Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Robotics and Autonomous Systems Grade 8/9 (Three Posts)

University of Liverpool - Faculty of Science and Engineering - Department of Computer

Location: Liverpool
Salary: £41,526 to £66,539 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 28th September 2021
Closes: 25th October 2021
Job Ref: 034606

We are recruiting to three positions in Robotics and Autonomous Systems. We are looking for highly motivated, research-focused individuals who will undertake research of international standard and contribute to teaching in the Department of Computer Science at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Appointment at Senior Lecturer or Reader level depends on the experience and the qualifications of the successful candidates.

The appointment will be based on the proven research track-record or industrial experience of the candidates. We value research in all areas of Robotics and Autonomous Systems. This is both with respect to research that would bolster existing expertise or offers potential for interdisciplinary activity with other areas both within and outside the University. We welcome activity aligned with existing interdisciplinary research that we conduct (see below) or expansion into new areas.

Highly pertinent to this vacancy is the Department’s leading role in the newly opened Digital Innovation Facility (DIF). An environment that’s purpose-built for collaboration, the DIF facilitates opportunities for Computer Science researchers to collaborate with colleagues across the campus at Liverpool as well as collaborators and industrial partners outside the University. Our main collaborators within the University are the departments of Electrical Engineering and Electronics; Psychology, Sociology, and Law; the Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease; the Royal Liverpool University Hospital; the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital; and the Department of Chemistry, which hosts the award-winning robot scientist research project (Nature volume 583, pages 237–241, 2020) led by Professor Andy Cooper. The post-holders are expected to contribute to the further development of links between the Department and its collaborators to enable research on robotics and autonomous systems to flourish in Liverpool.

We value the diversity of our Department and welcome applications from all sectors of the community. We recognise that many individuals value flexibility in their work/life balance and we will consider applications to work on a part-time, flexible and job share basis wherever possible (a minimum of 0.5 FTE). We are working to improve the gender balance in the Department of Computer Science, and we particularly welcome applications from women.

The University has the right to close the vacancy early if it is deemed that there have been enough applications received
