Full time starting salary is normally in the range £34,980 to £44,263 with potential progression once in post to £46,974
Fixed Term contract up to December 2026
The University of Birmingham’s School of Computer Science, in collaboration with the Alan Turing Institute, is offering a 3-year Research Fellowship on a project exploring human-agent teaming. In the 2021 UK Research Excellence Framework (REF) review of University research, Computer Science at University of Birmingham was ranked 3rd. The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.
The Research Fellow (RF) will work for 36 months. This project will explore the decision-making of individual agents and humans, and, in particular, the decision-making in teams. The focus of this project is to study how agents and humans exhibit different degrees of cooperation. In order to do so, the decision-making is modelled through various forms of Reinforcement Learning. In particular, this project seeks to deploy novel approaches to Multi-agent Reinforcement Learning. Teams could involve combinations of humans (with varying knowledge of the problem domain) and agents (with varying functionality). The goal is to explore the conditions under which optimal combinations of humans and agents can cooperate to respond to dynamic decision environments.
The responsibilities may include some but not all of the responsibilities outlined below.
