Qualification Details

  • A PhD in computer science or geoscience with specific regard to deep learning and computer vision.
  • Expertise in cloud and edge computing and knowledge of communication protocols.
  • Expertise in the processing of very high-resolution data
  • Excellent scientific track of record
  • Experience in national and international research projects

  • Excellent communication skills and good English language proficiency
  • An affinity with a multi-cultural education environment, excellent work ethics, and commitment to the job

Responsibilities/Job Description

You will establish a new line of research to develop the next generation of drones for remote sensing applications with specific regard to on-board and cloud computing to increase the automation in UAV mapping. You will develop algorithms and methods for (near) real-time processing of data acquired from drones. The idea behind your work is to make drones as a part of network of sensors (i.e. part of an IoT network) where collected data will be processed on-board or streamed on the cloud. Given the multi-disciplinarity of the ITC Faculty, different applications ranging such as precision farming, surveillance/ patrolling and 3D mapping will be faced. You are willing to collaborate with different departments of the ITC Faculty understanding problems from different domains and developing breakthrough scientific solutions to overcome these challenges. You will be also involved in the consultancy and research activities of the Centre and will be involved in the development of new research ideas and proposals and occasionally asked to supervise MSc and PhD students.
