Postdoctoral Research Associate on Indoor Positioning Systems for Emergency Responders (2 posts)

Applications for this vacancy closed on 2 August 2017 at 12:00PM
<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p></p><p>We are pleased to announce an opening for two full-time Postdoctoral Research Associates (PDRA) on Indoor Positioning Systems for Emergency Responders for up to 2 years, with the possibility of extension for up to 3 years. You would be expected to start from September 2017, and no later than December 2017.</p><br> <p>This project aims to develop pervasive methods that work everywhere - from high rise buildings to deep basements - and which can locate responders in 3D with meter level accuracy. The focus will be on reliability even in adverse conditions. A variety of sensor modalities will be combined, ranging from inertial and visual odometry to 3D localisation using low frequency magnetic fields.</p><br> <p>As a Postdoctoral Research Associate on this project, you will be conducting original research within Oxford's Sensor Networks group together with Profs Niki Trigoni and Andrew Markham, and will benefit from close collaboration with two fire service departments (in the UK and in the US). You will be expected to design, implement and test indoor positioning algorithms, perform experiments at the training facilities of fire services, report results, write papers, and present your work to public safety shareholders.</p><br> <p>The primary selection criteria are a doctoral degree (or close to completion) in Computer Science, Information Engineering or Electrical Engineering. You must also have excellent writing, communication, presentation, and organisation skills, and a strong publication record in any of the following: vision/inertial/magnetic/radio localisation systems, probabilistic state estimation, map matching and simultaneous localisation and mapping, and machine learning approaches to localisation (e.g. deep neural networks).</p><br> <p>If you have any questions about the positions please email Professor Niki Trigoni (niki.trigoni@cs.ox.ac.uk) or Andrew Markham (andrew.markham@cs.ox.ac.uk).</p><br> <p>The closing date for applications is 12 noon on 2 August 2017. Interviews will take place the week commencing 7 August.</p> </div>
