The ST Engineering-NTU Corporate Laboratory an open post-doc position in the field of robotic surveillance focusing on computer vision techniques for a joint project between NTU and ST Engineering. We seek to expand and improve the perceptual capabilities of autonomous aerial vehicles.

This project aims to solve the precise landing problem of a VTOL UAV by using a cost-effective hybrid method consisting of local positioning systems (vision based sensors) and global positioning systems. In this project, the advantages of local and global positioning systems will be combined to realize one specific goal: precise landing.


Prospective candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, automatic control, mechatronics, applied mathematics, or other related disciplines. Moreover, he/she should have a strong publication record in the fields related to robotic vision and image processing.

Additional desired skills:

-          Experience in computer vision, mathematics, C/C++ programming, and abstract thinking

-          Experience with computer vision: object recognition, segmentation, and tracking

-          Programming experience in real world systems

The contract is for one year (extendable to two years), and the salaries are competitive and are determined according to the successful applicant's accomplishments, experience and qualifications. The application should consist of:

*         One A4 page motivation letter (explaining the reason that you are interested in joining this project and NTU),

*         A CV with a full publication list,

*         The contact details of three referees.

These documents must be compiled as a single pdf file, and named as "<Name>_<Surname>.pdf". Then, the single file should be sent to "erdal at ntu.edu.sg" with a subject line of "Post-doc application"

Deadline: The deadline for the applications is 31th of May 2015.

Starting Date: 1st of July 2015 (some flexibility is possible)
