Research Assistant/associate in Embedded Multi-sensor Computing Systems

A Postdoc position is available at University of Cambridge. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply. The deadline for applying is October 01, 2018.

A position exists for a Research Assistant/Associate in the Department of Engineering, to work in the Physical Computation Laboratory, on embedded multi-sensor computing systems. The duration of the position is 12 months in the first instance with possibility for extension.

The post holder will be located in West Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, UK.

The key responsibilities and duties are to investigate new approaches to sensor signal processing in sensor-rich systems. The research will build on a state-of-the-art multi-sensor embedded computing research platform developed by the Cambridge Physical Computation Laboratory, with over 20 sensors integrated into a footprint of about 1 square inch.

Applicants must have (or be close to obtaining) a PhD in electrical/computer engineering, computer science, or related fields.

The skills, qualifications, and experience required to perform the role include an ability to formulate new approaches to research challenges and a strong electronics and signal processing background to support research implementation tasks (including an ability to create embedded firmware for custom research hardware platforms and experience with sensor interfacing).

The Physical Computation Laboratory ( is a new and growing research group that investigates how to use an understanding of the physical world and the flexibility of sensing systems to improve the efficiency of computing systems that interact with nature. We conduct fundamental research augmented with hardware prototypes to get the results of our research out into the world.

Appointment at Research Associate level is dependent on having a PhD. Those who have submitted but not yet received their PhD will be appointed at Research Assistant level, which will be amended to Research Associate once the PhD has been awarded.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 12 months in the first instance.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.

Please ensure that you upload your Curriculum Vitae (CV) and a covering letter in the Upload section of the online application.
