AISB opportunities Bulletin Item

Research Fellow on EU-funded CoSy Cognitive Robotics Project Birmingham

Applications are required by 14 Feb, though we may be able to process
late applications if selection has not gone too far.

Full details, including application instructions, are available here:

Research Fellow
Cognitive Robotics Project
School of Computer Science

Applications are invited for a Research Fellow to work on an EC-Funded
project: CoSy: Cognitive Systems for Cognitive Assistants. You will be
require to work on reasoning and learning about sensing and perceptual
processing in a robot able to manipulate objects, with an emphasis on
visual processing. The goal of the work will be to develop new methods
for choosing sensing actions and making inferences about a scene when
the robot has to make decisions about where to look, and what visual
processing to perform.

Applicants should hold, or be working towards the achievement of a PhD
in Computer Science, AI, Cognitive Science, Engineering or related
subject OR have equivalent research experience in robotics/vision
research and linux expertise. You will have a strong background in one
or more of the following areas:

o Uncertain reasoning and planning
o Machine learning and statistical inference
o Computer vision
o Symbolic reasoning and planning

You will need excellent programming skills, in C/C++ or Java, together
with the ability to engineer software to very high standards of
reliability. You will work in a team of six researchers at Birmingham
and along with partner groups in six other universities, working on an
ambitious interdisciplinary EC-funded robotic project described at the
CoSy web sites:

You will also be expected to contribute to the management of the group,
grant writing, and setting the research agenda for the future work of
the group. Strong communication and management skills are therefore also
essential. Please check those web sites for up to date information about
the project and this post before applying.

Starting salary in the range of 32,471 to 34,448 a year (potential
progression on performance once in post to 43,638 a year), or in the
range of 24,161 to 31,525 (potential progression once in post to
33,465 a year). This post is available from March 2007 until 28
February 2008 in the first instance, however it is anticipated that the
post will be extended for the full duration of the project (31 August
