Robotics, autonomous systems and AI have the potential to transform the way we live, travel and work – from driverless cars and remotely monitored ships to assistive robots at work, in the home and in hospitals. Our mission is to ensure that robotics, their software, and their communications are safe.
The Institute will be housed in a dedicated new facility on the University's Campus East. It will provide workspace for up to 100 people, a rooftop lab, and specialist robotics design and testing equipment. The University of York's campus will become a 'living lab' for autonomous technologies.
The Institute is committed to the development of technical staff and The University of York is a signatory of the Technician Commitment - https://www.technicians.org.uk/technician-commitment.
The Institute for Safe Autonomy is looking to appoint two full-time Electronics/Robotics Specialists to work within the institute. As part of a technical team, you will work to set-up the new facilities leading to the provision of a wide range of services provided by workshops and laboratories. All roles will encompass Health and Safety ensuring the safe and efficient running of facilities, supporting the Institutes teaching and research activities. The posts are all part of Technical Services and involve close work with the Departments of Physics, Electronic Engineering and Computer Science.
These roles present an exciting opportunity to be involved in pioneering global research and technologies, focussed around Design and verification, Assurance, Communications, and Society and Ethics in a Russell Group University.
