Two posts vacant: Professor and Lectureship in Robotics
University of Birmingham, UK

The University of Birmingham is making a multi-million pound
investment to create a multi-disciplinary centre covering the fields
of robotics, cognition and neuroscience.  The Centre for Computational
Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics (CN-CR) will encompass work from
understanding of brain function to the development of advanced robotic

We are therefore seeking a Professorial Chair in Robotics, together
with an associated lectureship. These complement five appointments
(two Chairs and three lectureships) being made in Computational

Applications are encouraged in a broad range of areas aligned with
intelligent robotics and computational vision. These include:
cognitive or software architectures for autonomous, intelligent
robots, planning for robotics, SLAM, navigation and spatial cognition,
technologies for human robot interaction, robot vision, computational
or machine vision, evolutionary robotics, bio-inspired and bio-
plausible robotics, humanoid robotics, robot learning, robotic
manipulation, and automated diagnosis for robot systems.
