Faculty: Faculty of Engineering Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University? The Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering are seeking Research Associate in Robot Programming, which is a rare opportunity to contribute to the development reasoning programs to controlsemi-autonomous robots for the nuclear industry, where the hazardous radioactive environment needs intelligent robots to handle and process disposed materials. One of the main challenges is communication between the robots and their operators. You will work on the development of logic-programming-based human robot interactions and demonstrations using techniques such as augmented reality, haptic devices and natural language interfaces for passing on knowledge to the robots about material properties and what the robots should do with the materials. You should hold (or be close to completing) a PhD in a relevant area of computer science, applied mathematics or engineering (or have the equivalent experience). While you will have an opportunity to build on your own development experience and strength to contribute to robotics, you will also contribute to Sheffield’s reputations as the leading centre of control system science and systems engineering for robotics. We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development. We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect.
