive Systems research group. You can anticipate that within a few years your profile will make you eligible for a Readership.
Preference will be given to candidates whose research is a good fit with the existing research activities led by Prof. Dautenhahn in the Adaptive Systems research group.

For informal enquiries please contact Prof. K. Dautenhahn on K.Dautenhahn@herts.ac.uk
