The Institute of Automatic Control Engineering, Technische Universtät 
München, is seeking

  Research Assistants/wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter with opportunity for

for the EU IP project BEAMING. The goal of this project is to 
instantaneously transport people (visitors) from one physical place in 
the world to another so that they can interact with local people there. 
At TUM this is achieved by embodying the visitor at the destination site 
by using a physical robot that can be controlled remotely and by 
providing visual, auditory, and haptic cues at the local site.

The BEAMING project is an international collaboration with 12 partners 
from 8 different countries funded by the EU commission. For this 
project, we are employing ambitious young researcher with interest in 
the following areas:

   1. Intention recognition
   2. Design and control of haptic interfaces
   3. Multi-robot systems
   4. Teleoperation
   5. Haptic human-robot interaction

This challenging project requires a team of excellent researchers with 
strong disciplinary background (control, mechanical or electrical 
engineering, computer science) and a strong interest to work in an 
interdisciplinary environment. A strong capacity for teamwork is 
indispensable. Advanced programming skills and experience (C/C++, etc.) 
are an asset.

The positions are fully paid according to German rules (13 TV-L). 
Requirements are a successful degree (master/diploma) with excellent 
records. Please send your application including your complete CV, 
relevant certificates, and some of your publications by Email to 
office at lsr.ei.tum.de with the Keyword "PosBEAMING". TUM is especially 
encouraging minorities and women to apply, because of its strong 
commitment to diversity in engineering education, research, and practice.
