Postdoc position - School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh

A research associate position is available in the Insect Robotics group to 
work on how ultraviolet and polarised light processing in insects can be 
applied to robotics, as part of the EPSRC funded project “Exploiting 
invisible cues for low-cost outdoor robot navigation”. You must either 
already have a PhD in a relevant area or be nearing completion of your PhD 
studies, and must have a track record of related publications. Excellent 
skills in programming are essential. Candidates with expertise in 
modelling of sensory and neural systems, with experience of both virtual

signal analysis methods will be preferred. Ideally, candidates would also 
be familiar with invertebrate brain and behaviour research, and/or robot 
navigation methods such as SLAM.
