As part of the strategic development of the School of Engineering, we currently have one position available for a Lecturer with expertise in Control and Instrumentation.
Applications are sought from candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and enhance existing strengths within the Cardiff School of Engineering. We are interested in applicants whose work will strengthen ongoing partnerships with related disciplines, and foster new research collaborations both within the university and beyond.
The successful applicant for this post will undertake research in related areas of control and instrumentation, with research expertise focusing on the design, development and installation of devices and systems used in manufacturing facilities and plants or robotics and autonomous systems.
Dependent on expertise the successful applicant will be based in the Robotics and Autonomous Intelligent Machines. Recent years have seen significant progress in robotics and AI (Artificial Intelligence), enabling robots and machines to accomplish challenging missions autonomously. Research in robotics and AI can generate an enormous impact on industry and society, through collaboratively developing solutions to real-world-driven challenges.
The Robotics and Autonomous Intelligent Machines (RAIM) group undertake fundamental research in autonomous navigation, manipulation, machine vision/smart sensing, and more, to create autonomous robots and intelligent systems that can tackle challenging problems in unstructured environments, including healthcare, energy, agriculture, manufacturing, and environmental science.
The successful applicant will be assigned to teach modules related to control and instrumentation and robotics or manufacturing on postgraduate and undergraduate degree programmes offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Cardiff School of Engineering, and will be expected to develop new modules when required. Supervision of both undergraduate and postgraduate students and projects is essential.
The position is full-time, 35 hours per week and open-ended.
The level of the appointment made will be dependent on the relevant experience of the candidate.
