[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Post Doc in Robotics at Technical University of Munich

Anna Principato

      *TUM looking for a Post-Doc in Robotics/Software Engineering who
      will work on modeling and implementing a software architecture for
      a generalised robotic framework*

The candidate will join our team at the Chair of Robotics, Artificial
Intelligence and Embedded Systems (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www6.in.tum.de&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Y016jMDLmWevHQQ-H-AXfsTdj-RNnYhQXrRRX7IKbV4&s=-LCjeoT5yhgI7j27Z0p0-a5_yGnenourws4y-MQb51M&e=) at Technical
University of Munich (TUM). Your work will mainly focus in the context
of the H2020 project RobMoSys (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__robmosys.eu&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Y016jMDLmWevHQQ-H-AXfsTdj-RNnYhQXrRRX7IKbV4&s=NB4h9R39DYX2hh8bkpjSwYBNmJcVCVH3VRZjqsZe8dY&e=). We aim to develop a
meta-level robotics framework, that will build on top of current
code-centric robotic platforms by applying model-driven methods and
tools. This will enable the management of interfaces between different
robotics-related domains in an efficient and systematic way according to
each system’s needs. Thus, modules within the framework can be easily
configured to interact with each other in a guaranteed manner,
regardless of manufacturer.

You will be involved in the design of our software architecture towards
a generalized world and perception model and work on its implementation
in a consulting and/or supervising position, in conjunction with
internal and external teams.

The initial position is limited to two years and may be extended based
on your performance.

* Key responsibilities:*

·Working independently on at least one European funded project,
including implementing research tasks in conjunction with other European
research agencies

·Carrying out research activities towards a generalized software
architecture for robotic platforms

·Involvement in the consulting and supervision of third party R&D projects

·Presentation of project results in leading journals, conferences and
other events

·Participation in third party funding acquisition (European and/or
national level)


·Applicants must have earned a PhD in in Robotics, Computer Science,
Math or other robotics- and/or software engineering-related discipline
prior to position start date

·Understanding of the high-level robotic concepts, especially
perception, world modelling and task planning

·Detailed understanding of robotic software architectures and modelling
tools, such as UML

·Sound programming experience (preferably C++, Java and/or Python)

·Hands on experience with established robotic software frameworks,
libraries and tools (ROS MoveIt!, OpenCV, PCL) is helpful

·Fluency in spoken and written English, German is an advantage

·High motivation and willingness to work in an international and
interdisciplinary team

*What we offer:

·Worldwide networking opportunities with leading robotics experts

·Opportunities to attend project meetings in various international locations

·The opportunity to grow your role and responsibilities through the
development of new project opportunities

·The possibility to bring in own ideas for new research projects and
follow them in case of successful funding acquisition

·Remuneration in line with the current German public service salary
scale TV-L, level E13

*Interested? *

Please send your complete application documents online to Dr. Adam
Schmidt ([hidden email]) including at least two references.The
vacant position will be filled at the earliest possible date.

TUM has been pursuing the strategic goal of substantially increasing the
