1x Postdoc and 1x PhD Student Position at the International University 
Bremen (IUB)

The positions are within the project “Learning of 3-Dimensional Maps of 
Unstructured Environments on a Mobile Robot” funded by the Deutsche 
Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The project deals with learning a three 
dimensional representation of an unstructured indoor environment by an 
autonomous mobile robot. As demonstrator scenario, the system will be 
implemented on the IUB rescue robots operating in a practice disaster 

The ideal candidates have a background in mobile robotics and they are 
experienced with research in the field of mapping. Strong programming 
skills in C/C++ and knowledge of Linux are required. Possible additional 
assets are experiences with embedded hard- and software, know-how about 
off-the-shelf sensors for localization and obstacle sensing, or some 
previous research in the area of vision. For the Postdoc position, some 
experience with project management is desirable.
