About the position 

The postdoctoral fellowship position is a temporary position where the main goal is to qualify for work in senior academic positions.  

The position is with the Autonomous Robots Lab of NTNU ( ) and focuses on both fundamental and applied research in the domain of resilient robotic perception and spatial intelligence in fully or partially GPS/GNSS-denied and possibly visually-degraded environments. Topics of priority include – but are not limited to – research in a) Simultaneous Localization And Mapping in cluttered and obscurants-filled environments with challenging light conditions, as well as b) environment representations that can facilitate agile and safe motion and path planning for Micro Aerial Vehicles. As part of this position, the selected researcher will be working in the DigiForest project ( ), an EU grant on digital and robotically-assisted forestry that beyond NTNU also involves the collaboration of TUMunich, ETH Zurich, University of Oxford, and the University of Bonn, as well as the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research, Silvere, Hexagon, and Moog. 

The Autonomous Robots Lab has leading research in robotic autonomy. Our track-record includes the recent win on the DARPA Subterranean Challenge (leading Team CERBERUS), top-tier publications, a host of prestigious grants funded by both US and European sources, and an international network of research collaborators. 

Your immediate leader is Professor Kostas Alexis.
