Fecha límite

CiTIUS is looking for 2 outstanding PhD researchers in the framework of the H2020 project MENELAOS NT: Multimodal Environmental Exploration Systems Novel Technologies.

MENELAOSNT is a European Training Network (MSCA-ETN) which will train 15 Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs). The focus of MENELAOSNT is to apply Novel Technologies to realize multimodal – multisensor data fusion to optimally combine the information “partititions”, delivered by different sensors on different scales, with different resolutions and with different reliability.

We offer 2 PhD positions in the following areas:

  • ESR1: Fabrication of CMOS ToF sensors with 2D/3D capabilities
  • ESR2: Design of an AIC CMOS vision system for spatio-temporal event detection

__Position details
