<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p></p><p>We are pleased to announce an opening for a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) on Indoor Positioning Systems for Emergency Responders. This post is fixed-term for up to 12 months initially, subsequent to the completion of this 12 month fixed-term contract, the successful candidate may have the potential of moving on to a similar project for a further 2 year period. You would be expected to start from June/July 2020 if possible.</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 PDRA on this project, you will be conducting original research within Oxford's Sensor Networks group together with Professors 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 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 (<a rel="nofollow" href="mailto:niki.trigoni@cs.ox.ac.uk">niki.trigoni@cs.ox.ac.uk</a>) or Andrew Markham (<a rel="nofollow" href="mailto:andrew.markham@cs.ox.ac.uk">andrew.markham@cs.ox.ac.uk</a>).</p><br> <p>Whilst the role is a Grade 7 position, we would be willing to consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 6 (&#163;29,176 - &#163;34,804 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.</p><br> <p>The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 18 June 2020.</p> </div>
