QUT (Queensland University of Technology) in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is seeking to recruit two postdoctoral research fellows with qualifications relevant to marine robotics to undertake a project titled "Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Guidance Navigation and Control". This project aims to advance the survey capabilities of underwater robots in complex coral reef environments.

The research areas for the two available positions are:

(1) "Enhanced Subsurface Positioning" - Research, design and implementation of advanced sensor data fusion algorithms for optimised navigation and geolocation in dynamic coral reef environments.

(2) "Adaptive Path Planning" - Research, design and implementation of adaptive planning and control algorithms for optimised navigation in complex dynamic environments.

More information and the application guide is at the link below. Applications close Wednesday 20th September 2017 (Australian Eastern Standard Time). Position number: 17399.

There are two Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions available. One will be based at the QUT Gardens Point campus with some travel expected to AIMS Cape Cleveland during the appointment. The second position will be based at AIMS Cape Cleveland with some travel to QUT Gardens Point campus during the appointment. Both positions will undertake field work to demonstrate their research on Australia's iconic Great Barrier Reef.

- The appointment will be offered on a fixed term, full-time basis for 3 years.
- The classification for this position is Academic Level B (LEVB) which has an annual remuneration range of $AUD108,796 to $AUD129,209 pa. Which is inclusive of an annual salary range of $AUD91,934 to $AUD109,183 pa., 17% superannuation and 17.5% recreation leave loading.

QUT is a major Australian university with a global outlook and a 'real world' focus. We are one of the nation's fastest growing research universities and our courses are in high demand. QUT is based in Brisbane, Australia, and hosts one of Australia's largest robotics group including the ARC Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision.

The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is Australia's premiere tropical marine research agency. AIMS plays a pivotal role in providing large-scale, long-term and world-class research that helps governments, industry and the wider community to make informed decisions about the management of Australia's marine estate.

AIMS and QUT are collaborating to conduct world leading, high impact research in the field of guidance, navigation and control for agile shallow water autonomous underwater vehicles operating in Australia's challenging tropical marine environment. By working together, AIMS and QUT will design and implement novel techniques to solve real world problems facing Australian marine researchers.
