Position: Research Fellow in Underwater Imaging and Localisation
Institution: University of Southampton
Department: Boldrewood Campus
Location: Southampton, Hampshire, United Kingdom
Duties: We are looking to recruit a robotic engineer to develop probabilistic methods to localize and predict the trajectories of fleets of long-endurance, drifting seabed imaging systems. You will join a team of 8 underwater robotics researchers with expertise in marine robotics, sensor development, photogrammetry, localization and learning. The work will involve simulation, design of experiments, participation in oceanic expeditions and data analysis. The candidate will present their results at international conferences/workshops and lead writing of peer reviewed journal publications
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD (Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification.
