The Department of Computer Science and Engineering has about 70 faculty members and enrolls about 90 Ph.D. students from more than 30 countries. The research spans the whole spectrum, from theoretical foundations to applied systems development. There is extensive national and international collaboration with academia and industry all around the world.
Information about the research group
The Networks and Systems division at Chalmers University of Technology consists of 9 faculties, 4 postdoctoral and 12 doctoral researchers. The division is active in a wide range of research topics in the fields of distributed computing, networked systems, and cyber-physical systems to name a few. In addition, the division contributes to interdisciplinary research at the intersection of ICT, transportation, energy, e-science and built environment. The division runs several national and international projects in collaboration with both academia and industry.
As a research project assistant, you will join the Networks and Systems division and work in the project iTRANSIT and CHRONOS (both Vinnova's FFIs projects). The main focal area will be Data Fusion and Global Positioning (GNSS) for Autonomous and Cooperative Driving. Additional background in Embedded Systems as well as strong programming skills in C++ and Python are beneficial. In this project, we design and develop a new testing system for automated driving systems. A special emphasis in the project is to plan and conduct tests to gather GNSS and inertial measurements at a vehicular testing ground and to develop real-time applications to fuse GNSS and inertial measurements.
Your major responsibility as a project assistant will include the following.
(1) Post-processing of GNSS data: (1.1) Developing a Python/Perl toolchain on GNU/Linux, (1.2) Transformations between different datums, and (1.3) Comparisons and statistics of sets of GNSS measurements. (2) Collecting GNSS data: (2.1) Plan and conduct tests to gather GNSS and inertial measurements, and (2.2) Developing real-time applications to fuse GNSS and inertial measurements (3) Supervise/conduct tests of an active safety test system: (3.1) Ensure the communication infrastructure of several project partners are compatible, and (3.2) Develop missing elements: C++/C, Boost, ZeroMQ, and GNU/Linux.
Full-time temporary employment. This is a 3+3 months position and it is limited to a maximum of 6 months.
To qualify for this position, you must have a solid background in Embedded Systems as well as strong programming skills in C++ and Python are beneficial. The main work is about Data Fusion and Global Positioning (GNSS) and therefore sufficient background in these areas is needed as well. The ideal candidate for the position also has a strong background in distributed computing and networked systems, including algorithmic aspects.
Further experience with interdisciplinary projects or background in cyber-physical systems, automotive/physics is helpful. Knowledge of Swedish is not a prerequisite for applying since English is our working language for research, and we publish internationally.
Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
The application should be marked with Name, Ref 20160537 and be attached as PDF files via Chalmers webpage.
Application deadline: 23 December 2016
