[robotics-worldwide] several PhD positions at Jacobs Robotics

Andreas Birk
The Robotics Group at Jacobs University
(http://robotics.jacobs-university.de) in Bremen, Germany has several
openings for PhD students. The Robotics Group does research on 3D
Perception and Mapping in unstructured environments. Examples include
Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR), Marine Robotics, and
semi-structured application domains like Logistics. Jacobs University
offers an English-speaking, international working environment. The
positions are within different international projects, i.e., there will
be the opportunity to collaborate with other well-known research
institutions.

Candidates should fit one of the following profiles:

1) 3D Underwater Perception and Mapping. This position requires
significant experience with ROV/AUV design and system integration. The
ideal candidate should have some electronics or mechanical engineering
background while being experienced with system-level programming.
Previous work with sonar or underwater vision is a plus. There are
currently two AUVs and one crawler available within the robotics group
which a rich set of sensors. The position is within the EU-project
“Cooperative Cognitive Control for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles
(Co3-AUVs)” and it will be continued within a follow-up project that
starts within the next months.

2) 3D Dynamic Semantic Mapping. This position builds upon existing work
within the Jacobs robotics group on 3D sensing, 6-DoF registration and
SLAM. The related work includes the development of a simulation-like
representation of the 3D Dynamic Semantic Map that facilitates
anticipation. Candidates should hence have some experience with 3D
visualization and physics engines, ideally OGRE and Bullet. The position
is within the EU-project “Cognitive Robot for Automation of Logistic
Processes (RobLog)”.

3) 3D Object Recognition. The focus of this position is to explore the
potential of 3D range information in combination with 2D visual data for
object recognition including the learning of object models and
categories in challenging real world scenes. This position builds upon
existing work within the Jacobs robotics group on 3D sensing, surface
representations, and 6-DoF registration. A computational geometry
background is a plus. The position is within the EU-project “Cognitive
Robot for Automation of Logistic Processes (RobLog)”.

Applicants for all three profiles should be skillful C++ programmers.
Experience with Willow Garage's ROS is a plus. Please send your
application with the subject line “PhD position” to Andreas Birk
([hidden email]).
