The College of Engineering is seeking to appoint a highly motivated individual with expertise in fundamental and applied areas relating to human movement, performance and localisation, and associated interaction with the computer/machine interface. The post will complement multi-disciplinary groups working within our Systems and Process Engineering, and our Future Manufacturing research centres, on development of sensors and analytics for human performance assessment, both for individual and for cohorts in a range of applications – health, sports and workplace. We invite applicants with expertise in technology-focused research, especially involving AI implementation and/or human-machine interactions, addressing quantification of motion and localisation patterns, and biomechanics applied to human populations within a workplace/factory setting, to apply. Applicants expertise should complement the existing work in Swansea engineering on objective profiling of fundamental movement skills, assessment of motion patterns using wearable sensors, development of future manufacturing technologies, and their use in such an environment, and associated analytics for high performance. We are especially interested in the areas of wearable motion capture systems, machine learning approaches to analysis of time series data, implementation of sensor technologies in cohort studies and data collection and integration in cloud-based information systems. Applicants should have a background in engineering, mathematics or physical science and a proven track record in quantitative analysis and computational techniques including computer vision.
Applicants must have:
-A PhD in a relevant subject area or a degree and relevant professional experience or qualification. Candidates holding Engineering undergraduate qualifications are particularly sought.
-A record of relevant research outputs and dissemination in quality publications or other media Appointments will be made at Senior Lecturer or Associate Professor Level, according to the experience of the candidate.
This post will contribute to the IMPACT operation. IMPACT (Innovative Materials, Processing And Numerical Technologies) has been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government and Swansea University. IMPACT will deliver a research centre in a new purpose built facility with state-of-the-art equipment, providing a sustainable, highly competitive, world-class resource and capacity and driving innovation.
