Social Robotics post at University of Glasgow

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer

University of Glasgow - Research Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology


Salary: £41,255 to £55,389 per annum

Hours: Full Time

Contract Type: Permanent

Placed on: 21st January 2016

Closes: 6th March 2016

Job Ref: 012096

The University of Glasgow aims to develop a world-class research emphasis in social robotics, shared between the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology and the School of Computing Science. Within the Institute, we aim to appoint a new member of staff who will significantly develop our research presence in this area. The appointment can be at Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level, dependent on the applicant’s credentials.

Potential candidates should perform research in social neuroscience, computational neuroscience, social cognition, grounded cognition, or a related field that bears on social interaction and social robotics. Examples of relevant research areas include facial or bodily mirroring, theory of mind (intention attribution), the perception of agency, coordinated social action, etc. Primary qualifications for the position include research excellence, together with leadership potential for moving collaborative research on social robotics forward. Commitment to social robotics in previous and current research will be weighed positively.

The candidate’s research program should align with the strategic objectives of the Centre for Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (cSCAN), and should complement our existing expertise in social signal processing, interactive communication, and/or grounded cognition. The Centre has excellent research facilities, including 4-D face motion capture, whole body motion capture, a variety of eye-tracking facilities, together with state-of-the-art neuroimaging facilities for fMRI, MEG, EEG and TMS associated with the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi). As part of the University of Glasgow’s Social Robotics Initiative, the successful applicant will have excellent opportunities for collaborating with computer scientists and engineers in the College of Science and Engineering, with access to their robotic facilities and resources.
