Ref: 17/105412

School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

We seek highly qualified candidates, to commence in 2017, to build and grow innovative, mission-led research programmes which make significant contributions in tackling real-world problems, including Global Challenges highlighted by Queen’s, by identifying and enabling new forms of interdisciplinary research and education. This recruitment is central to our ambitious expansion plans, part of major investment from the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, helping us deliver against Queen’s Vision 2020 and beyond.

You will join the recently established Pioneer Research Programme (PRP) in Intelligent Autonomous Manufacturing Systems hosted by the Energy, Power and Intelligent Control (EPIC) research cluster in the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. This PRP is run in conjunction with academics from the Schools of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, Psychology, and Maths & Physics.

Your experience of bridging the gap between theory and application in areas such as industry 4.0, collaborative robotics, cobotics, design and control of hybrid and parallel manipulators, robotics for hazardous environments, or control technology for energy efficiency and waste heat recovery, will be instrumental in allowing you to contribute at a senior level to this developing programme. We are particularly interested in applicants who can contribute strongly in the areas of cognitive robotics and flexible autonomous systems, distributed intelligence and networked control, or real-time embedded systems and control, and who have a track record of engaging with industry.

You will inspire students and facilitate motivational learning, supported by world-class teaching and research facilities, and will work with engineering and commercial teams to translate your research to real-world impact. 

Queen’s is in the top 1% of Universities globally and 1st in the UK for IP commercialisation. The University is a member of the Russell Group and is 4th in the UK for research in Electronics and Electrical Engineering. We offer superb terms and conditions and a family friendly working environment. The School holds an Investors in People accreditation, a Health and Wellbeing Good Practice Award, and a Silver Athena SWAN Award.
