Postdoc in Ocean Observation Technology at Technical University of Denmark

Technical University of Denmark is offering postdoctoral position in environmental sciences. This position is available for two years in the first instance. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply before the deadline: April 15, 2019.

The successful applicant will support thedevelopment of marine robotics activities at DTU Aqua. This will include integration of acoustic and water quality sensors as well as appropriate communication systems on available ROV platforms to operate in an autonomous and cooperative mode. Development of automated planning and scheduling frameworks, as well as development of adaptive sampling strategies for biotic and abiotic marine variables is required. Autonomous detection of ocean features and object identifications will be embedded on the vehicles for navigation and sampling tasks.

The postdoc will be part of a collaboration between DTU Aqua, DTU Elektro and DTU Compute as well as in support of international collaborations with, e.g., the Center for Marine Environmental Sciences (MARUM) at the University of Bremen, Germany. The postdoc position will support ongoing DTU Aqua and Elektro projects SENTINEL (cognitive robotic systems) and REMORA (modular underwater robotics). Support to teaching and supervision activities at DTU in the courses on aquatic field work and sensor integration will be required.

Candidates should have a PhD in oceanography, electronics, automation and control systems or similar qualifications with an academic level equivalent to a three-year PhD.

DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union.

The period of employment is two years and the work will primarily be carried out at the Section for Oceans and Arctic at DTU Aqua, which is located in Kongens Lyngby, Denmark.

Specific field work activities might include periods of permanence on research vessels.

The position is for two years.

Further information may be obtained from Dr. Patrizio Mariani, Leader of Observation Technology Research Group, tel.: +45 35 88 33 53.

Please submit your online application no later than15 April 2019 (local time).

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender,disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.

The research spectrum of the Section for Oceans and Arctic covers oceanography, population ecology, observation technology and the Arctic. The research into oceanography integrates biological, physical and chemical parameters' interactions in the ocean, ranging from individual plankton to regional seas. We focus on understanding the key processes that govern the structure and function of pelagic food webs, as well as climate and ecosystem interactions. The research in population ecology establishes how processes affecting individuals shape populations and ecosystems.

Deadline: April 15, 2019
