The School of Science and Technology is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in Computer Sciencefor a fixed-term appointment.
The position is in Computer Science.
The researcher is to be based at Örebro University's Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS, http://www.oru.se/aass), which carries out multi-disciplinary research at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, computer vision, computer science, and measurement technology. Our research in general is carried out in close partnership with world-leading corporations such as Volvo, Epiroc, Scania, Husqvarna and Bosch, as well as with the public sector; and our research on the development of perception and planning systems for mobile robots is recognized world-wide.
Our aim with this new recruitment is to further strengthen our research competence within Computer Science, and in particular in topics related to the integration of automated planning, coordination and control for multi-robot systems. The focus for this position will be on systems composed of multiple robotic arms. The position provides the opportunity to work on an exciting and practically relevant problem, namely, automated planning for multiple-boom drill rigs in underground mining. Robotic platforms provided for carrying out the research include three Franka-Emika Panda robots. Access to an Epiroc Boomer platform will also be provided for limited testing.
The appointment as a postdoctoral researcher is intended to enable persons who have recently been awarded their doctoral degree, to consolidate and develop primarily their research skills. [Solid theoretical background in one or more of the following topics is required: automated planning and scheduling, robot motion planning, robot control, multi-agent/multi-robot systems. The candidate shall be engaged in both research and integration work, and is expected to produce both scientific publications and project demonstrators. We therefore seek candidates with:
The candidate will be required to work closely with our industrial partners Epiroc, Zinkgruvan and the Alfred Nobel Science Park, engaging in problem elicitation and demonstration activities.
It is not necessary to be familiar with the Swedish language, but proficiency in written/spoken English is mandatory.
Eligible for the appointment as postdoctoral researcher are applicants holding a doctoral degree in Computer Science or in related subject areas. The doctoral degree should have been awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline. Candidates who have obtained their doctoral degree prior to that may however also be considered if special grounds exist (leave of absence due to illness, parental leave, clinical duties, an elected position in a trade union, or other similar circumstances).
General assessment criteria include good interpersonal skills and an ability to cooperate as well as the ability and suitability otherwise required to perform the duties well. Particular importance shall be attached to the qualities enabling the candidate to contribute to the future development of both research and education. A demonstrated ability and desire to pursue an academic career is also of importance.
The assessment of the candidates is based on previous research and publication records and the suitability to the topics outlined above, as well as demonstrated programming and deployment skills.
Good communication skills in English, both written and spoken, is a requirement.
The position is a position for a fixed term of two years. The salary depends on the successful candidate’s qualifications and experience.
