Postdoctoral Position in Automated Planning/Execution for Marine Robotics
Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway
Deadline: Feb 20th, 2018
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Postdoctoral position in Automated Planning/Execution working at the Institute for Engineering Cybernetics (ITK), at the Norwegian Univ. of Science and Tech (NTNU), Trondheim, on the Research Council Norway funded, AILARON project is available with an immediate start.

The project is about pulling together embedded machine vision with Learning to track plankton species in space and time using an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). We aim to couple a new plankton imager, with machine learned taxa using in-situ image processing with a compact hydro-dynamic model coupled to a model-based planning/execution system onboard a AUV.  This is a highly inter-disciplinary venture working with biologists and biological and physical oceanographers in Trondheim and Portugal.

This project lies within an ecosystem of embedded robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Control Theory, Machine Vision, Remote Sensing and data analytics, focused on the ocean sciences for the study of the changing climate.  SmallSats (space), aerial (UAVs), surface (USVs) and underwater (AUVs) vehicles for coordinated oceanographic observations are the basis to observe the changing oceans over large spatio-temporal scales — this project is at the micro end of the observational spectrum.

Qualifications:

The candidate must have:

- a strong background in AI Planning, and automated reasoning, interests in Machine Learning and Vision will be a plus
- strong programming skills in C++, C, Python and Java is essential
- a strong publication record in peer-reviewed journals and conferences
- a deep desire to work across traditional disciplinary lines and to have societal impact
- willing and able to work in the field and go to sea
- a strong desire to work in teams, be articulate and communicate well

The deadline for application is February 20th, 2018. All candidates should send their applications via the web site below. Candidates who will complete and defend their Phd by May 2018 are welcome. Women and minorities are particularly welcome.
