The University of Girona has currently open a full-time Postdoctoral position in the Computer Vision and Robotics Institute (VICOROB). We are seeking outstanding candidates  to work on the intersection of deep learning and underwater robotics.

This position is aligned, but not limited, with the goals of EU H2020 project DeeperSense. DeeperSense seeks novel approaches of using data-driven Deep Learning to combine non-visual and visual sensors with the objective of improving environment perception beyond the abilities of the individual sensors. We focus on underwater robotics as a challenging and impactful domain for demonstration and verification of results

Emphasis will be put on the topic of intersensoric learning towards enabling multisensor fusion from different sources, including optical (such as standard RGB sensors, event cameras and laser scanner), acoustic (including forward looking sonar and multibeam) and navigation data. A strong application to existing robotic platforms at CIRS/UdG is both expected and encouraged.

Within this broad area, other topics of specific research interest by the candidate will be considered and fully supported.

Tasks and Responsibilities


    Development of novel ideas for perception methods for underwater robotics based on multi sensors.


    Co-supervision of one or more PhD students


    Authoring and co-authoring of journal and conference articles


    Participation on field experiments using the underwater robots of the University of Girona and those of associated partners


    Participation in project activities such as meetings and demonstrations

Prerequisites. Applicants should hold a PhD degree in computer science areas related to computer vision, machine learning and robotics. Final year PhD students will be considered upon providing evidence of finishing the degree before the end of May 2021.

Duration of the position: 18 months, with possibility of extension

Salary:  32.3k€ to 38.3k€ gross annual salary, commensurate with work experience

Main academic partners: Dr. Nuno Gracias, ngracias at silver.udg.edu, Prof. Rafael Garcia, rafael.garcia at udg.edu and Prof Pere Ridao, pere.ridao at udg.edu
