Description :
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) Requirements: • 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 Interested? Please send your CV and motivation letter with the names of three references to Marie-Luise Neitz (neitz@in.tum.de). 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 apply.
