Job description

We are seeking an enthusiastic and talented Robotics Engineer to work on an innovative collaboration between AB Precision (Poole) Limited and University of Plymouth.

A unique opportunity for a recently qualified Robotics Engineer to work on a joint project under Knowledge Transfer Partnership, between AB Precision (Poole) Limited and the University of Plymouth. The key objective of this role is to develop enhanced automation, mobile navigation and situational awareness for remotely operated vehicles for the Defence, Security, Emergency Services and Nuclear markets.

You will be working collaboratively under the support of a team of Academics including Dr Mario Gianni, Dr Sanjay Sharma and Dr Asiya Khan.

You will have the ability to work within standards and regulatory systems, be a team player and be good at collaborative working.
