The Department of Informatics at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen
invites applications for the position of a

    Managing Researcher for Camera-based Indoor Surveillance (m/f)

The research will be conducted in the CoTeSys (Cognition for Technical
Systems) Cluster of Excellence, which is located in Munich, and funded 
by the German Research Foundation. The main goal of this cluster is to 
endow technical systems with cognitive capabilities, such as perception, 
reasoning, learning, and planning. Technical systems are thus 
transformed into systems that "know what they are doing", which makes 
them much easier to interact and cooperate with, and more robust, 
flexible, and efficient. Starting from the human brain we investigate 
cognition for technical systems such as vehicles, robots, and factories.

Your responsibilities:
As a post-doctoral researcher, you will guide and manage a research 
group consisting of Ph.D. students, master students and undergraduates 
that aims at visually analyzing living environments, and collecting 
information about persons and objects, such as their position, identity, 
gesture, and activity.
Cooperating research groups within the Cluster of Excellence make use of 
this information in order to implement cognitive behavior on household 
service robots.

Your qualification:
* Ph.D. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or
   a related discipline
* Relevant expertise in computer vision, cameras, illumination
   techniques, and robotics
* Interest and engagement in large scale research projects
* Experience in project management and as a group leader

Your advantages:
* Good development of your career in a large scale research cluster
* Autonomous work within a dynamic team
* Challenging projects that allow you to integrate your own ideas

As part of the excellence initiative of the German federal and state
governments, the Technische Universitaet Muenchen pursues the strategic
goal of substantially increasing the proportion of women in research and
education and thus expressly invites qualified female scientists to
apply for this position.

We are looking forward to receiving your application:
