Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD Scholarship in the fields of
Autonomous Navigation, at the College of Engineering and Computer Science
(CECS) of Australian National University (ANU), Australia. The topic of the
grant is:

*** Project title: Simultaneous Localisaton and Image Fusion (SLIF) for
robotic exploration ***
*** Application deadline: 31st January 2009 ***

The project is to investigate the use of Inertial Navigation System (INS)
and Visual Odometry (VO) for precise aerial navigation which is crucial in
robotic explorations. The position is to commence in March 2009 or as soon
as possible thereafter.

Applicants should have at least upper second class honours from a recognised
university. The scholarship is valued at AUD$26,140 p.a. (tax exempt). The
