The Automated Planning Group seeks a talented and highly motivated postdoctoral research associate (PDRAs) to work within the ORCA Hub at Heriot-Watt’s Automated Planning Group. The successful candidates will contribute to the development, integration, and evaluation of AI planning systems for applications in the area of robotics and explainable artificial intelligence (XAI).

The PDRA will work on applications of temporal planning to robot task and mission planning, and build interfaces for plan explainability. Task and mission planning capabilities will be integrated with robot platforms (including underwater and ground-based robots) and robot simulators. Plan explainability will be used to support other project work on text/speech input and plan visualisation for human users.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to work on high-impact research with real-world applications.
