Free open Job in Wales Project Assistant/Officer (Robotics and Automation) at Swansea University

Swansea University is creating a new team of researchers to carry out applied research, to develop and to deliver collaborative R&D projects with Welsh manufacturing companies. The aim will be to develop, adapt and deploy Factory of the Future and Industry 4.0 concepts, and we are seeking talented individuals to undertake innovative research in the themes listed above.

Project Assistants at Grade 7 will carry out their own experimental or computer modelling work as part of industrially-focussed R&D projects. They will perform their own analysis and interpretation of results, and will assist with production of reports, presentations and publications as directed by the project leaders. It is expected that Project Assistants will normally have at least a good undergraduate degree or equivalent.

Swansea University has invested in a range of Kuka and Baxter robots and the successful candidate will be involved in the deployment of robotic techniques in an industrial context. This will be an opportunity for you to build experience in areas such as optimisation and path planning of 6 axis industrial robots, the design of new end effectors, collaborative robots, bionics, cyber-physical systems etc. Good experience relating to industrial robotics control, cooperation, and automated manipulation systems is required.

Candidates with control and good signal processing background are particularly welcome since the analysis of robot control system performance and human physiological signals like EEG and EMG would be desired. The experience of working with human-robot interaction (HRI) user interface and conducting HRI experiments with human subjects would be an advantage.

Project Officers at Grade 8 will manage their own technical activities in terms of applied research and industrial collaborative R&D projects with a variety of companies. It is expected that Project Officers will normally have a PhD qualification or equivalent.
