>The following is an advertisement for an APA in Marine Robotics.
>Please forward to suitable candidate/s.
>Australian Postgraduate Award (Industry) in Marine Robotics
>This scholarship is funded by an ARC grant and will provide support for 3
>years on a full-time basis for a research project leading to a PhD. This
>project has as its goal the development of algorithms and methods capable of
>modeling unstructured, reef environments using data collected by an
>autonomous robotic system capable of surveying the Great Barrier Reef. The
>Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) currently has a small research
>Umanned Underwater Vehicle capable of undertaking such survey work. Under
>the proposed project, this vehicle will be equipped with appropriate sensors
>(such as vision systems, sonar, depth and temperature sensors). The grant
>will support an APA (I) whose aim will be the construction of comprehensive
>models of the state of the reef over which the vehicle will operate.
>Applicants should have an Honours 1 or 2A degree in mechatronic or electical
>engineering or computer science. Experience/background in software
>development, electronics and/or mechanical design would be an advantage.
>Alternatively, candidates with a background in biological sciences with
>experience in the study of coral reefs and an interest in computational
>aspects of their study would also be welcome. Applicants must be Australian
>citizens, Australian permanent residents or New Zealand citizens. The
>scholarship stipend is $23,886.
