[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Postdoctoral position: AI Planning/marine robotics/Oceanography, Trondheim, Norway

Kanna Rajan-2
Postdoctoral Position in Automated Planning/Execution for Marine Robotics
Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway
Deadline: March 26th, 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.
This position is related to a highly interdisciplinary project which targets fundamental research questions in the fields of Autonomous control, and Oceanography. The project aims to image, process and analyze plankton images taken from the upper water­ column controlled by an embedded automated planning/execution system on an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), for goal driven commanding.

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 PhD in computer science, artificial intelligence, mathematics, or a similar field with a solid background in mathematics – the PhD should have been completed within the last 5 years at most
-  Extensive programming experience in C/C++, Python and Matlab
- Demonstrated ability to translate deep theory into practice
- A solid publication track record in peer-reviewed journals and conferences
- A background in robotics and/or control would be a distinct advantage
- A keen appreciation of upper water column biology will be a plus
- The candidate must be willing and able to go to sea extensively and work in the field

The deadline for application is March 26th, 2018. All candidates should send their applications via the web site below. Candidates who will complete and defend their Phd by Summer 2018 are welcome. Women and minorities are particularly welcome.

Work environment:

Norwegian salaries and benefits are generous and Trondheim <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__trondheim.com_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=CXuZen2P0Q3UK6HVviAEOmVIuvP1gSK7VAjnntkTzqU&s=GGw4T8gphFiI11UTzxU2NgRoniR6zqQF2ocA2RzQ0hA&e=>  is a university town on Trondheimsfjord, connected via a high density air link to Oslo, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Stockholm. English is the standard means of communication both at the university and in multi-cultural Trondheim. The weather is strongly modulated by the Gulf Stream passing by the Norwegian west coast just outside the fjord. Skiing and outdoor activities abound.
