The Cognitive Robotics Research Team at Ulster University invites applications for a fully funded 3-year Ph.D. studentship in collaboration with Seagate:

Machine Vision for Automated Inspection of Hard Drive Components

This project will develop an improved suite of machine vision technologies suitable for the automated inspection of wafers. The reference image approach will be replaced by alternative image processing techniques based on local features combined with computational intelligence techniques so that changes in the product design will not require an updated template for the detection of defects. Rather than performing pixel by pixel comparisons between complete images, the system will be able to detect localised image features that correspond to a particular defect type. In addition, the intelligent reasoning system will be capable of monitoring existing and detecting new defects and image changes that occur as a result of process design changes, equipment wear or which are a result of earlier processes.  This will enable the system to maintain continuous service even new or update products are developed.

The application process for the Ph.D. studentships is opened with a closing date for applications on the 19th February 2018. All studentships, which are highly competitive, are expected to start in October 2018, and include tuition fees and an annual maintenance allowance for UK students. All applicants should hold a first or upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in an appropriate subject, such as Computer Science/Electrical Engineering or a related area.
