The CRC for Spatial Information node at QUT has a new exciting 3 year
research and 
development project with industry partner Ergon.  This project aims to
explore the use 
of robotic aircraft technologies to perform long-distance monitoring of
Ergon's vast 
powerline infrastructure in Queensland.  A number of commercial
off-the-shelf UAV 
systems will be evaluated for this application throughout the project.
 
The Australian Research Centre for Aerospace Automation (ARCAA) at QUT 
(http://www.arcaa.aero) is seeking to hire up to 4 individuals (1 engineer,
1 
postdoc/scientist and 2 PhD students) to participate in this research
project spanning 
several areas of Computer Vision and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. The
successful 
candidates will have the opportunity to participate broadly within the
research mission 
of ARCAA.  The candidate will have excellent collaborative opportunities
with a 
diverse group of multidisciplinary researchers from image processing, ICT 
technologies, image modelling, guidance, navigation, control and UAV
technologies; 
as well as with a diverse of pool of industry collaborators. Primary
research 
interactions will take place within ARCAA at QUT Gardens Point
(www.qut.edu.au) 
and then in ARCAA's new facility at the Brisbane Airport, due for completion
in June 
2008.
 
Specific details on each open position are given below. Interested
individuals should 
send Applications (cv, including personal references) to the contact person
specified 
below.
Qualified and motivated applicants with backgrounds in mechatronics,
robotics, 
computer science, software engineering, or a related field are encouraged to
apply.
 
1.  A research engineer position is available in field robotics, starting at

field, with experience in image analysis, aerial robotics, control and 
guidance, excellent skills in C/C++ and MATLAB. This full time position 
is open immediately for 3 years.
 
2. A postdoc/scientist position in image processing, 3D registration and
Geo-
referenced imagery, starting at 60k AUD$ p/a. Possible fields of research 
include:
a. Vegetation classification
b. Power lines detection
c. Image-based 3D reconstruction
d. Geo-reference imagery, ortho-photograph. 
 

      The ideal candidate should have the following qualifications:
MSc degree or higher in engineering, computer science or a closely related 
field, with experience in image analysis and modelling, robotics, excellent 
skills in C/C++ and MATLAB. This full time position is open immediately 
for 3 years.
 
3. Two positions to pursue PhD studies in image processing, precision 
guidance and control of small UAV operating near ground infrastructure.
 
      The ideal candidate should have the following qualifications:
BS or MSc degree in Engineering, Computer Science or a closely related 
field. Must have excellent skills in C/C++ and MATLAB. This full time

The Australian Research Centre for Aerospace Automation is the largest
research 
group in Australia dedicated to research and development in new aerospace 
automation technologies.  The centre is a joint venture with CSIRO and has
14 full-
time staff and 20 full-time PhD students.  The objectives of ARCAA are
focussed at 
civil applications of these new technologies.   ARCAA is an exciting place
to work 
with brand-new facilities and major clients in the aerospace industry.
 
Application is now open until the positions are filled. For further
