At the DFKI Robotics Lab in Bremen, Germany, the following position is  
open from now on:

In the field of innovative software technologies, the German Research  
Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) is the leading research  
institution in Germany, and in the international science community the  
DFKI ranks among the most important “Centres of Excellence” worldwide.

The Robotics Laboratory at the location in Bremen (Prof. Frank  
Kirchner) starts a new project on intelligent mobility. The robot  
system will be the successor of ASGUARD (http://robotik.dfki-bremen.de/en/research/robotsystems/asguard-ii.html 
) and CESAR (http://robotik.dfki-bremen.de/en/research/robotsystems/cesar.html 

Within this project we are looking for a person with interest in low- 
level control of an advanced robotic system. Her/his task will be the  

* Development of locomotion/driving concepts for different kinds of  
unstructured terrains
* Extensive testing and analysis of these locomotion concepts (mainly  
* Elaboration of improved hardware and software designs

Candidates should have a master or equivalent in engineering or  
computer sciences. They should have a strong background in control  
engineering, an interest in alternative control methods, good  
programming skills (C/C++) and a strong interest in using experimental  
robot systems.

This work will be done in a project team with mechanical, electrical  
and software engineers. The willingness for working in a highly  
motivated team is therefore a necessity.

The position is open for post-docs as well as MSc. Starting in the  
first quarter of 2009, the project is expected to run for three years,  
giving the opportunity for MSc to prepare a PhD thesis within that  
time frame.

The DFKI Robotics Laboratory offers a competitive salary and the  
opportunity to work with a dynamic, continuously growing team in an  
interesting research environment.

The DFKI is an equal opportunity employer. Women are especially  
encouraged to apply. Handicapped applicants with equal qualification  
will be given preferential treatment.

Applicants should send a letter of interest and a CV in electronic  
form to:
