the Robotics lab of the University of Bremen (Germany)
2 positions as Postdoctoral Researchers/ Doctoral Research Assistants 
(BAT IIa, approx. € 35,000 to € 50,000 p.a. gross) are available 

The research activities in the project A6-[Reactive Space] concentrate 
on the consequences of complex kinematical abilities of robotic systems 
for acquiring cognitive abilities in natural environments. In the 
context of autonomous intelligent robots, we develop, build, and program 
highly complex systems that range from classical wheeled robots and 
multipods to dynamics 4-legged robots and humanoids.

Practical experiences in the following areas are desired:

* Behavior-based architectures
* On-line learning algorithms
* Simulation with ODE
* Subsymbolic learning techniques
* Higher level AI planning

Strong programming skills in C/C++ are mandatory.

Possible additional assets are:
· experience with embedded hard- and software,
· experience with computer vision,
· experience with RTOS.

The requisites for the positions are a graduation in a relevant area or
