About us

Technische Universität München (TUM) is one of Europe’s top
universities. It is committed to excellence in research and teaching,
interdisciplinary education and the active promotion of promising young
scientists. The university also forges strong links with companies and
scientific institutions across the world. At TUM’s Department of
Informatics, chair of Robotics and Embedded Systems (Prof. Knoll), we
participate in the EU-H2020-funded project RobMoSys (Composable Models
and Software for Robotics Systems-of-Systems, 2016-2020). The project
will coordinate the robotics community’s best and consorted effort to
build an open and sustainable, agile and multi-domain European robotics
software ecosystem. RobMoSys envisions an integration approach built
on-top-of, or rather around, the current code-centric robotic platforms,
by means of the systematic application of model-driven methods and tools
that explicitly focus on system-of-system integration. Within the
project we are looking at the earliest date possible for an experienced
Senior Software architect / Post-Doc in Robotics.

Key responsibilities:

•    Carrying out research activities in the field of software
engineering for robotics
•    Carrying out project related work including work package related
tasks and reporting
•    Dissemination of project results in leading journals and conference
in the robotics community
•    Active involvement in the open call management to ensure the most
performant experiments in order to achieve better tools, better
(functional) software, and better software models within RobMoSys
•    Active involvement in proposal management (i.e., highlighting
potential opportunities, helping to form consortia and assistance in
proposal writing)


•    Ph.D. or similar experience in a subject which is relevant to the
direction of the project such as robotics, autonomous systems, computer
science, mathematics, engineering or a related field
•    Experience in developing robotics software, e.g.,
kinematics/dynamics, control of actuators/sensors, distributed systems
•    Provable proficiency in C, C++ and experience in at least another
programming language (eg. python, java)
•    Hands-on experience in robotics middlewares, e.g. ROS, YARP, Orocos
•    Experience in either 1) knowledge representation and reasoning,
e.g. description logics, owl, prolog, semantic web, or 2) model driven
engineering, eg. EMF
•    Knowledge in geometrical methods in robotics (e.g. projective
geometry, screw theory) or computational geometry is a plus
•    Fluency in spoken and written English, German is a plus
•    Willingness to travel
•    High motivation and willingness to work in an international and
interdisciplinary team

What we offer:

•    A responsible position with interesting and challenging tasks in an
interdisciplinary scientific and management team
•    Worldwide networking opportunities with leading robotics experts
•    The opportunity to actively design the scientific scope of the
European robotics software ecosystem and the research directions covered
(in strong alignment with the scientific foci of RobMoSys)
•    The opportunity to grow the role and the responsibility through the
development of new project opportunities
•    Remuneration in line with the current German public service salary
scale TV-L, level E13

TUM has been pursuing the strategic goal of substantially increasing the
diversity of its staff. As an equal opportunity and affirmative action
employer, TUM explicitly encourages nominations of and applications from
women as well as from all others who would bring additional diversity
dimensions to the university’s research and teaching strategies.
Preference will be given to disabled candidates with essentially the
same qualifications. International candidates are highly encouraged to
