[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Scientific co-worker in Computer Science (Postdoc, full time) at Technical University of Munich
At Technische Universität München (TUM), Department of Informatics,
Chair of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Embedded Systems (Prof.
Knoll), we are seeking a computer scientist in full time with expertise
in machine learning, cloud computing, electric circuit design and
programming, and electronic signal processing for scientific research
within a BMBF funded project on battery management. The position is
limited to a maximum of three years. Close collaboration with
experimental electrochemists carrying out fundamental research on
battery ageing is foreseen. As the project will be carried out in
collaboration with China, the successful candidate must be willing to
spend several months in Shanghai and/or in Beijing for joint activities
with the project partners

As part of the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state
governments, 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. The remuneration will be
according to TVL 13.
