We are seeking an experienced researcher to contribute to delivering the Blue Economy CRC funded project Advanced monitoring to maximize fish welfare in offshore aquaculture.
You will join a productive, multi-disciplinary research team committed to delivering solutions for industry. The work is part of the Blue Economy Cooperative Research Centre program to facilitate a sustainable economy within Australian waters. The primary focus of this role is to use state-of-the-art deep learning architectures (convolutional and/or deep neural networks) and develop new algorithms to create a model that effectively detects, identifies, and counts jellyfish in videos streaming from cameras used by the Tasmanian salmon aquaculture industry to monitor their fish pens. This role includes taking the model of an existing prototype developed during a scoping study (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=raIEM1zKRYQ) to a fully operational system that will be used by our industry partners to detect and monitor jellyfish.
The role includes working closely with Tasmania’s three salmon aquaculture companies and the Blue Economy CRC research team. Success in this role requires the ability to publish high-quality papers, effective collaboration and communication skills and working effectively with multiple industry partners.
