Job Board

Researcher Officer / Senior Research Officer (Visual Place Recognition)

The School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Essex is a large and dynamic department in the Faculty of Science and Health. The School is internationally known for its research in a range of areas and offers excellent education to its students and is now seeking to make two appointments at Research Officer and/or Senior Research Officer level.

You will support the Embedded and Intelligent Systems Laboratory's work on computer/robot vision systems in the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, as part of the recently awarded RICE Project funded by the EPSRC National Centre for Nuclear Robotics Flexible Partnership Fund. The RICE project brings together National Centre for Nuclear Robotics (University of Essex), Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (Queensland University of Technology, Australia), and University of Nevada (Reno, USA) for groundbreaking research in the area of visual place recognition for robotics in extreme environments, more specifically underground mining and nuclear decommissioning. It is a dedicated research programme combined with networking activities, including short-term and longer exchange visits of researchers and student placements.  
 

The specific focus of the post is to aid in the production of the deliverables associated with the RICE Project in conjunction with our partners, the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (Queensland University of Technology), and University of Nevada (Reno). The project will address the specific research needed for the challenging problem of robust vision to develop robotic vision algorithms to enable robots to perceive their environments and consequently act purposefully under the incredible range of environmental conditions possible, including low light, rain, snow, ice sleet, fog, smoke, dust, wind, glare and heat. You will get a chance to work closely with Prof Michael Milford, Prof Kostas Alexis, Prof Klaus McDonald-Maier and Dr Shoaib Ehsan on the RICE project.

Tenure Track Faculty Positions

The Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver campus) is inviting applications for at least three positions at the rank of Assistant Professor.  We invite applications from candidates of outstanding scientific talent in each of three categories:

  1. artificial intelligence or machine learning; 
  2. systems, including computer architecture, networking and database systems; 
  3. all other areas of computer science. Appointment at a higher rank will be considered for an applicant of exceptional qualifications.

UBC Computer Science ranks among the top departments in North America, with a strong record of excellence in research and in graduate and undergraduate teaching. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2020.

A PhD in Computer Science or a related area is required. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related area by the start date and must demonstrate evidence of research success and a high potential to be leaders in their research field. Successful candidates will develop and maintain an internationally-recognized research program and are expected to effectively supervise graduate students, collaborate with other faculty members, obtain external funding, teach computer science courses for undergraduate and graduate students, and actively participate in departmental activities. The potential of an applicant's research program to complement and extend the existing research and teaching strengths of the department will be an important factor in selection.

Interested applicants should submit a CV, a research statement, a teaching statement, and letters from at least three references. The teaching statement should include a record of teaching interests and experience. Applicants should also include a statement describing your experience working with a diverse student body, as well as your past, present, and/or future contributions to creating/advancing a culture of equity and inclusion on campus or within your discipline.
