The Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems is inviting applicants for a post of Professor or Associate Professor (Reader) in one, or more, of the fields of computational neuroscience, cognitive robotics, and computational intelligence. You will be working in a large inter-disciplinary research team at the Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems and the School of Computing and Mathematics. This new post is part of the universitys strategic investment in research, following the success of the centre at the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE2008).      

You must have a strong track record of research at world leading and/or international excellence level, including publications in the leading journals in the field. A sustainable track record of grant income, leadership of research laboratory/group, and evidence of research impact and peer esteem at international excellence level is also essential. The offer of a full Professor, or an Associate Professor (Reader), post will be commensurate to the track record of the candidate. 

Recruitment and selection will be based on individual merit, however, we should particularly like to encourage applications from women, black and minority ethnic people who are under-represented in the Faculty of Science and Technology.
