In collaboration with Serge Wich, a conservation biologist at the university, the group is tackling one of the main challenges in drone/conservation research — efficiently extracting pertinent science information from the exponentially growing volumes of video data being produced.

You will work with other PhD students and postdocs in the group to (i) adapt the existing automatic, thermal-infrared, detection/identification, machine-learning pipeline for use in the field, and (ii) take the system to world-renowned National Parks (such as Chitwan in Nepal) with whom Prof. Wich works closely, to monitor and protect some of the last remaining Indian rhinos, tigers and elephants on the planet.

You must have, or have recently submitted, a PhD in Astronomy, Physics or related scientific discipline. Experience with thermal-infrared imaging, machine learning and imaging/detection pipeline development is desirable, but not required.

The position will be for 9 months and the applicant must be able to start on  1 April 2017.
