Research Associate in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - Manchester, UK

School of MACE, University of Manchester (6 month post, £30-37k per annum).

The GAMMA project is consortium of North West Universities, BAESYSTEMS, NNL and NWAA seeking to stimulate the growth of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) industry in the UK through development of innovative mission system architectures and software.

You will join the existing team at Manchester for the last six months of the project. You should have UAV-related knowledge, skills and interest, with experience in at least one of the areas of UAV sensor integration, UAV flight testing and development of embedded software for UAV applications. A PhD (or equivalent) or an equivalent level of practical experience/skills is expected.

Ideally we're looking for someone with C/C++ and Python experience who is familiar with embedded (both Linux & metal) development. You would also be expected to advise our SMEs, meet with partners and assist with flight testing. Experience with UAVs would be a definite plus.
