This is an exceptional opportunity to join the University of Manchester’s developing activities in Robotics and AI.
The Department of Computer Science is investing for growth in the Computer Science aspects of Robotics and AI systems. You will contribute to our international portfolio of research in robotics, verification, and AI, and be willing to engage across discipline boundaries to apply your work. Applications are welcomed in any area related to verification of Robotics and AI systems, including for example: verification of autonomous systems; formal methods for robotics; verifiable robot ethics; verification and testing of machine learning; engineering of multi-agent systems. We particularly welcome applications from researchers applying their work in safety-critical applications of robotics and AI.
You will be part of a pan-university community contributing to Robotics and AI, including both robotics (Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering) and machine learning (Department of Computer Science), as well as leading verification work on formal methods (Department of Computer Science).
The University is a partner of the Alan Turing Institute, the UK national institute for AI. As a Manchester staff member you will be fully supported in application to become a Turing Fellow, with the benefits of facilitated collaboration with top institutes across the UK.
The Department of Computer Science is a leading research institution, and values exceptional researchers. You will publish to the highest standards, secure external research funding, pursue real-world impact, and contribute to the PhD training programmes within the Department.
The Department values exceptional teachers. You will play a key role in maintaining our reputation as an institute of learning ” designing and delivering innovative UG/PG topics, both in Robotics and AI, but also across the spectrum of Computer Science. Exceptional teachers are encouraged to demonstrate this in their application.
