PhD Studentship in Multi-Sensor Image Fusion for Scene Analysis (PhD_MSIFSA_VK)

POSTED:April 22, 2022
LOCATION:Dublin City University
CLOSES:May 20, 2022
Duration:4 Years
Reports to:Prof Vladimir Krylov
Salary:Stipend: €18,500 per annum - non taxed (plus university fees)
Closing Date:May 20, 2022


Efficient exploitation and recycling of the multi-sensor optical imagery leads to complete elimination or substantial reduction of the need for manual interventions during mapping and monitoring campaigns. The central aim of this PhD project is to develop and validate state-of-the-art statistical and machine learning techniques for synergistic use of multi-sensor data for the purpose of comprehensive object-aware scene analysis which includes both semantic interpretation and high-fidelity position estimation (geolocalization) of objects. This will be achieved by relying on data such as street level imagery, airborne/satellite optical imagery, laser scans and 3d point clouds obtained via Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) systems, as well as data originating from GIS static maps. The project will be supervised by Prof. V. Krylov in Dublin City University as part of the ADAPT research centre.

The candidate

You are a motivated and enthusiastic person with a primary degree (e.g. Master’s degree) in computer science, statistics, machine learning, electrical engineering or related fields, with a strong interest in developing and implementing/prototyping machine learning and statistical techniques. Some prior experience with computer vision and/or image processing will be particularly relevant for this position. You are curious, have strong analytical thinking skills, and you communicate clearly in written and verbal settings.

As an ADAPT funded PhD researcher you will have access to a network of 85 global experts and over 250 staff as well as a wide multi-disciplinary ecosystem across 8 leading Irish universities.
