Course: Agent Based Systems

Teaching Assistant

Time in Year:  
Course runs in Semester 2, some preparation in Sem 1 needed.

Number of Posts:


Teaching Assistant for Agent-Based Systems, required for (1) assisting the course lecturer with updating course material (lecture slides, tutorial exercises, web pages), (2) designing, testing and marking two practical exercises (this may involve delivering a couple of lab demonstration sessions to introduce the practicals). See the course web page and last year's practicals as examples of possible exercise topics.

The job could be split into parts (1) and (2) as these are unrelated. For part (1), preference will be given to candidates who have a good knowledge of Java and Prolog as the practicals will involve use of the Jason Agent Programming language. For part (2), preference will be given to candidates with some background in the area. Someone who is keen to learn, partly in their own time, would be considered too.

This post is paid at grade UE06, currently upwards of £12.50/hr.  Double time for tutoring.

Total Hours:  up to 80 hours (depending on student numbers)
