Three researcher positions (up to 3 years duration) are available at University of Bristol, University of Southampton and Trinity College Dublin to join the EPSRC-SFI funded project “ROBOCONE: intelligent robotics for next generation ground investigation and design”. This is an interdisciplinary project aiming to bring robotics and whole-life design to in situ soil characterisation and geotechnical analysis.
The Bristol team will focus on the mechanical development of a new site investigation tool and its preliminary laboratory testing; the Southampton team has a focus on numerical analysis; the Dublin team on calibration chamber and field testing. However, all appointees and research teams will be closely collaborating and involved across the project.
The Bristol team includes Dr Andrea Diambra, Dr Andrew Conn, Prof. Erdin Ibraim and Prof. George Mylonakis; the Southampton project team includes Prof. David White, Prof. Susan Gourvenec and Dr Benjamin Cerfontaine; the Dublin team is led by Dr David Igoe.
