[apologies for multiple messages]

There are several job openings at the Jacobs University Robotics Group 
(<http://robotics.jacobs-university.de>). The positions are suited for 
candidates at postdoc as well as doctorate student level. Furthermore, 
there is an opening for a technician:

1) Postdoc or PhD position "3D Underwater Perception and Mapping". The 
candidate should have experience in underwater mapping, especially in 
form of applied knowledge of available commercial range sensors. 
Experience with high resolution underwater sensors, especially imaging 
sonars is an asset for this position. The ideal candidate has a degree 
in Computer Science, but candidates with a background in Electrical 
Engineering are also welcome.

2) Postdoc or PhD position "Underwater Multi Robot Simulation". The 
candidate should have experience with high fidelty 3D robot simulators 
like USARsim or Gazebo, respectively with general 3D visualization and 
physics engines. Previous work within underwater robotics is an asset 
but not a must. The ideal candidate has a degree in Computer Science.

3) Postdoc or PhD position "Cognitive AUV Control". The candidate should 
have experience with high level, deliberative control and mission 
planning, ideally in the context of underwater robotics. Previous work 
on cooperative systems or semantic mapping is an additional asset. The 
ideal candidate has a degree in Computer Science.

4) Research Technician. The candidate should have experience with system 
integration and the development of mechatronics. Previous work on the 
hardware side of mobile robots is an asset. The candidate should be 
experienced with electronics design software (e.g. Eagle) or CAD 
software (e.g., Autocad, SolidWorks). Excellent German language skills 
(spoken and written) are required for this position for interactions 
with local companies.

The three Postdoc/PhD positions at Jacobs Robotics are related to the 
EU-project "Cooperative Cognitive Control for Autonomous Underwater 
Vehicles (Co3-AUVs)". Co3-AUVs is a cooperative project with the 
Interuniversity Center Integrated Systems for Marine Environments (ISME) 
in Italy, the Institute for Systems and Robotics of the Instituto 
Superior Tecnico (ISR/IST) in Portugal and the SME Graal Tech in Italy. 
The project is coordinated by Jacobs Robotics.

Jacobs University (<http://www.jacobs-university.de/>) is located in 
Bremen, Germany. It is a private institution committed to excellence in 
research and teaching. English is the sole language of teaching and in 
daily life at Jacobs University.
