Sub research field: Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Eng., Biomedical Eng., Physics, Mathematics, Physical Eng. or related areas.
Application period: 16 to 30 Nov 2022
The Institute of Systems and Robotics - University of Coimbra (ISR-UC) opens the call for applications for one (1) fellowship for Bachelor students in the scope of the R&D project: GreenBotics - “Intelligent Robotic System for Digital Agriculture”, under the reference PTDC/EEI-ROB/2459/2021, financed by the FCT.
Admission requirements: bachelor's degree in electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Eng., Biomedical Eng., Physics, Mathematics, Physical Eng., or related areas. Applicants with academic degrees obtained abroad will be required to present a Certificate of Recognition in accordance with applicable law.
Work Plan: development of coding and techniques for T3 (field/agricultural robotics and sensor networks) and T4 (deep probabilistic inference). The selected candidate will also collaborate in tasks related to system integration and testing (T5), dataset collection, hardware integration, and on dissemination actions.
Monthly maintenance allowance amount: The scholarship amount corresponds to € 875.98, according to the table of scholarship values directly attributed by FCT, I.P. in the country (https: // www. fct.pt/apoios/bolsas/valores.phtml.pt).
