This post offers challenging and stimulating opportunities for researchers with a background in modelling and simulation of human behaviour for autonomous cars. You will have the chance to work and technically manage activities of a prestigious project funded through a well-known competition at the UK governmental level on autonomous cars with prestigious industrial organisations. You will work very closely with these industrials. Working on other industrially funded projects related to autonomous vehicles is also part of the duties of this post.
Signals and Autonomy Group is one of the six groups of Centre for Electronic Warfare, Information and Cyber. Internationally reputable, the Group covers a wide variety of topics encompassing; Vision based Navigation systems, Autonomous Vehicles, Security, Automatic Object Recognition, 2D/3D Mapping, and Guidance and Control Techniques.
Main responsibilities include:
- To perform research in Human Behavior Modelling for Autonomous cars
- To publish high quality journals/reports based on the research carried out
- To manage/participate in the daily basis interaction with our research and industrial partners
- To supervise practical work where it is part of the intended project or other projects in the Signal and Autonomy Group
You will have a PhD in appropriate field (or nearing completion); significant expertise in data analysis techniques and/or machine learning techniques from industrial or academic exposure; experience of publishing in high quality journals and Matlab/C/C++ programming proficiency skills.
A PhD with an application on machine learning or modelling or simulation; experience in autonomous cars research; expertise into Neural Networks; vehicle driver modelling and simulation; data acquisition from Human trials and familiarity with cars simulation software exposure is desirable.
