PhD Position (f/m/d) in MSCA ETN Safer autonomous systems - ESR12: Assuring autonomous sailing from A to B while minimizing operational costs
PhD Position in MSCA ETN Safer autonomous systems - ESR12: Assuring autonomous sailing from A to B while minimizing operational costs
Employment percentage: Full-time Location: Brugge Electrical Engineering (ESAT) TC, Bruges Campus Apply before: Monday, March 25, 2019
The MSCA ETN Safer Autonomous Systems project comprises a consortium of high profile universities, research institutions and companies located in Belgium, UK, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway and Ireland. This gives SAS some of the best and most relevant of European industry and the key academic players, guaranteeing not only an exciting interdisciplinary, intersectoral research-and-training programme, but also a head-start for bringing about trust in autonomous systems. Each of the 15 ESRs will be working towards a PhD degree, supported by a carefully chosen supervisory team that maximizes both scientific excellence as well as interdisciplinary and intersectoral collaboration. The 15 SAS ESRs will not only receive state-of-the-art science/technology training but will also benefit from a unique soft-skills training programme. This will kick-start their careers as highly employable professionals tackling challenges across many industrial sectors comprising, but not limited to, automotive, robotics, nautical, manufacturing, aeronautics, agriculture and medical industry. This particular ESR-position will be executed within RH Marine. RH Marine is a leading system integrator and innovator of electrical and automation systems in the maritime industry, and delivers tailored solutions for complex Defence, Safety & Security ships and Yachts. RH Marine supports and advises its customers from the design phase through the entire life cycle of the ship. Ensuring safe, sustainable, comfortable and cost efficient continuity of operations for customers and operators by integrating smart and cost effective solutions since 1860. RH Marine is partner of Bakker Sliedrecht and part of Pon Holdings.
Within the SAS project, ESR12 will enable safe autonomous sailing from A to B while minimizing operational costs, by performing the following steps: optimization algorithm, situational awareness algorithm and collision/grounding avoidance algorithm. The optimization algorithm will obtain a to be sailed track by a vessel (or a fleet of vessels) from A to B, optimized in relation to financial objectives taking into account real-life constraints. Next to this optimization algorithm the ESR will develop a situational awareness algorithm, combining the input of several types of sensors in order to create a situational awareness output to a to be developed collision/grounding avoidance algorithm. The ESR will integrate the optimization algorithm, collision avoidance algorithm and current motion control systems of vessels in order to simulate a number of scenario's fulfilling the defined objectives.
Career stage: Early Stage Researcher (ESR) or 0-4 yrs (Post Graduate)
Early-stage researchers (ESR): those who are, at the time of recruitment by the host, in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the research training is provided, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate was envisaged.
Conditions of international mobility of researchers: researchers are required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up the appointment. At the time of selection by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.
English language: Network fellows (ESRs) must demonstrate that their ability to understand and express themselves in both written and spoken English is sufficiently high for them to derive the full benefit from the network training.
The successful candidates will receive an attractive salary in accordance with the MSCA regulations for Early Stage Researchers. The exact (net) salary will be confirmed upon appointment and is dependent on local tax regulations and on the country correction factor (to allow for the difference in cost of living in different EU Member States). The salary includes a living allowance, a mobility allowance and a family allowance (if married). The guaranteed PhD funding is for 36 months (i.e. EC funding, additional funding is possible, depending on the local Supervisor, and in accordance with the regular PhD time in the country of origin). In addition to their individual scientific projects, all fellows will benefit from further continuing education, which includes internships and secondments, a variety of training modules as well as transferable skills courses and active participation in workshops and conferences.
