An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Research Associate to work on a newly-funded H2020 European project on testing for robotic systems within the Department of Computer Science. You will work at the intersection of software engineering, testing, machine learning and robotics and will contribute to the design and implementation of methods and tools capable of assuring safety and security properties of mobile robots. More specifically, the Research Associate position is on developing robustness and simulation-based testing techniques to assess safety and security properties of robots and support the analysis of robustness and resilience of system designs and implementations.
You will be part of a large and internationally leading team who specialises in software engineering and it is part of the Department of Computer Science. The team has a substantial track record in software engineering research, and in the past has been very successful at delivering research results as part of big, collaborative research projects. The team includes five permanent members of academic staff, five research associates, and 20 PhD/EngD students. It is highly supportive and encourages cross-project collaboration, especially on joint publications and developing new research projects.
The post is available on a fixed-term basis for 36 months. The start date is February 2021
