The University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a Lecturer within Lincoln Agri-Robotics (LAR), the world's first global centre of excellence in agricultural robotics, recently funded by UKRI's Research England. Lincoln Agri-Robotics (LAR) expands the successful interdisciplinary collaboration between two of the University’s leading research groups: the Lincoln Institute of Agri-Food Technology (LIAT) and the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems (L-CAS). 

This ground-breaking centre will make an impactful difference by deploying robotics to address the global challenges facing crop-based agriculture, such as climate change, population growth, political pressures affecting migration, and the demographics of an ageing population. 

This role is interdisciplinary, focusing on the Social and Managerial aspects of the development of new technology in the Agri-Business, specifically Agri-robotics. LAR are particularly interested in the social, economic, human resource and ethical aspects associated with the development and integration of agri-robotics within the crop-based agriculture sector.

The post holder will work collaboratively with colleagues from Lincoln International Business School (LIBS). LIBS is based at the Brayford (city) campus and is engaged in the delivery of excellent research and research dissemination (notably in the fields of accounting, finance and economics, management, human resources and organisations, supply chain and operations and marketing), which benefits businesses and policy-makers; while at the same time deepening understanding and contributing to teaching. LIBS engages actively with a wide array of collaborative partners drawn from other universities, business, non-profit, government and non-government organisations locally, regionally and across the world.

Background expertise in the agri-food sector is preferable but not essential. We are interested in applicants with track records that might include or be related to expertise in: the social aspects of technology integration; the productivity impacts of new technologies; behavioural studies on barriers and challenges to technology adoption; operational research on system optimisation, etc.
