We are seeking to fill a funded Ph.D. opening in the area of optical and
acoustic seafloor mapping.  Possible topics include terrain
reconstructions, real-time adaptive path planning, habitat
classification, and SLAM.  The student will participate in field work and
develop a thesis that mixes oceanographic science and marine robotics using
a number of existing vehicles and sensor systems.  The student could enroll
in the URI Ocean Engineering Department or the Graduate School of
Oceanography depending on their prior education and desired degree.

- Desired skill set
Background in computer science and/or engineering
Programming experience in Python, C++ or MATLAB
Familiarity with ROS and/or LCM, or mobile robots in general
