University of Oslo: Postdoctoral position in Ultrasound Indoor Localization
Visit website here.
“Infrastructure-less indoor positioning in 3D” is a User-driven Research based Innovation project (BIA) sponsored by the Norwegian Research Council. The industrial partners Sonitor Technologies and MazeMap will work with research groups at the University of Oslo (UiO) and the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) to develop an infrastructure-less indoor positioning technology based on an innovative sensor fusion approach.
A Post-Doctoral Research Fellow position is available in the DSB – Digital Signal Processing and Image Analysis Group, Department of Informatics. The appointment is a fulltime position and is made for a period of up to (3) three years. The main purpose of the fellowship is to qualify researchers for work in higher academic positions within their disciplines.
The project is in the field of ultrasound air acoustics. The goal is to establish a phased array air sonar platform using key insights from radar, sonar and medical imaging technology. One of the challenges is the highly reflective indoor acoustics environment. In collaboration with the industrial partner Sonitor Technologies an air sonar prototype platform will also be developed and validated.
Applicants must have a background in ultrasound localization, indoor positioning, acoustics, or applied physics/mathematics, including signal processing, and should have good analytical and programming skills. Besides technical skills, we are looking for a curious, ambitious candidate who is highly motivated to do research and contribute to the work done at our group. Good communication skills in both oral and written English are expected. We strongly encourage that the application is accompanied by a short cover letter explaining briefly how the applicant’s background and education fit the goals and requirements of this project.
