Two Lectureships (assistant professorships) in Robotics, King's College London

Dear All,

King's College London is advertising two Lectureships (assistant
professorships) in Robotics. I have no involvement in the hiring process, but am keen to encourage 
applications from people with research interests related to my own, in areas such as machine 
learning, pattern recognition, computer vision, neural computation, cognitive or developmental 
robotics, and intelligent systems. The official job advert is below.

Lectureships in Informatics (Robotics) x2

The Department of Informatics is seeking applications from candidates with an excellent research 
track record for up to two lectureship positions. It is anticipated that the successful applicants 
will contribute to research and teaching in the area of Robotics.

Current areas of focus in the Centre for Robotics Research (CRR) include biomedical robotics, 
bio-inspired robotics, soft robotics, robot topology and algorithms, autonomous grasping and 
manipulations, and multi-modal sensing for robotic perception and haptics. CRR also has close 
collaborations with King's-affiliated hospitals and various EU partners through a number of FP7 
funded projects. An ability to help build links to other groups, for example to Agents & 
Intelligent Systems, or to contribute to the broader teaching needs of the Department, may be 
deemed to be an advantage. Applications from outstanding researchers in other areas of Informatics
will also be considered, if they can contribute significantly to the development of the Department.

The Department of Informatics was formed in August 2010 from the previous Department of Computer 
Science, incorporating the Centre for Robotics Research and the Centre for Telecommunications 
Research, as part of the new School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences. These appointments are 
part of a strategic growth of the Department, and provide an opportunity for outstanding 
researchers to contribute to, and help shape the direction of, the Department in its new form.

Applicants for the lectureships must have a PhD, an excellent publication record, and the ability 
to attract research funding. 
Appointment at the level of Senior Lecturer may be possible for suitably qualified candidates. 
All applicants must have the enthusiasm and commitment required to enhance the research standing 
of the new department, and to make a full contribution to teaching and administrative activities.

The appointment will be made, dependent on relevant qualifications and experience, within the 
Grade 6/7 scale, currently 33,193 to 47,659, per annum, inclusive of 2,323 London Allowance, 
per annum.

This is a full-time, permanent position.
