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
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.
