Qualification Details

To be qualified, you must have a PhD in Automatic control or related subject. The research tasks require a solid mathematical background with proven advanced experimental capabilities and excellent programming skills (e.g. C++, ROS, etc.). You should have a strong vision to evaluate and demonstrate the research findings in real life operating conditions, in an approach to close the gap between pure theory and experimental verifications. You will represent the group in different contexts, both in Sweden and abroad and hence have excellent skills in English.

Responsibilities/Job Description

You will perform research with substantial experimental components that should be published in peer-reviewed international journals and at major conferences. The position will include supervision of PhD and MSc students, teaching and supporting in acquiring funds for future research projects from research funding agencies/councils, EU framework program or industry.

As a Post-Doc, you will be working in the field of aerial robotics and the activities will be linked with National, European and Worldwide R&D Projects.

Characteristic research topics will focus on, but not be limited to, the following areas, where a proof of previous work with experimentally verified results is a necessary:

- Multi-robotic Simultaneous localization, path planning and exploration

- Multi sensor fusion

- Collaborative vision for robotics

- Proactive obstacle avoidance

- Distributed task execution (exploration, planning, mapping)

- Multi-robotic Perception

- Collaborative Mapping and Exploration

- Global and local mission planners for Massively connected robots

- Reactive local and global navigation

- Automatic Control and Optimisation

- Edge Computing

- Machine Learning approaches in Robotics

- Computer Vision

- Space Autonomy

- Underwater Autonomy

About the Project/Department

Robotics and artificial intelligence aim to develop novel robotic systems that are characterised by advanced autonomy for improving the ability of robots to interact with the surrounding environment and humans during the execution of specific tasks.

The vision of RAI is aiming in closing the gap from theory to real life, while the team has a strong expertise in field robotics. Specific application areas of focus are robotics for mines, construction sites, aerial inspection of aging infrastructure, multi-robotic search and rescue, multi sensorial fusion and multirobot coordination, including multirobot perception, decentralization and mission execution.

The RAI team has a strong European participation in multiple R&D&I projects, while RAI was also participating in the DARPA SUB-T challenge with the CoSTAR Team lead by NASA/JPL.
