The position is part of the Technology Platform (TPF) of the Faculty, a central support structure that accommodates the faculty’s diverse research activities, provides access to special programming skills and thus facilitates collaboration and increases efficiency of research (see https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.philhum.unibe.ch_forschung_tpf_index-5Fger.html&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=BFUcOi3H8mwGZaXsnvvVjvvkMkkrcbGdouSCAMrF64A&s=opNNXCgJDeqJb12vel8UFhapEddsUO4U-xBl_gjF9mc&e=). In direct contact with the researchers of the Institutes of Psychology, Sport Science and Educational Science, the TPF develops project-specific solutions. The laboratories of the involved institutes are equipped with (among others) virtual reality and motion capture systems, force and motion platforms as well as EEG and eye tracking devices, which can be controlled via software to be developed. In addition, central database solutions are used in order to collect, synchronize and evaluate data from mobile devices.
Established in 2017, the current team of the TPF is composed of a coordinator and two senior software developers.

* involvement in the entire project life cycle of TPF software projects
* participation in project meetings and development of software requirements
* implementation of software projects with a 3D-modelling focus (3DSmax, Collada, etc.)
* documentation and maintenance of created, reusable software components
* responsibility for keeping milestones
We expect a good university degree in computer science (technical college, ETH) or an equivalent education. Furthermore, the applicant should have experience in creating, optimizing and applying interactive 3D models as well as developing the appropriate software. As an analytically oriented and creative personality, the applicant should enjoy interacting with others and new challenges, be motivated, be able to work under pressure, and think and act in a customer-orientated manner. Additional skills are:
* excellent and verifiable knowledge in the creation of interactive 3D models for real-time applications
* good knowledge with Unity (C#), Worldviz (Python) and smartphone applications
* experience with web applications (advantageous)
* an excellent command of written and spoken English (German advantageous)
a highly interesting research environment, flexibility in work structure, a modern infrastructure and special offers for employees (such as Unisport, library, and continuing education). The salary is determined according to cantonal regulations.
