Agri-food Technology is central to the University of Lincoln’s strategy and the Lincoln Institute of Agri-food Technology (LIAT) provides a University wide focus for Agri-food research and related activities. The University is a leading institution for research and development in the field of Agri-food robotics and a new Agri-food Robotics Research Centre under development.
The post holder will work as part of a team focused on the development of robotic solutions for the Agri-food sector in close collaboration with academics from the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems. The role will involve working on several strategic projects together with small agri-food businesses which include machine vision systems for crop identification, fleet management of agricultural robots, autonomous control and navigation of agricultural equipment, etc.
We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral Research Fellow with relevant experience and/or a keen interest in a number of research areas, including (not exclusively):
- 2D/3D robot and machine perception;
- software engineering in robotics;
- autonomous fleet management and scheduling;
- autonomous control and navigation;
- learning for autonomous robots;
- agricultural robotics.
Applicants should have, or expect to soon obtain, a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant area. You must have excellent mathematical and coding skills (C++/Python, ROS). The Research Fellowship offers the opportunity to engage in international collaboration within an ambitious team, to work with state-of-the-art robotic hardware and software, and to benefit from excellent support to produce and disseminate original research contributions in the leading international conferences and journals. Evidence of authorship of research outputs of international standing is essential, as is the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team, including excellent written and spoken communication skills. Opportunities to mentor and co-supervise PhD students working in the project team will also be available to outstanding candidates.
The post is one of several posts being establish to secure the success of The Greater Lincolnshire Agri-food Innovation Platform (GLAFIP) project, the background to which is provided in the job description.
As an institutional Athena SWAN Bronze Award holder we are committed to advancing gender equality in STEM, therefore female applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.
We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
