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.
