Vacancies

Applications are invited for PhD positions in the following thematic areas:

  1. GNSS surveying and geodesy (e.g., RTK, PPP and CORS networks),
  2. GNSS remote sensing (e.g., meteorology, reflectometry, ionospheric sounding)
  3. GNSS air/space-based applications (e.g., relative navigation, attitude determination, formation-flying)
  4. GNSS quality control (e.g., integrity theory, ambiguity resolution, validation)

PhD vacancies

Applications are invited for PhD research positions in the following thematic areas:

  1. GNSS surveying and geodesy (e.g., RTK, PPP and CORS networks),
  2. GNSS remote sensing (e.g., meteorology, reflectometry, ionospheric sounding)
  3. GNSS air/space-based applications (e.g., relative navigation, attitude determination, formation-flying)
  4. GNSS quality control (e.g., integrity theory, ambiguity resolution, validation)

The general team strategy is to exploit the diversity of the multi-constellation GNSS and the unique properties of their ultra-precise, multi-frequency carrier-phase tracking data to enable high-precision, high-integrity, real-time kinematic GNSS parameter estimation.

Requirements for the PhD positions

  • See www.curtin.edu.au/research/futurestudents/admission.cfm for the rules for entry eligibility criteria
  • Ability to work independently and to tight deadlines and timeframes
  • Excellent English written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent interpersonal and organisational skills
  • A commitment to maintain a high standard of professional work

Salary and benefits:

Accepted PhD candidates receive a fee-waiver and a scholarship (A$20,000 per annum tax-free), with the opportunity to earn extra by part-time tutoring.
