University of Birmingham, UK The University of Birmingham is making a multi-million pound investment to create a multi-disciplinary centre covering the fields of robotics, cognition and neuroscience. The Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics (CN-CR) will encompass work from the development of advanced robotic systems to understanding of brain function. We are therefore seeking a Professorial Chair in Robotics. Applications are encouraged in a broad range of areas aligned with intelligent robotics and computational vision. These include: cognitive or software architectures for autonomous, intelligent robots, planning for robotics, SLAM, navigation and spatial cognition, technologies for human robot interaction, robot vision, computational or machine vision, evolutionary robotics, bio-inspired and bio-plausible robotics, humanoid robotics, robot learning, robotic manipulation, and automated diagnosis for robot systems. Chair in Robotics (ref: 38193) ________________________________________ Competitive salary for an outstanding candidate We are searching for an outstanding individual in any area of intelligent robotics, computational vision, or autonomous systems, including those outlined above. In evaluating applications, we will look for a track record of world leading, high impact research, together with an outstanding track record of obtaining external research funding.
