For an EU project in the area of Robot Control, Robot Cognitive System 
Architectures and System Integration
we are offering a position in computer science. We are now accepting 
applications for a 3‐year PhD Scholarship
at the Department of Informatics at TU Munich, Germany.

Application deadline: April 15th 2009, the position will begin as soon 
as possible.

The project ECCEROBOT (http://wwwknoll.in.tum.de/Main/ResearchEccerobot) 
is an EU‐funded project to improve
the design of a compliant robot system based on the original CRONOS robot
(http://cswww.essex.ac.uk/staff/owen/machine/cronos.html). The goal is 
to investigate methods for its control,
its sensor data processing and the autonomous development of its 
cognitive skills.

Applicants should have an MSc degree in Computer Science or Electronic 
Engineering (or equivalent, from a
well‐known University). The scholarship will be generously supplemented 
with overseas travel grants and
other additional allowances. The successful candidate should have 
experience in one or more of the following areas:
(i) control systems design,
(ii) sensor signal processing including computer vision and sensor data 
(iii) high‐level AI techniques.

TU München enjoys an excellent international reputation as an academic 
leader and has been consistently ranked
as one of the three best universities in Germany.

Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, an academic 
transcript and two referees.
