There is a new opening on the intersection of compressive sensing and civil engineering at City University London (http://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/AGJ516/research-fellow-in-compressive-sensing/). Can you please advertise it on Nuit Blanche? It is a very promising and exciting project!
Thanks, Petros..."Sure Petros, it looks quite interesting indeed!. Here is what the job announcement says:
"...Research Fellow in Compressive Sensing City University -Conjoint Schools of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences and Informatics
..... The Structural Dynamics Research Group, part of the Department of Civil Engineering in SEMS, has recently been awarded a research grant by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) on “Compressive Sensing for Wireless Vibration-Based Structural Health Monitoring of Civil Engineering Structures”. The project involves multi-disciplinary computational and analytical work spanning the fields of structural dynamics, compressive sensing, and array signal analysis. The Group is seeking to appoint an outstanding Research Fellow in the field of signal processing/ compressive sensing to work under the supervision of the Principal Investigator, Dr.Giaralis and in consultation with the international project partners (Prof. R. Baraniuk- Rice University, Houston, TX, USA and Dr P. Boufounos- Mitsubishi Electrics Research Labs, Boston, MA, USA) to meet the aims and objectives of the project.
The appointment is fixed for one year and is available from 1st September 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Responsibilities The successful candidate will be responsible for developing compressive signal processing based algorithms for structural health monitoring applications supported by theoretical/analytical work under the supervision of the Principal Investigator and the project partners. He or she will also be responsible for developing relevant computer programmes to test the developed algorithms against provided simulated and experimental structural dynamics signals. The succesful candidate will co-author papers reporting research findings to be published in peer-reviewed international journals and conference proceedings and will receive support to attend international conferences and to participate in meetings with the project partners and other project stakeholders.
Person Specification The post holder will have a PhD in Electrical Engineering/Applied Mathematics or a related subject. Expertise in the field of signal acquisition and processing is essential while research track record in the area of compressive sensing is desirable. Excellent programming skills in MATLAB are required, along with very good communication skills in spoken and written English. Flexibility to travel for a long period of time to liaise with the international academic project partner at Rice University is desirable.
Additional Information In return, we offer a comprehensive package of in-house staff training and development, and benefits that include a final salary pension scheme. Actively working to promote equal opportunities and diversity. For more information and to apply, click on the link below. Closing date: 24 May 2013 Click here for Employer Profile.."
