A postgraduate research position is open at Ifremer’s Underwater Systems Department for an early stage researcher (ESR) to develop image processing and sensor fusion algorithms for underwater image mosaicking. The candidate will join the European research training network FreesubNET and contribute to the development of a challenging underwater exploration application, with tasks including:

·     AUV (Autonomous Unerwater Vehicle) based image acquisition

·     Image processing

·     Sensor fusion

·     Mosaicking and georeferencing of collected heterogeneus data

Final testing and evaluation will based on a hardware-in-the-loop implementation using the dedicated facilities and vehicles at Ifremer’s Toulon base.

The successful candidate will be also offered the possibility to contribute to further development activities carried out at IFREMER in the field of underwater robotics.
