The UROP will be responsible for development and maintenance of the python-based control systems and maintaining the data pipeline to pass video and sensor data to the ROV or camera operator. The successful candidate should have experience with Python. Interests in deep ocean exploration and community outreach are also desirable. UROP will work as a team member with researchers, external contractors and designers and PIs. This is a remote ELO (Experiential Learning Opportunity) position.
