Software Development Research Assistant in the Embodied Systems unit

The Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Institute, University of Southern Denmark, invites applications for an engineering research assistant position with a focus on software.  The position is available from August 2018, is based in Odense and runs for up to 2 years. Further extension may be possible, depending on resourcing and demand.

The position is based in the Embodied Systems for Robotics and Learning (ESRL) unit and will support the unit's existing research and teaching activities in bio-inspired robotics, bio-robotics, medical robotics and embedded systems.  The unit has a lively programme of research in bio-robotics, with lizards, frogs, dung beetles and bats as the key animal models; we also work on legged robots based on bio-inspired principles inspired by insects, construction of camera pill systems, interactive learning tools and other embedded electronic devices. The unit's participation in the robotics and UAS educations, as well as its Learning and Experience Technology programme, frequently result in the need for new technology for teaching and research. The unit has excellent technical support and a history of building unusual and interesting experimental robots.  It has a strong collaboration with other SDU units such as Robotics, Electronics and the UAS Centre.

Creating unusual and interesting experimental robots requires a variety of technical expertise, including development of software systems for our research prototypes.  We seek a new staff member to support the unit in these areas.

Responsibilities and tasks

We seek a talented and enthusiastic engineer to assist us in the programming of our novel robot systems.  The successful applicant will:

  • develop and maintain system software for our inexpensive scalable sound recording system, including software for system calibration and communication during long-term and drone-based deployments;
  • develop embedded software for our experimental robot systems as required;
  • support research projects requiring software development or maintenance;
  • maintain, manage and extend our lab software infrastructure.

Preferred applicants have:

  • An M. Sc. degree in a relevant engineering discipline: computing, software, electronics, robotics or equivalent, with a strong software background
  • Extensive experience of setting up and managing Linux-based systems at all levels (embedded, laboratory and public server)
  • Experience with construction and programming of robotic prototypes
  • Experience of system adminstration problem solving using appropriate scripting and similar techniques

For more information about this position, please contact Professor John Hallam
