Postdoc Fellowship and PhD studentship -- Intelligent Sensor Fusion

Postdoc Fellowship and PhD studentship -- Intelligent Sensor Fusion

Fusion of Sensor Data with Buried Asset Records

Applications are invited for an ESPRC funded studentship and a
Postdoctoral Fellow, to be based in the RAE 5-rated School of
Computing to work on a new EPSRC funded project entitled Mapping the
underworld: multi-sensor device creation, assessment, protocols. This
is a joint project with the Universities of Birmingham, Bath and
Southampton. Its aim is the creation of a multisensor device to detect
buried utility assets. Leeds is responsible for the work package on
Fusion of Sensor Data with Buried Asset Records in which the sensor
data will be intelligently fused with the expectations generated from
integrated utility records being created in a complementary project.

Further details are available at:

For the studentship, applicants should note that fees are only covered
at the UK/EU rate, not at the overseas rate -- applicants would be
required to make up the difference out of their own resources.
