School of Computer Science, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Engineering Mathematics (SCEEM) at the University of Bristol, UK
Deadline: Nov 12, 2017
You will develop new models for the sea surface conditions, with a view to detect and characterise ship wakes. In order to validate the models, advanced methods for enhancing SAR image quality and for information extraction will be developed. The system will comprise a pipeline for processing data in a closed-loop with algorithms aiming at detecting ship wakes, followed by adaptation of the wake model.
The two available positions will focus on the development of novel algorithms and associated software tools for the mathematical and statistical characterization of the sea surface and on the solving of a range of inverse problems involving SAR imagery, respectively.
You will have a first degree and PhD (or equivalent level qualifications) in Mathematics, Electrical and Electronic Engineering or Computer Science (or closely related discipline) and have proven experience of image processing and analysis techniques as well as programming using Matlab and/or C++.
