Research Associate in Biorobotics

Centre of Bioengineering
Department of Engineering

Salary Grade £30,594 to £35,469 p.a.

Available immediately until 30 June 2010 with the possibility of extension

Ref: SEN00002

The postholder will undertake and deliver research in the integration and mobile robotics aspects of the EU Research Grant "Biosynthetic Infochemical Communication (iChem)". The Research Associate will be responsible for original and further development of the biosynthetic components and their integration forming a mobile robotics platform that uses infochemical communication. This will include real-time implementation and testing of neuromorphic models of antennal lobe processing with the mobile robotics platform and development of real-time algorithms to support chemically guided behaviours in mobile robots. The evaluation and assessment of chemical information transmission supported by a infochemical communication system is also a key aim.

The post will be based at Leicester but will also involve some travel within Europe. Applicants should have a PhD (or close to completing a PhD) in a relevant area and a background in autonomous robotics, computational neuroscience and/or neuromorphic engineering. Experience in real-time mobile robotics implementations and computer programming and hardware development is essential.

Closing Date: 25 August 2009 (late applications can be sent by email)
