Funded PhD Positions in the "Center for Multidisciplinary Research on Signal
Processing", Universidad de Chile, Santiago, Chile.




Funded PhD positions are available with immediate effect at the University
of Chile's "Center for Multidisciplinary Research on Signal Processing
(CMRSP)" in the areas of:


1. Autonomous Robotic Navigation


2. Sensor Data Processing and Sensor Fusion


3. Short range radar based feature extraction


4. Simultaneous Localization and Map (SLAM) building.



The University of Chile has very strong research capabilities in the areas
of Robotics and Automation, Speech Processing, Astronomy, Mining  and
Volcanology. A fundamental foundation of all of these engineering
applications is signal processing, and the purpose of the CMRSP is to
provide a signal processing common framework, providing solutions in all of
these areas.


Within the "Multi-Object Estimation" component of the CMRSP, statistical
signal processing solutions to autonomous robotic applications are sought.
Successful applicants will carry out research within a team of robotics
researchers and execute experiments with outdoor terrain type vehicles and
radar, laser and vision based sensors. Particular interest in Chile is
focused on robotic applications in mines, and the successful candidates will
also take part in experiments within such challenging environments.


Applicants should possess a good bachelors and preferably masters degrees in
Engineering, Physics or a related subject. Applications will be considered
with immediate effect.
