PhD research fellowship position in Robotic Vision and Data Driven Learning on Autonomous Robotic Platforms

The PhD position is related to a highly interdisciplinary project which targets fundamental research questions in the fields of Robotic Vision, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Control Theory for the use in microbiology and oceanography.

The project aims to image, process, analyze plankton images taken from the upper water­-column by a mobile autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) thereby autonomously target specific microbiological taxa.

It will build upon state-of-the-art machine learning methods including Deep Convolutional Neural Networks (Deep Learning) and support vector machines (SVMs) to enable optimal navigation decisions with an improved context awareness and the ability to classify microbiological images unsupervised and do so online onboard an AUV. Exploiting such relatively new concepts for which a huge amount of data is required and sufficient training data has to be generated with respect to an expected taxonomy is a significant challenge. Labelling of new classes may require augmented taxonomic classification capabilities from a biological expert. In the next step, the autonomous control part of the process pipeline will bypass input from a biological expert exploiting new self-guided Machine Learning methods. In addition, the project will explore how to train a neural network with image data not only along the spatial but also temporal domain for information evolution.

The successful candidate will be appointed for a period of 3 years, with possible extension to a fourth year if the candidate undertakes teaching related duties.

Successful applicants must have a Master's degree in computer science, artificial intelligence, mathematics, cybernetics, physics or similar with a solid background in mathematical modelling and machine learning. Education in robotics, computer vision, machine learning, and/or biological oceanography is an advantage. Applicants that expect to complete their Master’s degree by summer 2018 can apply. Applicants must have significant programming experience ideally in C, C++ and/or Python and should be willing and able to go to sea.

Application deadline: 31. December 2017

PostDoc: "Automatic control for system integration of future ships" at Delft University of Technology

The project GasDrive proposes the development of innovative efficient LNG-powered ship systems designed for operating optimally under future environmental, societal and economic constraints. An innovative approach is proposed by exploring and maximizing the system integration opportunities of LNG that lay in the integration of gas engine, gas turbine (and/or turbocharger), solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC), and new types of drag-reducing ship hull nano-laminates interacting with exhaust gases. Such an approach could result in future ships with no direct emission to atmosphere, with very low indirect emission of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and a new paradigm shift in very high efficiency and extremely low energy requirements of ships systems, including propulsion.

The Dept. of Maritime & Transport Technology at Delft University of Technology is seeking an enthusiastic post-doctoral research to work on this new type of ships. The 2-year post-doc project focuses on using advanced automatic control techniques for the integration of the different types of systems (engines, fuel cells, propulsion systems, etc.) in order to maximize the operational ship system wide performance.

RESEARCH FELLOW IN MACHINE LEARNING FOR ENGINE CONTROL

Work type: Fixed Term, Continuing

Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
School of Electrical, Mechanical and Infrastructure Engineering
Melbourne School of Engineering

Salary: $69,148* - $93,830 p.a. (Level A) (*PhD entry Level A.6 $87,415 p.a.) plus 9.5% superannuation

The research fellow will join a team of academic staff and postgraduate students working on problems related to the control and calibration of diesel engines. The team maintains a longstanding partnership with Toyota Motor Company in this area.

This position is available for 2 years and will be reviewed at the end of this period.

The aim of the research is to explore and develop novel algorithms that are implementable in real-time to improve the fuel economy and emissions of diesel engines. Given the constraints present in the system, much of the work to date has focused on the development of model predictive control designs. One of the challenges in implementation of these controllers is the calibration to achieve the appropriate level of performance under different legislated limits and consumer demands for different markets. We intend to develop methods (based on a combination of machine learning and traditional optimisation methods) that can partially automate the calibration process for these advanced controller designs, leading ultimately to faster calibration of better performing engine controllers.

The research fellow must have a background in engineering or applied mathematics, with demonstrated expertise in modelling and control of dynamical systems and numerical optimisation. Experience with at least one of model predictive control; engine modelling and control; machine learning; and implementation of controllers on real systems is essential – while some background in more than one of these areas is highly desirable.

The research fellow will be located in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the Melbourne School of Engineering and will be expected to be an active member of the Department, collaborating with other researchers and engineers internally and externally. In addition to preparing technical reports, research publications, and computer simulations, the research fellow may also have the opportunity to undertake teaching and student supervision is areas directly related to their research.

The Melbourne School of Engineering is strongly committed to supporting diversity and flexibility in the workplace. Applications for part-time or other flexible working arrangements will be welcomed and will be fully considered subject to meeting the inherent requirements of the position.

The University plan seeks to increase the diversity of the workforce and the representation of women in areas they have been traditionally under-represented. Consistent with this the School is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across engineering disciplines. Under a Special Measure, under Section 12 (1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic) the School is seeking to lift the representation of women from 20% in 2014 to at least 25% over the next 5 years, and strongly encourages applications from suitably qualified female candidates.

The 3mE Faculty trains committed engineering students, PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers in groundbreaking scientific research in the fields of mechanical, maritime and materials engineering. 3mE is the epitome of a dynamic, innovative faculty, with a European scope that contributes demonstrable economic and social benefits.

The Delft Centre for Systems and Control (DCSC) coordinates the education and research activities in the fields of systems and control at the Delft University of Technology. The Centre's mission is to conduct fundamental research in systems dynamics and control, involving dynamic modelling, advanced control theory, optimisation and signal analysis. This undertaking is motivated by advanced technology developments in several (emerging) application fields.

Within the data-driven control section of DCSC the focus is on the analysis and decision making for large-scale (in size), multi-disciplinary, dynamical systems. It addresses the question of what model complexity is necessary for all individual system components in order to use data-driven models for reliable and robust model-based diagnostics, parameter estimation, monitoring and control.

Description:
Uncertainty quantification and disturbance modelling are essential parts of the data-driven control cycle of multi-disciplinary systems. They addresses the question of what is possible and what is important, respectively. Therefore, the combination of uncertainty descriptions with multi-disciplinary system models is essential to enable reliable, robust, and efficient decision making. This fundamental framework makes it possible to develop robust, data-driven control systems for demanding industrial application fields, including large-scale mechatronic systems, dynamic positioning systems, and ocean/-wind energy harvesting systems.

Currently, we seek an expert in the field of data-driven modelling and/or control with a solid background in the field of (robust) control engineering and/or nonlinear system identification.

Cooperation with other members of the scientific staff and establishing relationships with practitioners are important aspects of this position. You will also contribute to teaching at the MSc and BSc levels. Every new Assistant/Associate Professor is given a tenure-track position.

A tenure track, a process leading up to a permanent appointment with the prospect of becoming an Associate or full Professor, offers young, talented academics a clear and attractive career path. During the tenure track, you will have the opportunity to develop into an internationally acknowledged and recognised academic. We offer a structured career and personal development programme designed to offer individual academics as much support as possible. For more information about the tenure track and the personal development programme, please visit www.tudelft.nl/tenuretrack.

Requirements:
The successful candidate must have the following qualifications:
• A PhD degree in systems and control, applied mathematics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or a related field
• Fundamental knowledge of control systems theory and/or system identification
• The capacity to communicate effectively with peers, students and stakeholders in the application field
• An excellent track record in scientific publications, acquisition and management of externally funded research projects, a clear view on required future developments, aiming at a high degree of sustainability in the application field, and experience as a post-doctoral researcher
• Fluency in English and the willingness to learn Dutch within three years
• An open personality and good communication skills in English.
