Research Position in Underwater Acoustics and Communications ISR, Lisbon, Portugal

The Institute for Systems and Robotics (www.isr.ist.utl.pt), a research institute of Instituto Superior Tecnico - Technical University of Lisbon (www.ist.utl.pt), offers one research position within project PHITOM - Probabilistic High-Frequency Ocean Tomography for Underwater Communications and Navigation. The chosen candidate will develop algorithms for Bayesian inversion in underwater acoustics, validate them on experimental data, and participate in the development of a self-contained software solution to extract environmental and navigation data from communications signals.

The grant is offered for a period of 3 years, from September 2008, according to standard rates of the Portuguese Science Foundation for BI/Lic (alfa.fct.mctes.pt/apoios/bolsas/valores). Ideally, this work is envisaged as part of a Doctoral Dissertation.
