The Department of Engineering Science intends to appoint an Associate Professor in Engineering Science (Robotics) from 1st September 2018 or as soon as possible after that. The successful candidate will work at the Department of Engineering Science (Central Oxford) and will be offered a Tutorial Fellowship at Brasenose College under arrangements described in the Job Description. The combined University and College salary will be on a scale currently from £46,336 pa plus additional benefits including free accommodation in housing provided by the college or a housing allowance of £10,237 pa and a fellows allowance of up to £1,700 pa (see Job Description for full details). The post of Associate Professor can be an entry level permanent academic position, and can also be held by more senior academic staff, some of whom hold the title of Full Professor for which an allowance of £2,700 pa is payable. The appointment will be initially for five years at which point, upon completion of a successful review, the post-holder will be eligible for reappointment to the retiring age.

This appointment will add further strength to the Department’s internationally-renowned research in robotics, which has been located in the Mobile Robotics Group for the past decade. This post is part of the expansion of the Mobile Robotics Group into the Oxford Robotics Institute, which involves the creation of new academic posts and a move into expanded accommodation in Central Oxford. The Associate Professor will build a research group developing algorithms and systems for machine perception (laser, vision, radar), planning, reconstruction, and platform control.

The successful candidate will be expected to engage in original research in the field of robotics, to secure research funding and to assist in the teaching of their subject at both undergraduate and graduate level. Undergraduate teaching may include lectures and practical classes, and the supervision of undergraduate design and project work.

She or he will have a strong background applicable to research in robotics, including a doctorate in the subject or a cognate discipline, a proven research record of high quality at international level, significant future research potential, and the ability to attract research funding and develop an independent programme of research. The successful candidate will have the ability to teach effectively, both at undergraduate and graduate levels, and have excellent interpersonal skills for undertaking tutorial teaching.
