We would like to bring to your attention a fully funded (for 4 years for those meeting UK/EU RCUK funding eligibility criteria) PhD studentship developing UAV based topographic sensors and feature tracking software at the newly formed NEXUSS centre for doctoral training (http://www.southampton.ac.uk/nexuss/index.page) based at the University of Southampton. The studentship comes with a generous Research and Training Support Grant, topped up in this case by a commercial partner. We seek to recruit a highly motivated student from an engineering, computing or electronics background who has interests in environmental applications of technology. Please circulate this advert more widely to colleagues and students in relevant departments.
Full details of the project, which aims to deploy the developed technology in a coastal monitoring application, can be found here: http://noc.ac.uk/gsnocs/project/novel-uav-based-high-resolution-topographic-survey-sensor-monitoring-dynamic-coastal-. Applicants are encouraged to contact Dr Julian Leyland (J.Leyland@soton.ac.uk) if they require further information. Note that the deadline for applications is 31st January 2016, with interviews at beginning of March.
