    The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University has an opening for a Teaching Faculty member. Teaching track faculty are responsible for teaching courses and enjoy the flexibility and opportunity to engage in broader aspects of our educational programs, including to pursue research, advise students, design, or participate in outreach programs for students and teachers, create new courses, explore and experiment with new teaching methodologies, write course materials including books and online resources or other related interests. Teaching is usually in our core courses alongside other faculty, providing critical insight on pedagogy and maintaining overall learning outcomes, but some teaching track faculty also teach in specialized areas.

    The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University was established in 1979 to conduct basic and applied research in robotics technologies relevant to industrial and societal tasks. Seeking to combine the practical and the theoretical, the Robotics Institute has diversified its efforts and approaches to robotics science while retaining its original goal of realizing the potential of the robotics field.

    Candidates should have a Ph.D. with deep expertise in robotics and a background of demonstrated excellence and dedication to teaching. Candidates must be prepared to teach extensive lecture courses at the advanced undergraduate and introductory/intermediate graduate-level and also be prepared to work with the existing faculty of the department to establish, improve, and standardize the curriculum.

    We particularly encourage applications from candidates who have a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing female and underrepresented minority students.  Applicants looking for a primarily research-based position or those who are looking to teach solely advanced courses are not a good fit for this position. Positions include Assistant Teaching Professor, Associate Teaching Professor, Teaching Professor.

    Topic: Neurocognitive Training via Child-Robot Interaction using EEG-Neurofeedback to Monitor Children's Concentration towards Improving Academic Engagement

    Applications are invited for a Ph.D. scholarship to be undertaken within the School of Physics, Engineering and Computer Science at University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, United Kingdom. The successful applicant will join an established group of Robotics and A.I. within the Computer Science Department to work with Child-Robot Interaction for Developmental Disorder Interventions.

    Applications will be accepted until September 2022. We will shortlist the candidates in early October and invite them for an online interview. We expect the selected candidate will start the research/studies no later than January 2023.

    Keywords: Cognitive (Socially Assistive) Robotics; CRI for Developmental Disorder Interventions; Computational Neuroscience; Applied Machine Learning.

    Context & Significance: Undoubtedly, assistive technology in education helps children develop necessary skills, and it also opens up opportunities for a much more fluid learning experience while they have fun. However, for many children with any kind of impairment, adapted play opportunities are often limited. Inclusion in education contributes to the physical and psychological protection of children with special needs, their families, and communities. This research project aims to find ways to advance educational therapy towards assisting the facilitation of adaptive learning-related coping and improved cognitive skill outcomes in educational settings, focusing on aiding children with attention deficit and other related disorders. This includes studies on children behaviour and interaction, effects on their quality of life, social outcomes, and influences on learning experience. By providing means of improving children’s quality of life and well-being, we may prevent future problems through a developmental cascade of early intervention.

    Objectives of the Project:  This project will investigate the use of a robot (i.e. Kaspar Robot developed at Herts) with an intelligent adaptive behaviour that, for the first time, will personalise to each child based on user profiling and their engagement via emotional response and mental states of concentration levels. Every child who requires special education deserves to have that education tailored to their own specific needs, which will be enabled by monitoring brain activity and reacting accordingly. Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) will allow acquisition of brainwave patterns for classification of concentration levels (Neurofeedback) during the engagement in an educational environment. When the child’s concentration drops or the engagement monitored via facial feedback is low (i.e., lack of attention detected), the robot will learn to adapt to the child’s needs by changing challenges or providing new stimuli such as visual and/or auditory cues. The solution will be achieved via: (i) Development of new models for brainwave classification and signature generation to provide goal-based aims to be integrated into an AI-adaptive System; (ii) Data analysis of children’s brainwaves when interacting with Kaspar Robot and digital games to identify their concentration levels and compare concentration signatures to evaluate gains; and (iii) data analysis related to social and psychological aspects, such as behaviour (e.g. emotional response and length of engagement) via child’s facial and body expressions. With that we can check whether this approach is useful for inclusion in schools, and the acceptance of new technologies by both children and professionals of education and health care. The project’s goals can only be achieved by interdisciplinary collaboration between the multiple fields of engineering and informatics (A.I & Robotics), social psychology, computational neuroscience, and education.
    Person Specification
    The successful applicant should have a first class or upper second-class honours degree or equivalent qualification in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering or other related degrees.  Preferred skill requirements include basic knowledge of one or more topics such as machine learning, bio signals computation, artificial perception and/or robotics.  We would particularly like to encourage application from women seeking to progress their academic careers. University of Hertfordshire is committed to the principles of the Athena SWAN Charter, and we pride ourselves on our vibrant, friendly, and supportive environment and family atmosphere.
