Postdoc in I-GNSS at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands

Applications are welcome from interested applicants for a Postdoc in I-GNSS at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.

In the research project ‘I-GNSS positioning for assisted and automated driving, there is a vacancy for a Postdoc researcher for two years. The I-GNSS project started last year and is carried out by a research team, currently consisting of two PhD students, and associated researcher from industry, and two senior staff members of the Department of Geoscience and Remote Sensing, at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of the Delft University of Technology.

The research project aims to develop reliable centimeter-level interferometric-GNSS (I-GNSS) positioning for assisted and automated driving. To this end, we address detection theory for real-time kinematic (RTK) carrier-phase positioning in the context of multi-frequency, multi-constellation GNSS. Statistical hypothesis testing, as well as its performance evaluation, will be set-up up to accommodate multiple competing sources of threats and faults in the measurement system while taking into account the so-far unrecognized impact statistical testing has on the distribution of the estimator for the position or state. The project comprises theoretical development, implementation, simulation, and testing of developments in prototype and practice, as well as design and optimization of the statistical testing procedure.
