The employment is fixed-term and governed by the Act of Academic Fixed-Term Contract, § 2 (1) WissZeit VG (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz, i.e. temporary science employment act). Therefore, candidates may only be considered for appointment if they still have the respective qualification periods available in accordance with § 2 (1) WissZeitVG.

EASE pursues an interdisciplinary approach to the principles of human information processing in basic research. Starting from the analysis of underlying problem structures and solution strategies, the development of information-processing models is intended to enable autonomous robots to fully master everyday activities. EASE stands for open research, open data and knowledge exchange. For more information see www.ease-crc.org.

Successful candidates will support the expansion of the EASE central laboratory and conduct research in the following areas:

Tasks:

  • knowledge-based robot control systems
  • machine learning methods to successfully perform and improve robot-based everyday activities
  • representation of everyday activities and their implementation as knowledge bases and virtual environments
  • Knowledge modelling, representation and construction of knowledge bases for everyday activities
  • cognitive architectures for robotic agents
  • Integration of camera-based perception into simulation and rendering methods for everyday activities in household environments
  • web-based experimental environments based on semantic digital twins
  • scalable cloud-based knowledge representation and knowledge processing system based on KnowRob
  • definitions of ontologies for everyday activities

Your ideal profile:

  • University degree in computer science (master’s degree, university diploma) with above-average success or a comparable degree  
  • Very good academic achievements in the fields of Robotics, AI, perception, programming, etc.
  • Profound knowledge in the development of complex software systems, ideally in the field of robotics
  • Substantial Know-how on AI methods in robotic applications
