The Company

SubSea Craft is a privately-funded SME delivering Advanced Maritime Technology. Our core product is VICTA, a Diver Delivery Unit - a surface submersible craft designed to operate at speed over range and capable of rapid transition beneath the surface to operate submerged, enabling the discreet delivery and recovery of divers. It is a unique, innovative British product focused primarily on the defence market but with utility beyond. More information can be found in

The Project

The project will involve two KTP associates developing this software tool, responsible for developing the machine learning-based prognostic algorithm and the software that encapsulates the algorithm. This position is for machine learning-based prognostic algorithms. The challenge is to develop prognostic algorithms for a predictive maintenance tool to provide through-life-support for small marine vessels that can;

  • Model life cycles of multiple marine vessel components
  • Detect fault indicators on these components (e.g. diesel engine, battery)
  • Estimate remaining useful life for these components

These algorithms will need to be capable of running during online and offline operation.

You will be joining a large, friendly team, based at company headquarters in Portsmouth. In the role you will be actively supported by knowledge transfer specialists from the University of Portsmouth, with expertise in innovation, machine learning, condition monitoring, and embedded systems. The project is jointly funded by SubSea Craft Ltd.

The role

This is an exciting opportunity open to a candidate with masters or Ph.D. qualification in mathematics, computer science, engineering, or other relevant subject. The post will provide the individual with an opportunity to make a significant contribution to the company’s innovation. The post holder will identify opportunities offered by machine learning and artificial intelligence within SubSea Craft. The successful applicant will be highly motivated and able to demonstrate some previous successful experience in a relevant role.

The University of Portsmouth believes this role is eligible for sponsorship with UKVI under the Skilled Worker Route visa, and meets the minimum salary requirements to obtain the minimum points requirement.

We kindly ask that candidates do not send CVs or cover letters as these will not be considered.

Candidates are invited to contact Prof. Victor Becerra ( to discuss the post.
