Open Position Announcement – Underwater Robotics

German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence
DFKI Robotics Lab (http://www.informatik.uni-bremen.de/dfki-robotik/)
Bremen, Germany

At the DFKI Robotics Lab 2 positions as Researchers in an underwater 
robotics project will be available from 1^st of September.

The research activities in this project concentrate on manipulator 
control, visual servoing approaches for manipulator control and scene 
recognition in a dynamical changing underwater environment. The goal is 
to build a highly mobile autonomous manipulator system for deep sea 

Practical experiences in the following areas are desired:

- Image Processing
- Visual Servoing Algorithms
- Manipulator Control
- Manipulator Motion Planning

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

Possible additional assets are:

- experience with autonomous control

- experience with behavior-based architectures
- experience with embedded hard- and software,

- experience with hydraulic manipulators,
- experience with underwater robotics,
- experience with RTOS.

The requisites for the positions are a graduation in a relevant area or 
a master / diploma in computer science.

We offer the opportunity to gain research experience in a young team in a
modern and enthusiastic research environment with strong industrial and
international links. Responsibilities include project work and research,
publication of research results and teaching.
