We are looking for enthusiastic


with outstanding scientific background in

          spacecraft engineering, robotics, control engineering,
             computer science or communication engineering

who want to join our team for the challenging task to place first time a 
distributed cooperating system of four small satellites in orbit.

Excellent conditions for research are based on an „ERC Advanced Grant“ 
(one of the highest valued European research grants), as well as on the 
experiences from the already realized University Würzburg‘s Experimental 
(UWE) satellites. UWE-1 was launched as first German pico-satellite 2005 
(for research on „internet in space“), UWE-2 followed 2009 (for research 
on attitude determination), while UWE-3 and -4 are planned to be placed 
in orbit in 2013. The aim is to promote innovative technologies in the 
control of cooperating small satellites for interesting future 
applications in Earth observation and telecommunications.

Please send us your application (CV, copies of certificates, a survey on 
your motivation for space exploration, publication list) to the address
