In the field of innovative software technologies, the German Research
Center for
Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) is the leading research institution in
Germany, and in the
international science community the DFKI ranks among the most important
“Centers
of Excellence” worldwide.
 
Within research projects at DFKI Bremen there are open positions for 
 
    Senior Researchers / Researchers in Underwater Robotics
 
Candidates applying for this position will have the opportunity to work
on an
upcoming project developing the next generation of underwater manipulation
systems.
 
Besides strong C/C++ programming skills and the skill to work in small
and medium
size teams, preferably experience in more than one of the following
topics are
expected:
• Development of embedded systems using FPGAs / micro controller
• Modelling and design of system on chip systems
• Development of low level communication layers
• Implementation of data compression algorithms 
 
Tasks within the research projects will be among others:
• Design of low level control strategies for several actuator systems,
especially
hydraulics using FPGA or micro controller
• Design of system on chip systems on an FPGA, integrating different
communication techniques like e.g. ethernet
• Migration and adaptation of an existing microkernel for locomotion and
behaviour control, to be used on an FPGA 
• Implementation of data compression algorithms on FPGAs / micro controller
 
 
There is the possibility for MSc to prepare a PhD thesis in that time
frame, when
applying for the Researcher position. Applications for the Senior
Researcher position
are open to post-doc candidates. 
 
The DFKI Robotics Laboratory offers a competitive salary and the
opportunity to work
with a dynamic, continuously growing team in an interesting research
environment.
 
The DFKI is an equal opportunity employer. Women are especially
encouraged to
apply. Handicapped applicants with equal qualification will be given
preferential
treatment.
Applicants should send a letter of interest, a CV, and two references in
electronic
form to:
